"To live gratitude is to touch heaven." 
~ Johannes A. Gaertner ~

I am grateful for the ocean, the mountains, morning, noon, and midnight; for family gatherings and hard times that bring us together; for colors, textures, the smell of wood smoke, and laughing so hard it makes me cry. I am grateful for love, courage, optimism, resilience, renewal, and the rhythm of days to keep us keeping on.
     Life is good, even when it stretches us. Angels abound, and we always get what we need.

I recognize the good in my life and appreciate the challenges that make me grow.
