Gratitude

Grateful.

...for texts from friends far away...

and crafty friends nearby.


For little things,

and 
 Fulfilled dreams...


and words that make me cry.

Grateful for dressing up, 

and dressing down,
in quilts made from love.

For kids who still sit on laps,

and kids that I'm proud of.
  
Grateful.

For standing in the shadow 

of Strength

when i am weak.

Thankful for many birthdays to celebrate this week.





Gratitude.

You have much to be grateful for. Including the fact that you look beautiful in green. ;)

I ache just a little that you were so close and we couldn't connect. Maybe someday. :)

On a completely different note: I have never seen Rocky. None of them. I lived in Philadelphia for 6 years, have had family in that area for almost 17 years and have never, ever seen Rocky.

Another random note: They filled "12 Monkeys" at my train stop when I was a senior in high school. I have seen that, though I don't recommend it. ;) However, Brad Pitt is exceptionally good at playing crazy.
