Last week, I bunked off work early and went to the beach. It was a beautiful afternoon with a cloudless June sky and a gentle breeze blowing off the water, and I realized how lucky I was to be able to be there. I had no one to collect from school and no baseball practice to shuttle to and from. Nobody was counting on me to provide nourishment or even junk food snacks. Nobody needed me to change a diaper or resolve a dispute over a remote control. No one was relying on me for anything, and right then, at that moment, I was glad for it.
So, let’s turn Whiny Wednesday upside down this week. Tell me: What are you grateful for today?
(And by the way, if your answer is “nothing” you’re welcome to come and whine anyway.)
