Good Morning. The sun is shining and it is about 9 degrees. So it looks nicer than it feels outside. Thankful that I can enjoy it from inside a nice warm home!

Thankful that I woke up feeling great today. And that it was early. (Maybe a little too early – 5::00 a.m.) Was ready for the day by 7:30 am!

Will be visiting my mother and father today. It’s my day… Wednesday. I’m grateful that they are my parents and grateful that I have the opportunity to help in them in some small way.

I’ll probably spend the night. I’m glad they are able to live in such a nice place. Surrounded by friendly, outgoing people!
