I’m not a fan of the holidays, and Seattle’s seasonal gloomy weather tends to make my mood worse. I’m frustrated by the holiday obligations, the family tug-o-war, the unnecessary consumerism, and the obligatory cheer (which I lack).
So, my new goal is to find (and post) a daily December gratitude. I’d like to control my attitude and be a bit less of a Grinch.
So today, I’m thankful for my mom’s excellent health. As some of you may know, she’s a longtime cancer survivor, and at 77 years old, has the energy and vitality of someone 20 years her junior. She went in this week for her annual medical screening and, again, all results were excellent.
Go, mom! You’re living right and I’m grateful for you and your continued wellness.
