Boxing Day ~ December 26th

All the adversity I've had in my life, all my 
troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me. You 
may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the 
teeth may be the best thing in the world for you...

 In our family three of my cousins have birthdays on 
Christmas day the same as my mom.  Today December 26th 
is our niece Danielle's birthday.  Looking at Danielle one would
 never imagine all the things she is going through.  Let's just say 
this year has kicked her butt, but that girl does not give up. 

Here at home all is well.  I'm doing better everyday, but I really
 would like for all the headaches to go away.  It's bad and at times I
 am a bit concerned, especially when my BP keeps skyrocketing.  I am 
so ready to be better and to feel better.  Sorta forgotten what that's like.

Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better. As long
 as you keep going, you'll keep getting better. And as you get
 better, you gain more confidence. That alone is success.

My parents celebrated with a little getaway.  Combination 
birthday present to my mom and Christmas treat to both. 
 Always good to see them enjoying some alone time and 
just treating themselves to a few of life's little pleasures.

Arvid, Sniff and I had a quiet but very relaxing Christmas. 
 I made dinner at home, Arvid took me out for a little drive,
 and we finally got the rain we wanted.  We can still use
 a lot more, but we got a little soaking.  Good start.

Wishing everyone a happy day.  Last week in December, so make it count.

Good day to all.  SWFL finally got some much needed rain.

May your Boxing Day be filled with good food, good company,
 and lots of love.  Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life...
