1. I didn't burn the house down.
2. The Palinode bought a new electric kettle to replace the stovetop kettle I destroyed, and he barely made fun of me, despite the fact that I have destroyed our last three kettles.
3. I didn't break the cat when I stepped on him.
4. The cat still likes me.
5. Even on days when it's freaking hard to see the good side, it is getting easier and easier to find five things to take joy in.
Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in 365 days of Grace in Small Things.
