Tonight I was reminded that every once in a while (or maybe more often than that!), we need to step back and count our blessings. So here is a list of the blessings in my life:

- conversations... about books, about shoes, about travelling, about social justice, about the future... I love conversations that last for hours, with old friends and new friends

- roses... I love that Costco sells 2 dozen roses for a very reasonable price so that I don't feel guilty buying them for my dining room table

- small world coincidences... meeting new people who have connections with other people I know

- silver shoes and finding gorgeous blue dresses and silver clutches to match with them

- new possibilities and horizons that I never imagined... making connections with people on the other side of the world who can tell me about the realities of life I can only read about in books

- compliments... words of love from those who don't even realize that's exactly what I need
