Today's post is filled with much joy & celebration. Logan my son was born twenty four years ago on November 16th.  I have been blessed with such a wonderful child who is both warm and sensitive.
My mom for the last two days has been sounding great and full of life. I thought that this was a good time to perhaps reflect on our lives. So for these two special reasons this for me is a special day to celebrate and acknowledge all the people in our lives. All the people who we love and all the people who have touched our hearts.

It is a moment to acknowledge all the things in our life, and to be thankful for all that we have. I feel so lucky to also have a wonderful husband and my dad, who when  he was alive was so loving to me. My brother and I have had our up's and down's  yet today maybe out of my mom's illness I feel much love for him and appreciate all that he does and especially in his caregiving to my mom.

I watched on 20/20 this week a special on Gabrielle Gifford and it brought tears of happiness to my eyes.  Except for my mom who is my hero, Gabby inspired me and I felt uplifted from her strength , determination and courage. Before she was shot I did not know much about her, yet today I think that who she is can make any of us a believer. Believe in our strengths and believe in who we are.

So I would like to thank my mom, my son, my husband ,my dad and Gabby for having me feel the joy's of happiness as we enter the holiday season. Each of us has something in our lives to celebrate. Yes, everyday that we open our eyes and get out of bed no matter how difficult some days may seem,
we need to realize that day is a gift. A gift that we sometimes may take for granted. So no matter what we are going through, I hope that you can find that bright spot in your life to feel some joy .

I would like to wish everyone and their family a very Happy Thanksgiving and to send hugs to each and every one of you.



  1. it is so good to be grateful for all we have.

  2. It was a good show and has lasted for me a while. I think of her struggle and how her husband stood with her. I read The Vow, the real story, which is different from the movie, written by the couple. I suggest you read it. It will inspire you about how brain damage can be worked on, even if the memory of the past is gone forever. It was much more of a struggle than the movie made it out to be.

    I see your husband is now commenting. How sweet. My husband won't read, but sometimes I read him something I've read. Keep up the good work, and Fonzi keep loving this special woman.
