Year of Gratitude #2

Note: Older post, lost in the shuffle... re-posted here.

[Number 1 is basically at the end of the previous entry].

Today I am grateful for:

1) Cold rain that cools a hot cheek (and a quickly rising temper).
Unexpected, soothing, a reminder of the things that are beyond your control and are yet capable of immeasurable good. Just when you need it most, if you’re willing to see it that way.

2) Seeing neighbors and friends at the bank.
I am a part of a community. Even in the middle of a hectic workday, people are in my landscape. They know my name and I know theirs.

3) Grapefruit.
Cheerful pink. Big enough, and labor-intensive enough to eat that it can cover for breakfast now and a snack later.

And, as seen below — when applied properly — can also be a nice helmet.

Thanks be to you, my grapefurit. Amen.
