Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Day two of feeling thankful for the blessings bestowed upon me.
Hmmm, what shall they be today?
First off, I am thankful for waking up early this morning, sipping hot tea in semi-darkness, and being allowed to wake up slowly.
I come from a gene pool of non-morning people. My people traveled to America on a ship from Hungary, now better known as Czechoslovakia. Slavs are a dark people, in mood, not skin tone. We lean toward melancholia. My uncle said it's something to do with hexes from old gyspy women....hey, that's what he said!
Back to blessings....see, I can stay on track. It doesn't take an urn of coffee to keep my mind clicking. Well, most days it doesn't.
Second of all, I am terribly thankful for our local public library.
It is a terrific place, and hub of the community here. I peruse the Amazon listings for new books, make a list, and once they have been ordered and processed into the library system, they give me a call and say, "come and get 'em". Quite often I am honored to be the first reader of these new books. So, I do the research and they keep me up to my elbows in new titles by all my favorite authors.
Could life for a bookworm, and former library staff person, be any sweeter? I think not!
While thankful for many things, those are what I'll mention for today. Thank you and good night!
