grateful
~for a little sleep after a fitful night
~for another wonderfully warm and sunny day
~to be happy doing another wave of sort and let go
~for finding treasures stashed for my kids when they're older, which they are
~to have found a tolerable limit of steps for me to shoot for which is more than double the limit I've lived with for a very long time
