Gratitude, Day 9

It has been a crazy couple of days. I'll just do a list of stuff today.

  • I am grateful for our country, and the system that we live in. It isn't perfect, but it is what all other countries strive to emulate. I sat on a Jury last Friday, and it is amazing how our system works. What a blessing it is to live here, where people have a chance at proving their guilt, rather than their innocence.
  • I am grateful for holiday cleaning. I have done some deep cleaning lately, and it feels so good to dig in and really get something clean. Note to self: it may be a good idea to pull the couch away from the wall every now and then. The cats tend to lose hair against it, and you don't want to spend another hour vacuuming it. Just a suggestion.
  • I am grateful for good friends, and how good spending time talking about life with them feels.
  • For bedtime, when my little ones are asleep, and I can blog for half a minute.

And with that, I am going to head to bed myself. I am so excited for Thanksgiving this week, and I hope this is a great week for everyone.

I think it's so neat that you got to be a part of the judicial process. I'm a tiny bit jealous. I never even had to go in when I got picked for jury duty. Now you can say you've been a foreman on a jury. Awesome!

I sat on a jury this year for a first degree murder trial.... it really was amazing what you learn about the whole criminal justice system Becky. I had a renewed appreciation for our police force and the sheer amount they do with a crime scene. It was a grueling 4 weeks and I went home absolutely emotionally exhausted after we were sequestered for 3 days......we found the defendent guilty of second degree.....
Love the couch suggestion....think I'll go do that right now!!! Have a great Thanksgiving down there, we are gearing up for Christmas here! Kasandra
