Thankful For...

What a fun contest our Debe Maxwell, CRS has created in the Thanksgiving Challenge 2021. The challenge is simple. Post something you are thankful for ten days in a row. Anything. Whatever. Just write... but where to start?

There is so much to be thankful for that it's hard to pick just one.

Today I am grateful for my beautiful, accomplished, talented daughter, who lives only one mile away.

A delight that we can talk, text, email, and even visit at any time.  And just recently, I attended a gathering in honor of her birthday. A group of talented friends, with scores or iPads in hand,  got together to sing the operas of Gilbert & Sulivan. The piano accompanist, as always, is my daughter, Erica. 

Her home was full of singers, music, laughter, smiles and a couple of hours went by fast but, what fun.

 Erica organized this gathering and is also the pianist. I admire her amazing talent and skills. Love to watch these hands of hers.

                                      I am a very proud and thankful Mama!
