Living gratefully and thinking of you all friends~family~bloggers

As I sat in the living room this morning putting my socks & boots on, the thought came to me "how lucky I am"   I'm not really one who looks for bliss, or living the dream, I don't think I've ever thought of myself as being lucky. Today though, while walking through the house half dressed, cup of coffee in hand that Mike had made before his 3 mile walk with PeJoe. The pile of  clothes in the bedroom and then the pile on the dining room table that was there from last night after drying it all day outside because I don't want to buy a new dryer. The living room table with the morning sun on it showed  a lot of our animals furr, which we have our animals because of me. I could go on and on about how living with me can be difficult, most days, but my man Mike...he is the best and I am totally lucky that he loves me and gets me and understands that it is more important for me to art then it is to put all these fricken piles of laundry away or vacuum or such.

Oh yes, be ever so thankful for that good man of yours! They are rather difficult to come by...and interesting how your son has aged as quickly as my son did...? How in the heck does that happen??
