Grateful Friday

The Beautiful Clearwater River, Idaho
This week I am so grateful to have been able to travel to the gorgeous state of Idaho to visit a very special person. Virginia, who happens to be 91, is my bestie's beloved mother. And she is beloved to me, as well. I am grateful for her smile and loving faith. I love how she gets a twinkle in her eye when I gently tease her...she is such a treasure. Oh yes, I am so very grateful that Lisa shared her mom with me. I am so very blessed...beyond measure.

I'm grateful for my family and the unconditional love that I'm finally seeing... it's always been there, and I didn't even realize it.

I'm grateful for such a fabulous trip with my bestie! It's the best one in a very long time - I thank my G-d for the healing He has done in us both. And, I'm so very humbled... He is worthy of all praise and honor.
