I made it! Yesterday was 50th Birthday Jubilee!!
I've been reflecting for a while what it means to turn 50 and what comes to mind is Gratitude. I decided to create a list of 50 things that I'm grateful for.
Here is my Top 10:
Being Alive and enjoying good health.
Rich; the love of my life who makes everything possible.
Andrew and Hanna; who have defined my life and brought me much joy!
My Parents; who loved me and left too soon.
My home; which has everything I need.
Girlfriends; who have been like Sisters.
Girlfriends; who have been like Mothers.
Quilt friends; who have encouraged and inspired me.
My garden; which provides peace and serenity.
Coco; who is a mommy's girl.
And the other 40 in no particular order:
Champagne, quilting, the farm, my iPhone, french fries, my cats, good books, lamb chops, my bed, cake, good movies, sun rise, a crackling fire, Paul Simon, wine, my bike, a belly laugh, getting mail, hot coffee, snow, Christmas, my sewing room, my hair, Mad Men, Moby Dick, my computer, junk food, family dinners, playing games, cinnamon rolls, my Dyson, Rome, cruising, dancing, art museums, NYC, car trips, Anthropology, Museum of Science and Industry, my iPod, Yankee candles, rainy days, going to the movies, the mid west, hot dogs, walking with coco, roses, Lucky jeans, chocolate and pizza night.
