this morning I am grateful to have woken up one more time. I am grateful for my wife who allows me to be me and with whom I never have to edit my thoughts or feelings. I am grateful for my students this summer who are doing an amazing job and actually reading and learning. I am grateful for all I accomplish each day and the understanding that what does not get done, does not get done. I am grateful for the time outside yesterday to feel the grass in my feet and to smell the fresh air.
