Life Is So Very Good

I just finished a meal at my favorite Korean restaurant. I load up on the kimchi...probiotics have been linked to improved mood in people with depression, and I've had my struggles. With a warm, satisfied belly, I walked into the night air. I parked a few blocks away...have to get in those 10,000 steps.

I took a deep breath of the clean, crisp night air, looked at the beautiful neighborhood the restaurant lives in, and thought, "Life is so very good."

Yes, the are challenges and frustrations in the day. My life is not exactly how I would like it to be, but I'm on my way.

Sometimes, a warm belly, clean air and beautiful surroundings make us forget all the things we'd like to change.

I sound like Garrison Keillor on A Prairie Home Companion as I wrote this blog on my phone, in 10 degree weather...I want offer a small bit of gratitude for the simple things that make life sweet. Cherish them.

Life is so very good.
