gracias



Tomorrow I will start the day by rolling over and giving my husband a big ol' smooch, because I am thankful that he loves me so much and treats me so well.

Then I will get my exercise on at my Zumba class, because I am thankful for a hard-working body that has responded well to my efforts during these past months.

I will then come home and hug my kids (including my married son and his wife who are sleeping over), because being a mom has helped me to realize what life is all about.

Later in the afternoon I will visit and eat and laugh with extended family members who have grounded me during all of these married years.

And at the end of the day I will kneel down and make an accounting of these things, because being thankful means you count and recount all of the ways you have been blessed.  I will use my fingers and my toes.  My life is good.  Real good.

Sounds like the beautiful day! My life is real good too, though my body could use some Zumba!

I was enjoying the pictures on your slideshow tonight. Hope you're enjoying you holiday weekend.
