Gratitude, Day 9: Rain

NOTE: I am a fan of 30-day challenges, and November is traditionally a time of two: National Novel Writing Month, and 30 Days of Thanks. As I am not a fiction writer, this year I have chosen to publish a daily blog for the entire month, expressing my gratitude. This may not be entirely food-focused, but expect recipes aplenty. Feel free to join me in the comments below. What are you thankful for today?

Hard to summon gratitude today, even though I know I have much to be thankful for.

Rather than pour out my complicated feelings of despair, shock, and heartbreak, I will simply say that I am grateful for the rain and a schedule that is reasonably free today so that I can grieve.
