Older and wiser~

~Getting older...and hopefully, wiser.~
Today I am grateful for:
* My great husband, son and daughter-in-law, and world's most precious grand-children, my totally fab sister, niece and soon-to-be new 'nephew'... And all of my other terrific family members.

* My special friends here and all of you in this blog arena that daily bring inspiration and joy.

* My two pups-Lucca and Pickle.

* My home.

* Good health.

* The special memories of my late parents.

* My travels.

* Being able to get up each morning and do what I truly love to do.

Each day we awake with hopes and wonder of what our day will bring. What are some of the things that you are grateful for?
*Wonderful update~ My son, daughter-in-law and darling grandchildren surprised me and came to spend the weekend. What can be any better than this?
