#18: I'm grateful the Christmas shopping is d.o.n.e.
#19: I'm grateful for all my 35 violin students who sacrifice to come between 5:30 - 7:30 a.m. for lessons and 1:30 - 3:15. I feel extremely blessed to be able to do something I'm passionate about, from home, either while my children sleep or are at school... and get paid to do it. It has blessed my life in so many ways. Tender mercies.
