I'm drinking an excellent cup of coffee in a warm, snug house, and watching a beloved child snore. I am on occasion overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude, and today is one of those days. At the end of the year, I like to take stock, count my blessings and review my lessons. Here are my lessons and my continuing resolutions as we fall into 2012: Be tolerant. Be patient. Be humble. Be kind. And always, always, be grateful.How about you?
