Today I'm grateful for:

-Twelve stitches officially removed from my mouth with no pain
-Dropping a few pounds while on soft foods for almost 2 weeks
-My mother's birthday; blessed that she's still around to share it with
-Totally enjoying yesterday's beautiful snowfall, as I watched from home and didn't have to drive in it
-My manager not only laughing at my "winter weather wimp day" but telling me to enjoy, stay snuggled in and it was a smart move because of crazy drivers (the city wasn't prepared for what happened)
-A grand grand opening for our new workplace cafeteria; a new company focusing on healthy, local and sustainable!

This morning I'm grateful for:

-Finding small ways to simplify and make my life less stressful
