I am grateful:

1.   I am much more comfortable than a week ago.
2.   Two of my packages came today.
3.   We ate lunch at Subway and it was delicious.
4.   I managed not to curse out the people at AT&T, though they made me extremely angry by hanging up on me twice.
5.   Leigh called and talking to her helped me decompress.

I hope your day was rewarding and that you created something beautiful.

Always,
Jo Ann
