My daily gratitude for:
- The simple smile and hug I received from an 8yo yesterday whom I had only met one time. I had only played with her for 5-10 minutes with her sand art. Nonetheless, we saw each other in the elevator while she was on her way to an appointment with her grandmother (who I had spoken to for 40 minutes with an interpreter). Grandmother excitedly greeted me, but the little girl waved with gusto, said happy new year and before getting off the elevator, offered her arms for a hug…and it made my day!
- Being in a city with sports playoff games! (Go Texans!)
- Warm oatmeal on a chilly morning.
