Things to be grateful for: a sandwich and a beer

This Lent, I am trying to nurture a spirit of gratitude. It's good to be thankful for the many blessings that we get--not only good in absolute terms, but good for you as well. Apparently, keeping a gratitude journal makes people more happy. So I decided to document what I'm thankful for on my blog.

So here's what I am thankful for: the simple joy of having a sandwich and a beer. This picture was taken at the Empire Alehouse in Mt. Vernon. Last Saturday, I felt like driving for no reason, so I drove north until I got hungry, and ended up in Mt. Vernon. The beer was good, and so was the sandwich. And for that, I'm thankful.
