    What are you grateful for at the moment?

    I think it is a fair question that most of us can answer.

    -The string of good books I have been reading
    -My well-behaved snuggler of a pup
    -As usual, health insurance
    -Califa Almond milk
    -A cold La Croix on my lunch break

    Your turn!

    Health, free time, and enough money to do what I choose to do.

    Athleisure and pajamas, which I gave been reveling in for 3 days. They will be part of what I like most about retirement.

    Today - Seeing a snow capped Pike's Peak on my afternoon walk earlier, DH cooking dinner, and that I am safe and warm and not suffering through fires and hurricanes.

    Grateful and surprised I made it through the day with no snafus.
    Grateful to be able to go to bed soon.
    Grateful for the really fun Uber driver who drove me to the airport hotel in Orange County.

    At the moment I'm most grateful for the opportunity to move to the next stage in life. I think I'll retire in the spring, after annual bonuses are dispersed.
    The realization that I can do this and still be financially secure for the rest of my life makes me more than grateful, I think the right word is blessed.

    The more I read about struggling seniors the more grateful I am that I made the right choice in employment and investments.
    I'm grateful for the glorious fall weather and the bags of spring bulbs that I have been planting.
    I'm grateful that we had the health (and our parents were holding with theirs) so that we could take our recent trip and keep my fingers crossed our luck holds to go on another at the end of the month.
    We were just saying today how very fortunate we feel about where we are.

    Someone being prepared and at the right place at the right time. The ability of some to not panic in a situation, CPR.
