I am full of grateful feelings today. I am healthy, and happy, and feeling quite inspired. My family is all doing well, as well — we are very lucky.
Tomorrow is Dad’s 80th birthday — Happy Birthday, Dad! I give thanks every day that you are taking care of yourself. Remember, you and P. promised to dance at my 75th birthday party. I am going to hold you to that. What many changes you have seen in your lifetime! Much love and best wishes.
I spent the afternoon with Mom and DB, at the Bowdoin College Women’s Basketball game. Getting out of the house and into a noisy, cheering crowd did me a world of good. Bowdoin beat Wesleyan 61-41. DB played basketball in high school and college, and she explained a lot of the more complex maneuverings on the court. Now I understand much better. I can’t wait for the next game.
The temperature is 46℉, a welcome change from one-digit temps last week. Rain has been spitting off and on, and I just caught a bolt of lightning through the living room window. Hopeful we will lose a lot of built-up snow and ice. If it doesn’t freeze tonight, most of the roads should dry up, making for safer travel for everyone.
Yesterday, I published my 1,350 post on this blog. I’ve never stuck with anything this long. Thank you all for encouraging me to write. In my family, friends, health, and happiness, I am a very lucky woman.
