Today I am grateful for the honesty of colleagues, friends, and family, for entrusting me with your innermost fears and joys. I also am grateful for change and the opportunities it harbingers.
I spent the day on a boat on the Severn River with colleagues from work, celebrating the end of a leadership training class. A gorgeous day, a slight haze on the river, but the breeze burnt off summer's swelter. We tooled around Annapolis, the Naval Academy, past the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and built deeper relationship. For it is the personal bonds in work that make work worthwhile.
One week into the 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge. So far, $31 dollars raised for hospice and my local crisis center. So keep posting your daily gratitude in the comments section -- I only count gratitudes, not general comments, because articulating a joy is half the fun. And sorta like laughing -- good for your health. Plus, three lucky 'grates' will receive a goody basket of hand-picked books and other treasures, plus a feature on my blog. Think quirky, think mushy, think gen-u-ine.
