40 THINGS FOR 40 YEARS.
Last year at this time, I started a daily gratitude post on my social media that I coined graticember. I shared a photo each day that represented the thing I was most grateful for that day. It was a way to get me out of my holiday funk and focus on what truly mattered. You can read all about it here.
This year, with a milestone birthday coming up on Christmas Eve (my 40th) and a Christmas season I have been dreading since March, I thought I would change it up a wee bit.
So, here goes… Here is an incomprehensive list of 40 things that I’m grateful for right now (in no particular order).
Now, excuse me while I pull out my best “my mouth’s bleeding Bert” Jimmy Stewart impression, zip up to the North Pole with Gideon, and proceed to have the “hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye.”
Thanks for reading this far and Merry Christmas. 🖤

Just reading this made 2020 a little brighter. I’m so glad you are a writer. You put down in words what so many of us think. I’m glad you jumped into the podcast world as it’s now on regular rotation in my favourites list. I’m glad you’re embracing winter. Might as well. And remember that pinky swear, snowshoeing in the park. Love you Sam. Thanks for making our small town just a little bit brighter ✨
