What's 84?

I used to think every year was just another number. Not so! Today I think of another year as another opportunity to appreciate and hopefully learn from all of Life's lessons. I can choose to react positively to what's put on my plate.

I wish that I could express to you what it meant to me to open my mail this morning and discover the best birthday surprise ever...Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!

I have so many things in my life that make me truly grateful: my wonderful family,my health, and all of you, my dear friends! It's such a joy to wake up in the morning, open the computer and read the blogs. Once again, thank you!

If you can find Michele's Ice Cream Parlor I'll be there tonight enjoying my son's annual gift to me: a huge hot fudge sundae. See ya!
