TOP 10 THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR TODAY

10. My favorite time of year - love the heat of the day and the cool of the night.

9. Love the darker mornings where the Marys light up extra bright.

8. Woohoo's great start to high school - well begun is half done.

7. Rojo's amazing support team that allows him to be in the school he is, not just surviving, but thriving.

6. At 49-years-old, my husband has decided to start taking drum lessons - midlife behavior could be a lot worse.

5. My neighbors support different politicians for president, but can live next to each other in perfect harmony.

4. One of Rojo's longest/most special friend, Rosie, is leaving her house extra early today so she can come here and ride her bike with Rojo to school today - because he asked her to.

3. Rojo can coin a new phrase at school, "Give me an apple," nobody knows exactly what it means, but it's quickly adopted into everyone's lexicon, anyway.

2. We have our health, home, electricity, basic and beyond, needs met.

1. love.

Tugged at my heart strings. Especially after seeing his adorable picture today. I want to eat him.

That is a great list! I can see the Marys extra bright, too, I want to get some of those for my alter/mantle.

PS/My husband is a drummer, used to be professional. He is going to be teaching through the Drums and Disabilities program after ge gets certified. It's really cool.

You. I'm grateful for you.

And oh, my spiritual leader - you may have heard of him?

Ro freaking Jo.

Because he asked her to ... Oh, God, I love that!

We should all be so kind to respond to others' requests!

I'd like an apple today!

Nancy said...

As queen of the top 10 lists, you continue to inspire us! We should all make one once a week at least!

Maddy said...

So true. We also have any number of miscellaneous new phrases that definitely have a meaning but often we don't know what that is until much later.
Best wishes
