This morning I am grateful for those in my circle who love me unconditionally and send me nothing but positive energy. I am grateful for all the people who read my blog and leave me comments. I am grateful for the choice I made to take time this summer to work on my own writing. I am grateful for my wife who always gives me the space I need to do the work I have been called to do. I am grateful for my friend Sam who brought me 5 bottles of my favorite thing to drink when I am having to put in long hours on a project -- club soda.
