I am grateful for my Mom, although she passed when I was 18 she instilled in me her love of life, creativity and strength.

Today is her birthday and as I think back, it was 8 years ago, on her birthday that I sat on the front porch of a foreclosed home that I was able to purchase as a single parent.

Can’t help but think she is here with me today....

“Damn right I love the life I live, because I went from negative to positive”....

This morning I'm grateful for:

-My wonderful vet clinic; no openings but said to bring a book at 10 a.m. and they will work Cleo and me in
-A solid workout yesterday and a great talk with my sister
-Plans this dreary/rainy looking afternoon to drink tea and play my favorite word game with a friend (we need rain, but they're predicting heavy intensity)
-My passport renewal application is done and in an addressed envelope, long overdue on my "to do" list
-A replacement exercise ball when I thought the one I had was deflated due to cold winter temps, but instead, had a slice in it (methinks a kitty claw is the culprit)
-Free air (imagine that!) at Quik Trip making inflation much easier than foot or hand pump

Grateful to love and be loved on Valentine's Day - not just as a spouse, but as a mom, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend!

Much else to be grateful for as well - but today seems like a good day to be especially grateful for the wonderful people in my life, both on earth and in heaven! :)
