Being sick for more then a week now has given me so much to be grateful for. I am grateful for our friend Liesl who went grocery shopping yesterday, so that I could stay out of the cold and snow. I am grateful for my wife Zoe who, especially now, that she is better, has been pampering me and make sure I take care of my sometimes stubborn self. I am grateful for my students who have been emailing me to ask how I am feeling. I am grateful for my son who told me he was not going to call me as much this week so I could rest. I am grateful for all the love that flows through my life, it is just so humbling.
