-My body which is healthy and strong and allows me to enjoy this beautiful life.
-My two ladies who bring me smiles and inspire me with their words and creativity.
-Food! Having enough, being able to spend time feeding those I love, and knowing where it came from.
-Music. It inspires, it comforts, it is a gift...thanks to all who share their talents.
-Farmers who provide healthy, responsibly farmed foods for my family to flourish and enjoy.
-My home that I am ever thankful to have. The security and warmth it provides us all. Sanctuary.
-Water, being able to share the love of it with those I love, being fortunate enough to be on it in some way.
-My Irishman. He nourishes me and lifts me up. His talent and artistry astound me and how he captures
our little place in this world and this life we are making.
-Books. Sharing this love with my family is a gift.
-Kindness of strangers. Every now and then people show you that there is good in the world still. This
year that came in the form of apples.
-Laughter and giggles. Silliness and the lightness that brings is the ultimate blessing. There is nothing
more beautiful than the sound of a fit of giggles!!!!
May you all have a day full of those things that make you grateful and never forget how amazing life really is!

Yet I feel like I am holding my breath...like there is something bad coming and I have to keep walking toward it to in fact get past it. I do not want to. I want to dig in my heels and say "I don't wanna" "You can't make me" but fact is that isn't going to work. It is just going to keep lurking around teasing me and hitting me at odd moments in small ways until I look it in the eyes and say go for it...hit me! When it does it will hurt. I am sure I will in fact cry. My heart will crack a bit...but then there will be breathing and band aids and light. And after I stagger for a small bit, I will keep walking hopefully wiser and better but till then I am bracing...waiting for it... Calm before the storm...then calm again I hope...
