My thoughts go out to the people in Japan who are reeling from the devastating tsunami. I’ve been following the news and with every breaking article, my heart sinks lower and I hope a little harder that they will be able to rebound from this natural disaster and contain those two nuclear reactors.
When Chip called me at 1 in the morning early Friday and I found out about the tsunami, I immediately thought of Mumsies who is currently in Taiwan. I was afraid that the tsunami would have affected the little island of Taiwan as well, but thankfully she is OK. This morning, I woke up and could only think of how grateful I am for the little things in life.
I am grateful that I have a comfortable bed to sleep in. M usually makes the bed on the weekdays, but he only pulls the covers back up. I usually make the bed on the weekends and I throw all the sheets and blankets to the floor, pound the mattress with the pillows and retuck the fitted sheet. Then, I make the bed. M’s made bed feels slightly frumpy. My made bed feels like a hotel bed. Soft and embracingly pillowy and smooth. But since he makes the bed five out of seven days, I am not complaining.
I am grateful that I have a kitchen and ingredients to make ricotta potato pancakes.
Take a look at your life and think of how much you have to be grateful for.
