Thankful Thursday December 30, 2021

I am so very thankful for so many people:
my sweet husband Russell, my wonderful mother Helen, 
my sister Nina, brother Paul, my sons Phillip and Paul,
cousin Janet, all my nieces and nephews, beloved friends Judy and Amy and all the many 
friends and neighbors we have from all over the world!
What would we do without all these lovely people?
We would be bereft of the friendships, comfort and kindnesses 
given to us over all these many years.
May you all enjoy your family and friends as we do!
Have a wonderful 2022 New year!
