Today I had a roof over my head.
Pure water came forth from my faucets.
The hot water heater functioned well, as did the air conditioning. My car ran smoothly.
I enjoyed nutritious food.
Breakfast was a good pear smeared with peanut butter.
For lunch I had a lettuce, tomato and tuna salad.
Dinner consisted of cabbage, broccoli and onion, sautéed in a bit of olive oil and soy sauce, with a small amount of chicken.
Nothing and nobody annoyed or irritated me today.
I am as certain as I can be that I did not annoy or irritate anyone.
I met with the contractor who is renovating the lanai in my home, and we agreed on a contract. Work starts tomorrow!
I did a bit of gardening, read some history, walked the dog five times, made a fuss of both cats, and enjoyed a visit with my good friend Ben.
On a day such as today I know that I am among some of the most privileged people in the world (and there are nearly 7 billion of us).
Just for today I have a sense of gratitude – “to G-d, to life, or to the universe” – whatever we call it.
