So much to be grateful for on this Sunday morning.

Two weeks since the horrible of the fire next door
Stewart and Sandy
have maintained their humor
have been working their butts off in the heat
of their home
we have all managed to still love each other
even more
although we have even more of a
bond now that we
are living together
Stewart finds himself surrounded by women!
Last night his sense of humor was such
that he said he wished there was a program
on t.v.
about how to restore your home
on one of the many channels
cos’ he would watch it!
Sandy on the other hand
“Oh well, just think
all new furnishings and while we’re at it,
let’s get rid of the ugly tile”
it’s a “more than a make over”
over there
it’s a
oh my in the making.
And speaking of

How bout’ these handsome Godsons’ of mine? OH MY…
All decked out in Purple, and now ready for summer, yep school is officially out! Bet the gratitude party is goin strong there.

And my goodness
I am wondering
how is
this morning treating you?
Are you ready to step UP for your day
with the blessings of all that you are
and all that is around you?
Singing songs of gratitiude for all
that are out there
during times of
great stress
good or bad
times of
movement of emotion into action
May you have a joyous day
filled with
good times
good friends
good memories

Best of all days to all who gather here
prayers are being sent on the suns’ rays
and strength in healing ways

For: FOR:

Those who have served, whose memories we honor today, this weekend and always… Those who have died defending our country and their fellow service men, along with those still MIA or POW’s… We will never forget you.
