Susan Wiggs' Gratitude Project

This morning I stumbled across Susan Wiggs' Gratitude Project for the month of November. It's simple, really. Just come up with 3 things you're grateful for every day this month. Simple, silly, or profound--doesn't matter. Almost everything we hear lately is negative: the economy is a mess, our planet is a mess, and I refuse to discuss the political climate. So -- 3 things I'm grateful for today.

1. The new paddle fan hubby put in all by himself (and lest I forget, he drags me into the den and points to it at regular intervals).

2. Being able to have a voice in determining who will run our country -- from the local level on up.

3. Knowing that regardless of who is elected, we don't live in a dictatorship and campaign promises are smoke. Nothing changes overnight, and there are checks and balances.

Please get out and vote. If you don't, then please don't complain when things don't seem to be going your way.
