Grateful Friday

I'm grateful we saw some sunshine this week.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to help a friend who was in a horrible way.

I'm grateful for living so close to Seattle - what a great city! I am biased, though...

I'm grateful for my children who help get the house 'company ready'.

I'm grateful for a wonderful time with good friends for Tu b'Shvat.  I'm so grateful that Morgan and Alex were able to get the food ready in my absence and that we were able to get our friend discharged from the hospital in the midst of preparations - wow!  G-d is so good!

"It is a tree of life to all who grasp it and its supporters are praiseworthy. Its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace. Long life is at its right and at its left are riches and honor..." I'm thankful for the Torah.

I'm grateful for the beautiful moon Wednesday night - it was stunning!

I'm grateful that my cats want to spend time with me no matter what.  I'm also grateful I got to meet Daisy, the cutest little Chihuahua puppy - the fastest face-licker and tail-wagger in the west, I'm sure!

I'm grateful that I'm getting close to being done with the medication for my asthma.  (Steroids are no fun.)

I'm grateful for Lisa - she's so faithful in her friendship with me and I am blessed beyond measure.

I'm grateful for a new friendship.

I'm grateful for Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.  What a wonderful hospital and trauma center.  All the staff we met there were so compassionate and caring - what a blessing.

I'm grateful that my friend Cheri is home from the hospital.

I'm grateful that my special friends Kevin & Stacy had a terrific visit!

I'm thankful for my husband and how handsome he looks in a suit and tie.

I'm thankful that Morgan gets to head to the 'ranch' this weekend.

I'm so grateful for time with Lisa and Rebecca - what a wonderful time we had catching up and supporting each other.

I'm grateful that the LORD made me who I am.

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.
~Washington Irving

I am so thankful for the last week and for friendships that are born from online acquaintances.

You just never know when the Lord is going to create a friendship!

I remember the day my grandmother told me she had enough friends. Astonishing! I don't think I could ever say that, not even in my 90's.
