Eight Things: Small Gratitudes

Join *8Things

I like Magpie Girl's 8*Things lists. It's been a pretty glum couple of weeks around here with lots of existential angst (surprise, surprise, right?). So I thought maybe this was my invitation to focus on the positive for a few minutes. If you live for the existential angst - check out my other post for the day and come back soon - I'm sure there will be more.

Small things I am grateful for:

1. Hot baths
2. Friends that listen to my ranting and raving.
3. Longer light in the evenings.
4. A space to write.
5. Benadryl
6. A husband who never minds going out for a bite when I don't want to cook.
7. Homemade Mother's Day cards and gifts.
8. Possibility and another chance every day.


  1. Great list! I *love* #5!! My life wouldn't be the same w/o Benadryl! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. tee hee hee. i love number six. i've got one of those husbands, too : )

  3. And I like #3, #4, and #8.

    I just want you to know, too, that I'm throwing a party for you here, since you're graduating tomorrow. So sad you'll miss it. Balloons and cake and everything. That's what you get for living how-many-states-away-from-me? And I'm not talking mind-states! Hee, hee, hee...xo

  4. ditto #6. and the existential madness.
