At the risk of stepping away from my usual cynical outlook . . .

Sometimes it seems like the stars are aligned exactly right, and I find myself feeling an almost physical swelling of gratitude and contentedness. I don't know what tomorrow or next week or next year will bring, but I am thankful for right now: a strong, happy marriage, healthy kids who (I think) are happy, a life rich with friends who make me laugh and make me think. I want for nothing.

And that is worth acknowledging.
