We went on a "hiking expedition" (Rhetta) after our meal today. I spent the time reflecting on what I am thankful for this year. Not surprisingly I am thankful for all the same things this year as I was thankful for last year. I'm really a very fortunate human being. The harder life gets, the more I find to appreciate. The more I learn to appreciate, the easier life gets. It's simple, really. Don't take a single thing, not even the mundane, for granted. We spend so much energy wishing and praying for more that we become blind to that which we already have. Well, not I. I am blessed, and I couldn't ask for a better life.
p.s. Dear Cameron, I love you.
