gratitude:: day 25 of 30

today, i'm grateful that no one has called me on constantly being a day behind. today, i'm grateful for sunshine and sweater weather. today, i'm grateful for a parade and traditions. today, i'm grateful for sweet friends that leave little 'happy' messages on all sorts of media. today, i'm happy for the media that gets people in touch. today, i'm grateful for safety and security even though it keeps a brother away from lunch as he was working to keep us safe while we slept.

today, i'm grateful for so many things...more than the blog can really say. today, i'm sending prayers for the fear some have, the sorrow that some cannot be rid of, and the bad things that haven't quite turned around. i'm sending love, warm thoughts and hugs to those that need them. who doesn't need a hug once in a while, right?

  1. Amen, Char.

    Was thinking of you today while I was in the kitchen preparing my offerings to take to the dinner later this afternoon. You know I'm not comfortable in the kitchen, right?

    I thought, Charlane would be so calm right now, cutting out all these little leaves of pie crust. And know what? It worked. It's beautiful!
