Gratitude - Day 2

Today I am truly grateful for:

Tears. Sometimes it just feels so good to cry. To release that pent up emotion, honour it, and move forward.

Sunshiny 'winter' days. I am absolutely loving the spring-like weather that has filled our city for weeks on end. Summer shoes, light jackets and little strolls to rejuvenate on a beautiful February afternoon.

I know it sounds kind of lame, but really, I am grateful we have access to a vehicle. We don't use it often, but on the days we do need it, I am really grateful we can. This morning we passed a mother at the bus stop with her young child in a stroller. I see them there most mornings as I wait with them for the bus to take me to work. It just made me think about how challenging getting around this huge city without a vehicle could be- especially with a toddler in tow.
