happy, grateful, thankful list

This morning, with a very sharp wind gusting, I worked picking up branches for 40 minutes.  I gulped in oodles of fresh, blustery air.  I know, later in the year,  I will whine and complain about the intense heat of the summer, however, I am wishing/needing/craving some warm, intense sunshine.  I am feeling a bit of cabin fever and trying to find the happy in being at home. Oh sure, each day I am home, working on healing and wellness will make the summer months that much sweeter.    Winter storms race across our beautiful country.  Many are snowed in.  Some temperatures so low in fact, that spending 40 minutes outdoors gulping in fresh air may be a bit much.  I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer.  I want to list the happy things I am grateful for.  I am borrowing the “happy list” idea from another blogger today.
