This morning I am grateful to have woken up one more time. I am grateful for the conversation I had with a friend last night who for the first time in years listened to me instead of talking the whole time. I am grateful for my wife's telling me I do too much around the house and to give her the space to do more. I am grateful for the date I am going to have with my wife today. I am grateful for the lessons learned this week from elbow macaroni.
