Always Thankful ~

love life and nothing intimidates me anymore...

 The most important thing in life is to learn 
how to give out love, and to let it come in.  

Yesterday our day started with a trip to 
Coral Ridge Mall.   First we had breakfast and enjoyed 
some time together.  My mom, Mala and I.

From there my mom and Mala had a date with 
the nail salon.  No matter how much time passes, 
Kim, the owner always remembers my mom.  
Whenever my mom is in Fort Lauderdale and
 my sisters this is where they come. 

 My parents after all lived in Weston, and this was
 where she always came for her manicures and 
pedicures.  I miss having my parents and Mala
in Florida.  Mala and family also lived here.

Sniff came out like a bandit.  He always gets
 presents from my family.  I also ended up with a few
 goodies.  Mala insisted on buying me a dress.

Sniff sniffing our drinks.  Wondering what's going 
on with all this company we are having.

My life is surrounded by good people. 
 It's filled with love and happiness, and I wish 
everyone can feel the same.  It is not because I 
have everything I want.  No, it is because I 
have exactly what I need and who I need.  

Mala was in the mood for some Latin cuisine, 
so yesterday we took her to one of our favorite places. 
 Luckily everyone likes the food there.  My parents, 
Arvid and I.  Always an enjoyable time, and even
 better when shared with the ones you love.  
Thanks mom and dad for the dinner.

I am having a wonderful time.  A little tired at time, 
but I won't change it for the world.  Having family around
 is always a special time, and I know that when everyone 
leaves it will be very quiet.  I won't think about it
 right now.  Just enjoying my time with them.

Mala and I did manage to squeeze in another margarita.
I am already missing her, even though she has not left as
yet. Mala is my little baby, and for her I will do any and
everything.  That being said I would do the same for all my
sisters, nieces, the grand kids and my 2 step daughters.

I am fortunate to have a wonderful family here and
 in Norway.  Life has been good to me and I
 plan to always be good back to life.

Wishing everyone the best of times.
Sniff by the way is still cold.  

We are shaped and fashioned by what we love...
