Thank you so much, Opi!
Grateful for a good Fathers Day
Grateful my Dad returned my call and I had a short conversation with him and his wife. Grateful he is surrounded by love and good supportive friends and community. Grateful for his faith in God
Grateful to listen to my son practice guitar tonight. Hes working on a John Denver song from his music book - Take me home country roads. My mom played that song on guitar when I was a little girl. She loved John Denver. The memory made me cry.
Grateful to watch the movie Paper Planes with husband and son. It was so good
Grateful my son is ok. He came into our bedroom screaming and hysterical with his hands holding his throat. I swear I thought he was having an allergic reaction to something (he has a lot of allergies) and was going to grab the Epi pen. It turns out he realized after taking a sip of water, there was a bug in it and he almost swallowed. Lol
Grateful to be going to bed sober

Grateful that I have a lot more perseverance than I ever thought I did.
Grateful to be watching my alma mater and my father's alma mater in the College World Series.
Grateful that I knew almost right away that the new doctor I saw late today is not a good fit for me. I made another appt for Wed and left my MRI DVD there. On the very heavy traffic way home I realized that she is not what I want. So I have another doctor I will call after I cancel my appt with that goof and tell them I'm coming by to p/u my DVD. I hate to say it, but she was really kind of dumb. No clue how she made it through med school. I just have to keep my mojo up until I find a doctor who is a good fit for me.
Grateful for A/C, it's starting to get hot again.
Grateful for all of you! Have a wonderful eve! ♥♥♥
Peace and love to anyone suffering or struggling tonight.

Glad to see you RAL. I know the feeling about Xbox
Good for you, Aly. Keep searching and being proactive. Trust your instincts. I work in a field where I see a ton of medical disputes and differing opinions among doctors, Medical science is not black and white.
Grateful to have gotten some yard work done
Grateful that some weeds have flowers
Grateful for the boy at the garden store who gave me an extra bag of bark for free
Grateful to work on some more handpainted rocks
Grateful to be going to bed sober
