Happy Friday! I am grateful to be alive right now. A year ago, I was sitting in a hospital, tense and concerned, praying. I’m grateful for all that I have learned about life and love in the past year. I’m grateful for everyday with my dear spouse and how life shines as her. I’m grateful for all the lights in my life – my family, my coworkers, for working someplace where kindness and compassion are practiced, for friends who are inspirations to me, for sweet dog friends who always make me feel welcome and loved, for cuddly cats who curl up in my lap. I’m grateful for this amazing journey. Peace and blessings.
