THANKFUL THURSDAY





There is much to be thankful for today ~ I am enjoying a months vacation in the warm Florida
sunshine, with a dear friend ... with other good friends ... family nearby I will visit ... 
three sweet kitties, one my old love Zoey ... 
above a few photos of this little girl kitty at rest.

I am in a place where I lived for twenty years ... and yes, some sad memories also live here, but even more so 
I am now able to find good and sweet memories, those that bring smiles.  
A street sign, a restaurant, waves on the Indian River ... 
driving by this, or that or the other, triggers things forgotten over recent years.  
It is good to return, it refreshes my spirit, and so I am thankful.  You can go home again.
