* Today we celebrated the first year of life of a precious little boy who not only laughs at me, but also makes me laugh.
* I'm grateful that I was present when he discovered the joy of cake and frosting.
He ate more than half of that cake all by himself.
* I am grateful for the opportunity to spend the afternoon, evening, and night with one of the most generous, kind, funny, thoughtful, attentive, organized, loving people I have ever known. In the words of one of the most famous prostitutes in movie history, the one who was rescued by the handsome Richard Gere in "Pretty Woman," I say to you (and you know who you are, dear one): "If I forget to tell you later, I had a wonderful evening."
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful.
