Today, I am grateful for the beautiful surprise my wife gave me last night -- a new professional knife set and butcher block. Now I can work on my knife set. I am grateful to be getting my voice back. I am grateful to be feeling so much better. I am grateful for the power I have to set the direction of my life. I am grateful for my boys, Mr Mittens and Wally, who kept me company while I was resting last night.
