I am grateful that we made it to Maryanna's party safe and sound and had an awesome time. I am grateful for the old friends and new acquaintances I met at her party yesterday.. I am grateful for the gifts we received yesterday and the amazing conversation with Sam (our guest blogger, not our housemate). I am grateful for what I accomplished yesterday and the toxins that are being released from my own psyche. I am grateful for a wife who after 12 1/2 years still loves me unconditionally.
