No matter what is happening in your life. . . lots of good things or not so good things . . . there are always things for which you can be grateful. Knowing this helps put life into perspective.

Please feel free to join in. It feels good! :)

Studies show that this daily task can have a positive impact in your life. :)

+ first fireflies last night
+ got some of the Village planted yesterday morning before the heat
+ the scent of sheets dried outside in the sun
+ Jazz makes me smile when he wrestles his stuffed bunny but my dogs make me smile a lot
+ Bob wrestled those very heavy half barrels out of my car trunk and will paint them for me
+ the quiet fan in a hot bedroom making sleep easy last night
+ cold water from the garden well on a very hot and humid day

My kids.

A body that works and moves even if it's more body than I'd like to have. (Watching my son struggle through physical therapy makes me so grateful for my mobility.)

The support I have here.

A roof over our heads and food in the fridge.

My husband's job.

My husband.

- DS is stoked. He is playing in a golf tournament raising money for Breast Cancer Research today. It's in honor of a friend who has beat breast cancer. The very best part is that his 'foursome' consists of friends from his high school varsity golf team. (they were the area champs in 1998) DS hasn't seen these men for ten years or so.

Hi Ruth! Thanks for missing me!!

- DH & I are taking lots of pictures of the garden. It's nice since I must stay off the grass (uneven) and this way I can see all the flowers.

- Nice weekend planned

- DH dug out huge patches of lemonbalm as it chokes out other plants.

- family, friends, you all, fb, internet, cell phone,
