I am grateful for…
…Loving children who grew into responsible adults,
who I am proud to call friends.
…Grandchildren who delight me every day,
giving me hope for a bright future for our world.
…Friends who laugh and cry with me as we age together,
fighting and protesting all the way!
…A safe, comfortable home filled with reminders of
adventures and a life well-lived.
…A 40-year-long job that allows me to mentor women of all ages
and still find joy in it every day.
…The endless joy of sitting at my computer, writing poetry, or my
blog, emptying out the good, the bad and sometimes, the ugly.
…A bookshelf overflowing with the eight books I have written
and published, sharing my heart and soul with all of you.
…A country where good people still fight with every ounce of
their being to maintain the integrity of our democracy.
…Brave men and women in uniform who leave their own
families to fight for ours.
…Sunshine after a storm; joy after painful loss; a smile and hug
from someone who listens and cares.
…The music of laughter that keeps a song in my heart.
