Day 26- Gratitude Project 

I’m grateful for short days at work, a marvelous team that truly works together for the good of everyone, and for rain- but not too much- just a little. 

Yesterday I had an appointment so I only worked a half day. I’m truly thankful that I didn’t have to be there longer. There were way too many crazy things going on, too much chaos, for me to be able to manage a full day. The highlight in my short day was that it was going off the rails for my whole team, but we worked together for the afternoon and finished strong. 

Not only that, but we also got a few things organized for the coming days. I love it when we have stuff sorted out early, instead of being reactionary. 

I’m also grateful for the rain that came in the afternoon. My inlaws are not grateful for their entire house flooding. I’m sorry they’re going through such a tough time. We went over to their house as soon as we found out. 

There wasn’t much we could do until the water receded, but we were there to help salvage anything that might have been seriously damaged, and of course for moral support. But here in the desert, we need an occasional rain. Please note: I said occasional. I’m a desert dweller for a reason and if I wanted rain, I’d live in Seattle. However, my plants in the garden can always use some extra water as I’m sure could our water table. 

I’m thankful that my husband got to enjoy the rain with our baby as well. She’s never really been in the rain, so they got to play together in the backyard. I watched from the covered patio. I’m grateful for that too.
