{Gratitude List}

Needed to remind myself to be grateful today.
Here's a few things on my current list:

1. I'm grateful I was accepted into NewsWatch this week.

2. I'm thankful it's the weekend because I'm eager to get
some sleep and sun.

3. I'm grateful for my animals because they love with the
biggest hearts and they love to be loved back. They make
me smile so many times a day.

4. I'm grateful I got to spend an hour with Jodi on Thursday.
She brightened my day more than anything has in awhile,
and I'm still glowing from it.

5. I'm thankful we had the money to get my laptop and car
fixed when they broke last week.

6. I'm thankful for Chelsie Reed, therapist extraordinaire.

7. I'm thankful I finished my story on Thursday so I don't have
to drive downtown over the weekend to finish it.

8. I'm grateful for my brother and his amazing family because
they are beautiful people who fill up my heart.

9. I'm thankful for my health, working limbs and all.

10. I'm grateful for music that's there when I want to dance,
cry, sing, or relax.

Carlene,

Yes. NewsWatch is exactly that. Awesome! Or I think it will be. Our "classroom" is a fully functioning newsroom. Totally hands on. I don't even think there's a book for that class. We treat it like a job at a news station. Dress for work (not school). Go from 9am to 6:30pm two days a week. From what I hear everyone is there a lot more than that. Earlier mornings. Later nights. Extra days. So, it sounds like a lot of work, but it's going to be such good experience. If you have a chance, flip to channel 116 on Cox and see if you see Newswatch. It's on three times a day. If you pop by, you'll get the idea pretty quickly. Looking forward to it!

Thanks for always being so encouraging. It's really appreciated! :)

Congrats on Newswatch.

I'm grateful that you came into that store not too many years ago with very loud children and then stayed after they left and didn't think i was crazy when i asked if you wanted a job.

I'm also grateful for run-on sentences!
