This morning I am grateful for my friend Cookie Stringfellow and the way she has learned to know some things about me that not everyone picks up on. I am grateful for having completed an overdue project yesterday. I am grateful we do not have to leave the house this afternoon as our road will be closed for repaving. I am grateful for the food for thought my friend Heather Feinman Fox gave me last night. I am grateful for the opportunity to have spent time getting to know one of my students Drea Moore on a deeper and more personal level yesterday.
