I am so grateful to have a reliable car. One of my neighbors has a brand new car that stays at his mechanic.

I hate going to my doctor's office = way too much time sitting around waiting. Today they took me as soon as I arrived for my 9am appointment and I was back home by 10am. So Grateful 😁

  • TODAY I get MORE portable wifi (see picture below) πŸ™‚ My daughter bought me a COOLPAD which you can take anywhere with you when I was HOMELESS πŸ€— Even after getting off the streets, I kept it. Beats having to BUY wifi. When I am out and about and there is FREE wifi, I shut my unit off. I get NEW data every 20th of EACH day of the month. TODAY is the 20th. My OLD laptop (now recycled) was eating up my data the same day I got it due to the awful Windows 10 uodates. Never got it updated.
  • And I finally get to use my brand NEW Apple i-pad to go online to do my CONVERSATIONAL Spanish Lessons πŸ˜‰ Decided to replace my 3-year old Dell laptop when the motherboard had to be replaced πŸ™„ That was it for me 😀 Hated having to do this but totally over Microsoft. Lol, NEVER used Apple so my OLD brain will be LEARNING. My daughter already informed me she knows ZERO about APPLE = I am on my own this time 😱 She has been my electronic expert over the years. A lot easier and lighter to tote too. My laptop bag way too big for i-pad πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

I am grateful to have a loving adult daughter (my only child) who keeps an eye on her OLD Ma. This has no PRICE TAG πŸ˜‰ I never celebrate Mother's Day as EVERY DAY is my Mother's Day. She visits, texts and calls me to make sure I am okay EVERY DAY. GRATEFUL!!!

I'm grateful for the time I got to spend with my daughter yesterday and Thursday when she drove back from the far side of the state where she's in college. And today, I'm grateful that I don't have to go anywhere and that my groceries got delivered.
