I was writing in my journal. I don’t like the spelling of ‘grateful’ like it should be greatfull or something like that. As I resist it, it bugs me more. Then, in an act of vengeance, I go to Merrium-Webster and test it’s validity. Yes, First Known Use: 1552. Oh, it’s a great word from Latin: gratus. ok. I accept. I won’t resist grateful again.
And I am grateful for the love of family and friends. Even on Black Friday, the love persists. Be careful out there.
