  1. Yay! I am thankful for a morning spent painting in a Kindergarten class, almond butter on Rudi's gluten free toast, my freakishly strong triceps, chilling out in balasana when I need a break, gerber daisies, the way the air smells right before it rains, my 8 bazillion freckles, all of my friends and family who make me feel loved…and thankful for this article!

    Great to take a thankful break – THANKS Clare!!!
