Grateful for the irrepressible American spirit, that's me.

I am grateful that the 2nd week of my big masonry project is finished. I can't believe that they'll have the whole thing done next week .. but it would be terrific, if they did!

Yahoo it is Friday! The rain cleaned smoke out of the air and we have a long weekend with which to bike and hike. For the marvelous coming together of time off and clean air, I give thanks.

I love these traditional sayings.  Hope for great test results for you!  

 

I had my first bone density test yesterday & failed!    Yep, osteopenia.  I have lifted weights for years, tons of walking especially the last 24 years.   I practically live on dairy.  No loss in height though, still 4' 11.5".   Cat Tongue

I am grateful to be finding resources for learning as much as possible about retirement while I have time to make corrections, take on new ideas, better position us for the changes and have some fun in the doing. So to RV.net, AARP.org and Escapees.com: respect!

On this, the 42nd anniversary of the event, I am grateful for having been abandoned by my family in what is seen as a Third World environment on American soils. What that experience has added to my perspective, my person, my outlook is beyond beyond.

Hurrah! Hard rain! Clean air! Thunder, even. Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah! (<- That's gratitude out of a z-z-z-ooming A-type, for ya) Now to unplug this thing and get back to straining tinctures...

 

Weeeeeee!

I'm grateful that the expression of gratitude is an individual thing. It is free. It is yours. It is beyond judgment ... and no matter how each individual approaches it, finding something to be thankful for each day will improve life. Rah!
