Grateful for:

The opportunity to edit and type up my parents' autobiography and high school recollections. They are enjoying refreshing their memories and enjoying remembering high school years and those years when they were young and starting out. Such a pleasure to watch and experience this with them. Such interesting and vital lives.

Grateful that technology can enrich lives and make things better, like communicating quickly with people.

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

For a reasonably quiet day.

for being able to help my parents write up their recollections for their 70th high school reunion. Wow! (they had children late in life, in case you are wondering about my age. LOL).

For the fact that the fireworks should be mostly over. Rosy doesn't like them.

For a mailman who loves my dog and always greets her so kindly.

Grateful because brave men and women committed to a cause and changed the course of history. And yes, I know history is complicated, but still....


From every mountain side
Let Freedom ring.
― Samuel F. Smith

Grateful also to the men in my family for serving. We have had a family member in nearly every single war the USA has fought in, including the Revolutionary War. (and probably before that too).

Grateful for the chance to spend time with family.

Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit!

thankful for: good doctor report on blood values. Even the anemia has improved. How I do not know. LOL.

Rosy is feeling better after an allergic attack. Poor girlie.

Heat seems to be easing up. maybe this weather will help the farmers' crops grow and get better. Hope so. We can not lose anymore farms. :(
