30 Days of Thanks #11

This morning Ella woke up at 5:30 wanting a drink. It took me a while to fall back asleep, and as I tossed and turned a bit I thought of how thankful I am to be able to sleep (most of the time). And while it may seem a little trite, it got me thinking about all the other things I can do that I often take for granted. As it usually does, the moment passed and when I woke up I went about my day not giving my abilities much thought. But for 20 minutes or so, in my quarter-asleep state, I was overcome with gratitude for all that I am able to do.
