Day 4 of the 30 Day Happiness Challenge

1. I am grateful for this babe in my belly. Every kick amazes me. Even the not so great parts of pregnancy are still wonderful to me. Sometimes I am completely dumbfounded when it hits me I am making a PERSON! He's half of me and half of Will which is incredible enough but he will be an individual with his own personality, hopes, and passions. It's crazy. I was ambivalent about having kids for much of my life but now I'm so excited to meet him and I couldn't be happier.

2. I'm grateful I have a job. It's not a dream job and not what I expected to be doing but it's a good job and I actually feel accomplished and appreciated. Plus I have insurance!

3. I'm grateful for my kitty cats! No matter how my day goes, coming up the stairs to my home makes me smile because there's always a furry face or two peering under the door's crack waiting for me. They're always there waiting for me with mews and purrs and big fuzzy hugs. Even Bob who used to hate me!

My meaningful event from the past 24 hours was Ms Salina going out of her way to give me a ride home from work last night because I was without an umbrella. It was a great reminder of how rich I am.

Hi Jess, Would it be possible to get in touch with you? I read the OnMilwaukee interview with you from a few years ago. I am a writer working on a film about a PSO and I'm wondering if you'd be willing to consult on my project. I'd rather not put my email up on this blog, but I'll check back here. Maybe you have some brilliant idea about how we can communicate. Thanks so much--and so glad to have stumbled onto your work!
