Appreciate Today!

 

Gary and I start and finish every day with gratitude and thankfulness for the good life we are able to enjoy.  This past year, we've thought this, even more so quite frequently. It's given us the chance to 'sort' through what we really enjoy doing and do more of that.

 

We are also very grateful for all our wonderful friendships. We have enjoyed our 'bubble' of friends throughout the year. There are 8 of us in total that continued to enjoy dinners, picnics etc. And now, we're planning a party on Memorial Day Weekend to include many others.  You see, here in AZ we're open and many folks have been immunized for some time now.  Yes, I know we consider ourselves lucky.  When we hear what's still going on in CA or NY it's seems nuts to us as I'm sure it does for many folks living there. 

 

What has changed this year is that one of our dear friends is very ill and probably won't make it past this year.  We're still hoping for a miracle and that could happen for her.  It's hard to imagine life without out this amazing lady.  Gary also just learned that his long time Air Force buddy does not have long to live either.  Kind of a weird week.  And at the same time, we're grateful for both of these dear friends.  Life is good and it makes us even more aware of just how important it is to 'make the best' of each day.  Think good thoughts, be kind, let others know you care,  and do what you enjoy. Pretty simple, isn't it...

The ole saying "if you want a friend be a friend" was spoken at a seminar here yesterday and what a true statement and you and Gary certainly do you part. What if everyone started their day with the attitude of gratitude.

I am sorry to hear of your two ill friends, but happy to hear you are appreciating time spent with all your friends. I am also happy to hear you're planning a get-together for Memorial Day. I'm sure it will be an amazing day.

And yes, thinking good thoughts, being kind, letting others know we care and doing what we enjoy - those are all simple and so important.

Please continue to celebrate Memorial Day weekend with loved ones. They belong in your life and the quest for that true sense of belonging is in high demand. Take pictures - lots of photos. Show old movies, if possible - people love to see themselves at younger times. Start a scrap book and let everyone sign and jot down a few words (remember 8th grade and HS when everyone had autograph books or signed the year book)? Be brave and don't tip toe around the sorrow - be glad they were in your lives. It's okay to live, laugh, and love with all your heart. Everyone needs to know, they matter. 

Hugs & Memories really do matter.

Hi everyone, I saw comments from people who had already got their loan from Anderson Loan Finance. Honestly, I thought it was a scam, and then I decided to make a request based on their recommendations. A few days ago, I confirmed in my personal bank account amounting to $15,000 dollars which I applied for. This is really a good news and I am so very happy that I advise all those who need a real loan and who are sure to reimburse to apply through their email (text or call) +1 719 629 0982. There are sincere loan lenders! They are capable to lend you a loan. Contact Mr Anderson  E-mail: andersonraymondloanfinance@gmail.com
