Hi Ruth... thanks for getting us started!

No matter how good or not so good our lives our going ... we always have things for which we are grateful. It puts life into perspective. It feels good to remember our gratitudes.

- even more garden work done

- I helped at Mimi's yesterday

- ankle feels some better today

- willingness to get on the scale

- I found my Mickey Mouse garden hat... I love that hat.

- friends, family, YOU ALL, fb, internet, cell, music

- saw some long time friends yesterday - nice

- talked to my sister yesterday

- the grill on the deck
