Thankful Thursday

I am back from Western Washington University where I spoke to a class of incredible grad students.  Western is one of my very favorite colleges in the Northwest.  The students there are so grounded and very down-to-earth.  It's a very "Northwest" school meaning-- casual in dress and attitude and a laid-back lifestyle.  I always love visiting there.

Normally on Thankful Thursday I highlight someone or something I love and I may or may not do that as I post today, but I think I need to just check in here as I've been feeling a little disconnected.  Less since my trip to WWU, but still, not quite myself...

I think I need my own personal gratitude list.  So here it is.  What are you feeling grateful for today?

My Gratitude List:

Family and Good Friends and good energy people

A good friend's guest room with a Moonstruck Chocolate Bar hidden for me under the sheets.  (Thank you, NP!)

Wishing you all good things today...



  1. All good things to you, too!

    I'm grateful for new opportunities presenting themselves lately.

    And nice drives are very gratitude-worthy.

  2. I felt a gratitude-list urge today, too. May be the weather?

  3. Wow - sounds like you are getting dangerously close to Cheese Cake ;)

  4. Hannah-- Good luck with those new opps!

    J9-- Yes, spring gratitude!

    Michael-- that was one of the funniest things I've read in a long time! DANGEROUSLY close to cheesecake! ;-)
