What are you grateful for today?

Today I am grateful that my husband Jack finally went to the doctors. He has been putting it off for about a month. He had a lump and it turned out to be just a cyst. What a relief.

My kids, dh and my sister. I love them all so much I don't know what I'd do without them. I am grateful for every day I have with them.

so very much...the beauty and bounty of this earth, the kindness of friends and strangers, my job, my partner, my life. I pray that the fear and hatred of this world will pass. Live fully, love wastefully.

I'm grateful that I woke up on the right side of the dirt. I'm grateful for that most days, except when I had too much tequila, or not quite enough, the night before.

I am grateful for having a terrific hubby and a healthy family.

I am grateful for my wonderful little dog Buster who give me so much unconditional love.

Also, today I am especially grateful that my Volvo ONLY needed a new battery and not an alternator!
