grateful friday a day late...

--the sun is out!
--my brother made it out safely and without an embarassingly
emotional outburst from me as a send off...
just a trembly hug and voice-cracking goodbye
--my daughter's play (she is in the choir) went off perfectly
--the garden is starting to grow and so far, i have been able to keep
the rodents at bay by covering up the plants at night

--reading this book in one night makes me realize what i DO have,
how LUCKY i really am, how GRATEFUL i really should be...

all right, now get out there and have a great weekend!
