It's A New day...

There are things in life we don't want to happen.  But have to accept; things we don't 
want to know, but have to learn, and people we can't live without, but have to let go...

One of the many favorite things I like about living in this city is the fact that the grocery store
 is just a few steps away from us.  Mariano's is just the most awesome place to shop. I have 
seem some arrive there in a limo, but most walk since it's in the middle of everything.

Aside from the huge selection of cooked foods, there is a pizza bar, a salad bar, a wine bar,
and there is music on the outside.  You can buy whatever cut of meat you like and if
you like it will be grilled for you any which way you want it.  We have not tried this as yet,
 but with the weather so beautiful maybe one day we will have a steak grilled there. 

We had a pretty busy day yesterday.  Had to stock up on food, litter, toys and treats for 
Sniff Sniff at Pet Smart.  The a trip to the Whole foods market to stock up on dried fruit,
bread and some other favorites.  Arvid can never say no to Home depot so that was our next 
stop.  Last, but not least was Jewel Osco, another grocery store where we shopped and shopped.

The scenery here in the city is so beautiful, but the traffic is a killer.  A trip that should
 have taken us less than 15 minutes took close to an hour to get home.  Did not help 
that it was the 5 o'clock rush hour.  Once home it was playtime with Sniff Sniff.

Brutus and Shadow are always in my thoughts and always in my heart.  Not a day goes by
and I don't miss Brutus.  I look at Sniff and sometimes I think I see my Brutus. 
 I really do.  Sometimes I forget and when I see Sniff I call him Brutus.  I try to not
 do it, but sometimes it just happens.  How I miss my Brutus.  So very much.

Life is good.  Sometimes it gets a bit stressful, but overall we can't complain.  
Sometimes I just have to stop and remind myself that even though everything is not 
exactly the way I want it to be, it is still a very good life.  Yes, I remind myself 
everyday that there is always something to be grateful for.  Always.

Good morning all.  Just a reminder to all of us.  Be thankful for what you have 
today,  because it could all be taken away tomorrow.  Happy Thursday everyone!

No we don't always get what we want.  But consider this: there are people who
will never have what you have right now.  When life is sweet say thank you 
and celebrate.  When life is bitter, say thank you and grow...
