 Wow! It sure has been a crazy day. This is going to be a short article but tomorrows will be bigger and better so remember to stop back in. Seems everything I had planned just fell through. Life can be like that sometimes though.  I have been thinking about how lucky I am to be alive. I mean I have so much to be thankful for. I have a wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters, two adorable Grandchildren.  I could go on and on. The beauty of Nature is all around me as well. I am just so fortunate and yet sometimes I take it all for granted. Life is short. Life is full of surprises and life is good! Enjoy Life!
