31 Days of Gratitude – Day 11

DAY 11: I am grateful for teamwork.

In the early morning hours, I was yanked from my slumber by a loud smash. Startled, I sat up in bed but my husband was already out and moving towards the entryway. The entryway where my beautiful crystal vase was shattered into pieces on the floor and my guilty (but cute) cat was no where to be found. Sigh.

Without even talking about it, we started picking up the pieces together, then I got the broom and he got the dustpan (ok, I had to ask him to get that), and we cleaned up the mess together. “Good morning!” he said. I smiled.

It is such a total bummer that that beautiful vase is now just a memory. But the ease with which we leaped into teamwork still has me smiling and I started out my day (early) and grateful for my wonderful husband. We don’t call ourselves Team KickAss for nothing! (Seriously, that is what we call ourselves).

It’s so nice to have someone to lean into, whether that is a husband, a wife, a friend, a parents, a sibling, or all of the above. On a larger scale, our whole world is a team. Imagine the pieces we could pick up if we worked together.
