Day 18 in Gratitude

My original flight out of Atlanta tonight was for 7pm but due to weather the flight has been canceled so I'll be spending night #7 in Atlanta. I'm bummed but it is what it is, you can't fight Mother Nature. You never see a eagle straining in the wind, he doesn't pick a fight, spreads his wings and just gives in. And so tonight I'm taking a lesson from the eagle and giving in. I am grateful to be safely on the ground.

I am grateful to have had a fabulous dinner in the hotel restaurant. The description for Terrace reads; Enjoy sustainable fine dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner at the upscale Terrace Restaurant overlooking Peachtree Street at the Ellis Hotel in Atlanta GA. Serving delicious American heirloom entrees and supporting local and regional farmers, fishermen and producers, Terrace captures fresh simple flavors. Savor the pure aroma and tastes of natural and organic ingredients bursting with delicious flavors and sustainably-sourced ingredients. If you're ever in Atlanta, you must try it!

I am grateful to be going home tomorrow. It will be a crazy day of flying home, going to work and trying to catch up on everything that's been happening but it's all good. And the best part? Numerous hugs and kisses from my husband, face licks from my furry friend and a great nights sleep in my own bed!

What are you grateful for?

  1. I am grateful that my husband, daughter and I made it safely back down the mountain on I70 Monday night. Lots of skiiers returning from a 3 day weekend mixed with an extra 2 feet of snow falling made for a very long and messy drive home. 20 minute traffic stops at the Eisenhower tunnel didn't help either. Reports on the radio of other traffic woes such as a rollover accident that closed I70 at Colfax and a freak accident on I25 where a tire flew off a south bound semi and hit a north bound car (which, I learned last night instantly killed a 35 year old mother from Frederick, the town adjacent to mine)added to the nightmare. We arrived safely home and slept like babies in our own beds, even though it was 4 hours later than it should have been. I am grateful for my wonderful neighbor who fed and cared for my pets while I was away.
