I really do have so much. Everything I need. More than most . . . These things make me happy.

Finding joy in simple pleasures
Time to do my favorite things
Friends who care and understand
Fun in the most unexpected places
Goals to guide me
Hopes to carry me

Stars [and Heaven’s help] to steer me
A heart full of love and gratitude
Grandchildren to adore and dote on
and Peaceful dreams to end most days

And, of course, Sunkist oranges.

I’m satisfied where I am in life. Yet still so much to do and improve. So many worthwhile pursuits just up ahead. I’m thankful for the quiet and peaceful moments of an empty home. The time to think and study and ponder. I’m thankful for this season.
