"If your baby is "beautiful and perfect,

never cries or fusses,

sleeps on schedule and burps on demand,

an angel all the time,"

you're the grandma."

Age is just such an incredible blessing,
the softening and the rounding of corners.
And the sort of meat-tenderizing effects of aging.
Like being a stone in the river – the sanding down of the sharp edges.

                                                                                       - Anne Lamott

This Thanksgiving day I have so much to be Thankful for that I just had to say so.  My family is a blessing - from my Mother and my sisters and their families (including my nephew) - to my children and their families (their In-laws are a wonderful blessing to me) - My grandchilden (the two precious ones now and the one on the way).  I am so thankful.  I am thankful too, for the time we had with the family we have lost. They stay with me in heart.

I am thankful for my friends, both old and new, the ones I see all the time and the ones I haven't seen in a long time.  They are all great people and it is a positive thing in my life.  My on line friends are a blessing too - the ones I have seen in person and the ones I haven't but hope to someday. They enrich my life in so many ways.

This beautiful world we live in -  What a blessing!

How I pray that everyone has blessings like these!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

So much!!!!!!!!!!!


So much has been given to me,

I have not time to ponder over

that which has been denied.

I cannot even imagine

where I would be today were it not

for that handful of friends

who have given me a heart full of joy.

    Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

"You must live in the present,

launch yourself on every wave,

find your eternity in each moment.

Fools stand on their island of

opportunities and look

toward another land.

There is no other land;

there is no other life but this."



Henry David Thoreau
