It’s that time of year again when we give thanks to those things in our lives that give us pleasure and comfort and being grateful for our family and friends. While I am always grateful for those people who enrich my life, I wanted to provide some levity and offer up 5 things I am most grateful for this year:

  1. Caffeine – Not only does this keep the juices flowing, but also ensures that I can stay focused and able to do my job.
  2. Babysitters and kind neighbors – They allow me to attend off-hours events and participate in community activities when we don’t have other childcare options.
  3. Grammarly – Helping me avoid huge grammatical errors and oversights in my writing when the caffeine hasn’t kicked in yet.
  4. Chocolate – It is the perfect complement to a bad day or to celebrate a victory.
  5. Great books and podcasts – Whether to inform or provide some kind of escapism, they always serve a critical function in my life and are very much appreciated.

What are you grateful for this year?
