A random list of gratitude.

I'm home.
I feel sick, mostly awful and I want my mum.
I need to make a conscious effort appreciate the good stuff today.

So here is a list of 20 things I've come up with (in no particular order):
  1. Sunny and warm winter days
  2. Lovely students who tell me that I should be at home resting
  3. Lovely co-teachers that send me home to feel better
  4. Awesome, caring and thoughtful friends all around the world
  5. Hot chocolate
  6. 8 followers + 2 rss feeds = 10 readers on my blog.  Double digits baby!
  7. A wonderful phone call from yesterday from Tasha that is still making me smile
  8. Mum
  9. Daytime TV tag lines: "Mum, why won't you top inhaling butane gas?"
  10. Allan's appreciation when I gave him the blanket I made for baby Marcus
  11. A wonderful, loving and patient husband
  12. Aliya + Hussein are married!
  13. The All-Whites' awesome draw against Italy - Italy has the talent, but the Kiwis have the heart!
  14. Extra-large tissues with aloe and lotion
  15. Fuzzy warm track pants and hoodies
  16. Chicken noodle soup
  17. Getting mail
  18. The gorgeous condolence letter I got from two boys that were in my class a couple of years ago
  19. 32 Father's Days to appreciate Dad + 1 to remember him
  20. Navaz, Shazen, Noah & Maya
  21. The Coupers (which includes a former Wheeler)
  22. Sleeping off a cold
Look at that.  I made it to 22 things.  I'm off to sleep (and yes, I feel a little better.)
