I am grateful that I have the house to myself today as both Sam and Zoe are gone for the day, I rarely get these times alone with myself. I am grateful for the upstairs laundry center so I can do laundry independently and ensure we have clean sheets to sleep on tonight (especially my favorite ones). I am grateful for the sun shining in my window and the way it glistens on the snow. I am grateful for having enough money to pay my bills even with the emergency vet bill this month. I am grateful to have lived through yet another year.
