It’s too easy to forget all we have to be grateful for so I’m stopping to do so today-
Today’s Gratitude List-
My wife’s constant joy for life, and, in spite of her diminishing mental capacity, her ever present love radiating out to everyone she meets.
Our excellent physical health, strong and vital bodies that take us out into the world on foot each day.
Family and friends who reach out regularly to share their love and care for us.
A small town life that is safe, convenient, and filled with beauty.
A home that fits us in every way.
Money in the bank, no debts, and enough income each month to meet expenses.
Health insurance, including a caring and intelligent doctor who cares for both of us.
Advanced technology that lets us connect with friends and family and allows me to write and publish for a worldwide audience.
Fresh tomatoes for BLTs.
The smell of roses by the door.
My wife’s delighted descriptions of hummingbirds buzzing about the feeder.
A treasure chest of wonderful memories to light up dark days.
Lastly, dementia is taking my wife’s mind slowly, enabling us to make the most of the life we still have.
Yes, I could go on and on, but I’ve written enough, thought enough, to be reminded that despite our life challenges, we’ve got a lot of good going for us.
