It was another early morning. I’m thankful for my years of throwing together lesson plans on the fly because I was able to get through a day of tutor training without being fully prepared. I’m thankful for the amusing mix of student tutors and their willingness to put themselves out there. For the help I got rearranging the lab and making the space more inviting. I’m thankful for donuts and zucchini soup (not together). For laughter that makes kissing difficult. For coming home to a cleaned up kitchen. I’m grateful for the neighbor who rescued my puppy after he escaped from my fenced-in back yard. For funny texts from my mom. And for puppy snuggles, cat purrs and kid hugs. It was a pretty good day.
