we need a little music; need a little laughter

1. I am grateful for good neighbors, like Bill, who live upstairs from us. He has lived such a full life and listening to his stories and experiences makes me hope that when I am his age I will have also made so many wise choices, given so much to my family and church, and have such interesting stories to tell.

2. I am grateful for gifts that I wouldn't have thought to purchase for myself--like this cool purple bracelet that I love, but that I never would have found on my own.

3. I am grateful for a background of good morals and judgment that helps to guide where I am going in life.

"We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude."
--Cynthia Ozick
