Gratitude with an "E"

Day five of the gratitude reflections following the alphabet brings us to an "E" day:

Engines, as in search engines - such a great invention! I probably use a search engine every day....

Early, as in early bird - I love getting up early and enjoying the morning.

Exercise, one of the reasons I like to get up early. Exercise helps me feel great during the day, have more energy, stay healthy and in shape.

Energy, as in the natural energy that comes from sleeping well, exercising, and eating a healthy diet.

Eating, yes. I love to eat. But I am invested in eating well, a balanced diet. Ok, usually I am. I can junk food out with the best of them - but I hate how cruddy it makes me feel afterward.

I'm sure there must be more Exciting things I could put on this "E" list, but this is all I can think of at this time...
