My morning gratitude for:
- The Duomo in Florence, Italy. This morning I saw an outline of a hotel in the fog and I was reminded of the dominating aura of the Duomo over Florence, and for the joy I had climbing those steps and walking through that cathedral when I lived there.
- Adam Boatz, a friend from church. He also has a role as stepfather and a father too and shares similar experiences. I love being able to hang out, talk football, talk crazy parent stories, and just be dads (and drink a beer!). He is a good man and thoughtful man, and a good dad/stepdad.
- Waking up when it is light outside. I mean, I love waking up “later” and not completely feeling like it is 5 in the morning.
- Beautiful blue sky this morning!
