Gratitude is good for you. Science tells us so.
Gratefulness boosts health!
And my health needs boosting.
“Be selfless for selfish reasons.”
Be grateful to be healthy.
Today I was grateful for:
Sick leave, that allowed me to stay home and hawk loogies into paper towels instead of exhausting myself at work coughing on patients
Sunshine, that poured in through the front window in the morning and lit up the lavendar topiary
The Lavendar Topiary–newly added to the plant collection last week, to replace the one I sadly overwatered over the winter. The nursery had two shipments sell out before I could buy them earlier this summer. I asked them to call me when the next shipment arrived. And they did!
The Nursery Worker Who Called–thank you to the diligent and caring garden nursery person who shepherded the lavendar topiary to my home!
Ovaries that continue to produce eggs. Now all we have to do is get them fertilized and grow them into a healthy baby!

Gratitude for green grass, warm sun, and blue waters with cloud shadows.
