This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

I Am Thankful...

I am thankful
for my health,
 happiness,
 my husband,
my children,
my grand children.

I am thankful
for my Dad and Mom
my four brothers
and my sister.

I am thankful
for each and every one
of you
dear blogging buddies
who listen
who support
who share
laughter and tears.
without whom,
I would have
many lonely days.

I am thankful
to live
in these United States,
 for our
many freedoms;
despite
all the challenges
our country
now face.

I am thankful
for the food
on the table,
the roof over
our heads...
 for the Blessing
of spending time
 showing love
with my family
and friends.
