101 Gratitudes

Earlier today, Dan Brook told Mike Larsen and me about “100 Blessings,” a Jewish tradition. The idea is to acknowledge at least 100 blessings each day. It seems like a good exercise. That comment prompted me to jot down the first 100 gratitudes that came to mind. I stopped at 101.  With apologies to those individuals who did not emerge this time, here they are:
