Musings on life, family, and the leading interest of the day..

I’ve been advising other people to journal and give thanks for the good things in their lives, but I’ve been remiss in doing the same. So even though today, once again, it’s raining …

I’m thankful to have a roof (and a new one at that!) over my head. I’m thankful that even though my heater doesn’t heat much over 60 degrees, at least I have that warmth. I’m thankful to have a dog who greets me and loves me and lays by my feet wherever I may park. I’m thankful to have a granddaughter to pick up each day after school so that I may share in her life. I’m thankful to have two daughters that live nearby who actually seem to like to spend time with me. I’m thankful that I have the space that I may begin to plan a spring garden. I’m thankful that I still have the ability to learn new things and to keep an open heart. And on that note, I shall close for the day.

    I enjoyed reading your beautiful reflection. Sometimes when life starts getting to me, all I have to do is look around a bit and realize how fortunate I am. I thank God each and every day for a new day of life!

    I sincerely hope that you enjoy your garden this summer.

    Greetings from Mexico.
