Happy 43rd day of the year! The birthday of both Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin in 1809. The 2016 edition of this day is opening beautifully here in the Bluegrass and I am grateful to be alive and living it. I’m grateful for the future famous-citizen-of-the-universe who is being born right now and their contribution to the good of all. I’m grateful for my hot coffee and warm slippers and all the other creature comforts that I enjoy, for my dear spouse and her tender heart, for all the wonderful people who have come into my life through my relationship with her. I’m grateful for travel and taste buds and memory and windows to see outside, for date night, for helping and caring, listening, sharing, doing and simply being. Life is a gift and I am grateful for it! What makes you smile today?
