Gratitude List 1860

(1) I was 199 lbs when I weighed in at the doctor’s office yesterday. First time I’ve been below 200 in over five years. Running, working out, and grateful.

(2) Once again I am grateful my daughter Echo is a daily figure in my life.

(3) I woke up humming the old Herman and the Hermits tune, “Henry the 8th.” You may expect a ragtime version in short order. Grateful for all the little tunes that pop into my head these days.

(4) Great five mile walk this morning, heading to WinCo’s and back to buy microwavable meals with my new Idaho State food card. I was awarded $142 in food benefits, which will greatly reduce any food insecurity I have been facing on my budget.

(5) The show Plaza Suite, which I’d been planning on attending with my professor friends last night, was canceled due to Covid. The good news is I was given a restful repose for the evening, and a decent eight hours sleep for the first time in ages. I believe I am a healthier man than I was two days ago. Grateful for my health, my fitness, my high energy, and my life.

“They who wait on the LORD will renew their strength.
They will run and not be weary.
They will walk and not faint.”
— Isaiah 40:31
