First- I am grateful for my family. From my kids- The Mad-Middle son and Sarah recently had a 3rd Mad-Grandkiddo, and I will say she is gorgeous- little Claire was born before I went on vacation- to my sister who graciously shared her house and her time with me- to my dear Mad-Accountant who dealt with the logistics of my recent loss and generally calmly puts up with my frenetic activities and somewhat dramatic tendencies..... Of course I can't forget my other two kids, grand girls, my brothers and my momma either. :)
I appreciate the fact that I got through the year with only one minor yet extraordinarily annoying injury and I really am entering birthday month ready to finally have some summer. Now if the rain would quit (speaking of annoying) there could be a whole lot more kayaking and biking and walking and weed-pulling. But hey there is no drought so there is that.
I am SO SOOOO LUCKY I have the friends that I have. From my long distance friends who I adore with all my heart to my travel companion to my colleagues who are so much more than that to the different people who I would love to have lunch with this July (hint hint). I am so happy to have so many amazing people who make my life so much better.

There are material things and personal things that I am grateful for as well, but the above list is the most important and so I will leave it exactly at that.
And I wish you all the joy this Sunday and birthday month can bring you. Muah.
