Gratitude

I was a crab-ass today. Poor me’s all day. While watching a segment on folks with facial tumors, I had an a-ha moment. What an ungrateful little turd I’m being. I’ve got it sooooo frickin good, it hurts. My life is amazing. Truly.
It seems a little cliche to do this as a blog post, but I hope you’ll indulge me while I share my working gratitude list. It always helps me to add to my list when my attitude’s in the shitter. I haven’t done one this year, so here goes.
