I am so thankful the barred owls are back in our neighborhood! Nothing like sitting in the nighttime quiet when all of a sudden, through the closed windows no less, you hear this coming from the wooded area:



I could lean out the window all night listening. Too bad they doing their mating call when it's colder weather.

I am thankful for the support of friends that "get" me.

CG, when I was a little girl on the farm, every night there was a Whip a Will that sang all night long outside my window. Your post sent me on a search. Thank you for reviving a childhood memory. The sound I fell asleep to every night.

Thumbs up

Today I am grateful for finding a solution to my legs becoming easily stiff, with aches and pains after some slight exertion. I purchased an electric massager (has a reflexology attachment and also an infra red one for pain). It freed up the stiffness instantly and I feel like Lazarus!

Today I am grateful that my mother has overcome a significant hurdle/imminent crisis. We were told that she may not make it past this weekend....that may well still be the case but she has perked up a lot and that is a blessing.

That is not just good news, that is great news. So glad to hear it.

After a year of living in two cities due to jobs, my husband has returned home! No more weekend hubby. We are back together! He starts a new job April 20th.

You have to be a special kind of woman to be the wife of a man who is away from home more than he is with you. It takes a lot of patience and love. Glad to hear the two of are back together again. Good luck to your new found joy!
