Today, I'm grateful for the internet. In the last 24 hours I've had a couple of experiences that have demonstrated the power of the internet to make something that would have been very difficult or clumsy into a simple task. I really can't imagine how day-to-day life would work

Today, I'm grateful for the return of the birds in the spring. I was struck by the sound of their songs this morning when I walked out the door. There presence makes the morning so much more dynamic. A month ago it was the sound of cold snow under foot. I like the change.

Today, I'm grateful for already knowing how to solve a computer problem that has resurfaced. A couple of weeks ago my windows XP laptop wouldn't start up after upgrading some software. I spent 3 days and some very stressful time trying to fix it. I eventually figured out the solution. This morning the problem is back. But this time I know the fix. The second time through these things is so much easier and I've grateful for that right now.

Today, I'm grateful for the arrival of spring. OK, I know it's supposed to snow again tomorrow but it was so nice yesterday to have temps in the mid 60s. It's been a long time since I've felt that kind of sunshine on my skin as I didn't take a vacation this winter.

Today, I'm grateful for the early morning hours. I got up a bit earlier this morning to start my day and week and it's feels good. I love those early morning hours when my thinking is clear and the world seems fresh and full of possibility.

Today, I'm grateful for flexibility. I had a meeting yesterday at 4 PM that got rescheduled to this morning at 6:30 AM. I was able to attend from home, using an online meeting, and it went great. Usually I don't like these kinds of early morning things but today I was grateful that the technology available allowed the flexibility in planning and execution.
