Day 237: not very gracefully grateful on a heinous-day-not-worth-writing-about

25 Aug

I saw the word grateful today and thought it said graceful. 
Amazing how one letter can completely change the meaning of a word.

Also ironic what a “c” does in place of a “t” — because, as I sat staring at the word grateful, not feeling very grateful after a heinous-day-not-worth-writing-about, I thought I was seeing things.

Does it say graceful or grateful?

My eyes scanned the word over and over again as if playing tricks on me.  Finally, I focused in and realized it, indeed, was the word grateful.

There are so many things to be grateful for, even on a heinous-day-not-worth-writing-about.  However, I find I am not all that graceful in remembering to be grateful.  It takes a few too many huffs and puffs and screams inside my brain before I calm down and center myself again.

And, so it is, on this heinous-day-not-worth-writing-about, I am very grateful for all that I have to be grateful for — not all that gracefully, mind you, but grateful I am.  I suppose there is love I can find in that somewhere.

At least this day is over.
Blog post done.
Great.
