59 Candles, 59 Things – part forty eight



Fifty sixth thing:  As I near the final few posts in this series, I want to reflect the blessings in my life.

Waking up after a restful night’s sleep, having tea while snuggling with Tipper and Biscotti are little moments of peace and joy each morning.


Seeing my weight loss on the scale (thank you Weight Watchers) is gratifying and until the last few months, wouldn’t have merited a mention.

Being married to Spence, having shared more than 25 years together is such a gift. I’m grateful for our travels and the home we’ve made, filled with years of happy times.

I’m grateful for my garden and perhaps more so for my ability to handle the amount of physical commitment to stay on top of it.

I’m lucky to have the love of a family that I’m close to and proud of and friends that have enriched my life beyond measure.


I’m blessed with good health and enjoying every minute of retirement, getting to fully explore many interests and experiences with enthusiasm.



I feel lucky to acknowledge each day how much good surrounds me and to be aware of the gift that is this moment.

  1. Take time to do what makes your soul happy. The girl in the picture could be you. I challenge when you are ready to start something new, to take an art class as I just KNOW you have a natural ability for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
