this morning I am grateful to have gotten 90% of my winter course done. I just have to do announcements, calendar and make two 15 minute videos and then i can do the rest after the fall grades are in. I am grateful for my wife who supports me when I am tired and reminds me to be gentle, patient, and kind with myself. i am grateful to finally have my surgery scheduled (whoo hoo). I am grateful that my niece will be coming here for another visit. I am grateful for Sam bartering with me for unsweetened cranberry juice.
