I am grateful that I was able to finish editing one chapter in this dissertation and get it off to the author this morning. I am grateful to have gotten some sleep, at least enough to wake up with some energy this morning. I am grateful to have woken up at all as I just learned that my future sister in laws cousin passed away yesterday. I am grateful for my learning how to stay calm and loving, even when I am exhausted. I am grateful for giving myself permission to have played for a little bit yesterday to relieve some of the stress.
