This morning I am grateful for the ibuprofen which seems to be easing the pain in my back. I am grateful for having made it through the first four hours of blackboard training to help me prepare for teaching online in the spring semester. I am grateful for the love and support of my family who always encourage me to take care of myself and honor the needs of my body, mind, and spirit. I am grateful to be able to forgive myself for past transgressions and live in the moment, not in the past. I am grateful for indoor plumbing which makes it easier to take care of my needs, especially on cold, wintry days.
