I Know What You Are Thinking….

Wait… didn’t you write to us yesterday?

Yes I did…but I am becoming bored!  Aren’t you?

It is my birthday...and many people are writing to wish me good cheer. So I am sitting by my computer acknowledging the well wishes.

No story would be complete without the mention of the Corona Virus. My guess is that EVERYONE is tired of hearing about it and welcomes when it is over.

You can go back to my very FIRST blog in July 2012 and read how is quickly coming up on my 4 year anniversary of my stroke; that was 602 Blogs ago! Can you believe it has been 602 Blog Posts?

When I started, I figured I can go for 100 of so Blogs; but here I am at 602! My first few year a blogging, I had pictures, but I had to delete them because I was sued.  I guess they don’t appreciate using the photos that other posted on line. Now I pay a licensing fee to ShutterStock so I can use their photos.  I must say, they have some awesome pics.

Anyway, thanks for reading this.

Do I appreciate Now?

Today is good!

I appreciate Today.  Both Gordon and I feel good–healthy and strong.  We still get to live in our house where we have lived for 13 years.  Our kids are delightful.  The sun is shining.  It is warm today but it will be cool tonight for sleeping.  I ate cookies for dessert.  Most of the bills are paid.  The sun is suddenly at an angle, showing Fall is on the way.  The car is full of gas.  I’m not worried about tomorrow.  Yesterday was pretty great too.

When I was a kid, we sang a song in Sunday School:  “This is the day that the Lord has made!  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”  As a kid, I didn’t understand why a regular ol’ day deserved rejoicing, but I do now.  As with most people, I have had some good days, some bad days, and some truly awful days.  All of them have brought me to this day and today is good.  I am happy to take the time to appreciate it.
