For each morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
This year, as every year, I am incredibly thankful
for my sweet and wonderful family --
my dear parents with their up-beat attitude despite health issues;
to my sweet and cute Hubs (Mr. Tennis);
my wonderful children - the big ones (Philip & Catherine; Connor),
my little sweetie, Maddy, cutie-pie granddaughter Janie
and couldn't forget our not-too-naughty puppy, Muffy.
We are so very blessed!
