I have been excessively bemoaning excess.

I simply forgot to express gratitude.

I am deeply, deeply grateful for grandparents who wish to have a connection with my children. I may not always appreciate their choice of gifts, but I am grateful for the love that they are meant to express.

I am grateful for my home, and all of its inhabitants.

I am simply grateful…

No matter how much I want to make conscientious changes — I am grateful for what I have and to have the privilege to make more mindful choices in the future.
