I'll never~ever~ever give up!

I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,

I'm retired at 61 and still paying my bills (barely).

my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!

Thank you for taking time to comment on my blog Staying Safe. There are so many others who vote blogs as the "Feature Blogs" that are just about beautiful pictures or loveliness... and we all need to think about our safety as a primary goal... no matter what we are doing!! Charlene was my 'wake up call' on how I look at my small town.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. During the last few weeks I've thought OFTEN about another comment you made -- that I shouldn't look at these long sojourns as "vacations" but just as living in a different place.

It was a great insight and something I need to put into practice. While we don't eat out much, I do enjoy exploring new grocery stores and I also enjoy my wine! emoticon

I can understand your feelings. She is so cute. You are a great granny and it is fantastic that you can spend so much time with your grandchildren. Mine is half way around the world. Skype is helping but I am missing so many little things about them.
