Gratitude Journal #235
Today, I am grateful for my mother, Dianne, who put up with me, and for her mom, Ann, who put up with Dianne, and Ann's stepmother, Ethel, who put up with Ann. Ann's mom died when Anne and her six siblings were young, and Ethel stepped in and raised them as her own, showering her love on three generations. Her example led Ann to shower love on her own children and grandchildren and eventually great grandchildren, as Dianne showers her children and grandchildren today. I am grateful for my mother's capacity to love.
Today, I am grateful for my husband, who has decided that birthday presents are grand, but the added years are not. So he's stopping at last year's number, but keep the presents coming. Happy birthday to my honey bunny, big-green-egg master, crazy triathlete, honorable bread winner, comic relief, iron chef, and partner for life. You're continuing to kick butt at forty mumble-mumble, and I love you. Happy birthday!
What are you grateful for today?
