worthy of acknowledgement

What's the weather?
What time is it?
I'm lost and need directions.
When I hear a great quote and want to share it with a friend.
When I want to hear my hubby say "I love you".
Capturing a moment forever.
Staying connected to the office when I'm out of the office.
Tracking my eating habits.
Tracking my exercise habits.
Reading the news.
Reading a book.
Listening to my favorite bands.
Learning a new language.
Ordering a prescription.
Ordering online groceries.
Buying sheet music.

oh, and making a phone call.

for all these reasons, I am grateful for my R2D2!

Being grateful when the world seems to be falling apart.

I'm starting this blog to remind myself, and maybe you, that there are so many things in life to be thankful for. These days, life happens quickly and loved ones come and go - before someone you really care about leaves forever, I hope you let them know how much they mean to you.

It's been a hard few years for me. I've been going through more downs than ups. But with this blog I am challenging myself to keep an eye on the ups.. and post about them daily!

So, here goes!  I hope you'll join in!
