thanku would seem like a really timely exercise. However, this morning... I'm coming up dry.
I tried to get my kids to do the work for me. Kate pouted. Patrick said, "I'll do it. I'm thankful for... everything. And rainbows."
Kate, her arms folded, scowling, finally acknowledged, "I'm grateful for Grandma and Pap. Family. Food. Can I be done now?"
Perhaps my cheerful attitude is contagious.
I remember reading a tweet from the late children's writer Bridget Zinn a few days before she died. She was desperately ill when she wrote, "Sunshine and a good book. Perfect."
Hugs; wonderful friends; dog kisses; the knees in my back when my kid is snuggling with me at night; a husband who loves me no matter how difficult I am; sadness, because it makes us appreciate happiness all the more; good health; God; love; life.
Thanks to all of you reading this who are blessings in my life. --Jeanne Marie
