*for a home that is dry and warm, not like the thousands of people without a home following the earthquake in Turkey this week
*for healthy parents, not like my friend who is on a flight right now because she got word this morning that her mother had an aortic aneurism and was headed into surgery with only a 50/50 chance of survival
*for healthy children and grandchildren, not like other friends whose teenage son has been suffering from severe post concussion symptoms which may now be as a result of something far worse like a brain tumor
*for an awesome physiotherapist who although I sometimes accuse of torturing me, has made it possible for me have far more range of motion and way less pain than a friend who is in so much pain right now that she has to lie flat on her back
*for a Starbucks card from some thankful kids who gave it to me just because I had helped them out so much(you know who you are)....so today on this rainy, wet afternoon I could treat myself to a Salted Caramel Mocha which is oh so delicious.
