Lillian’s gratitude for today:

I am thankful for books.


Beautiful people … Attending the Nevada Caregivers’ Coalition Luncheon .. With the Romano duo as my guest!!! Thank you to my fabulous step-father for nominating me!!

I’m grateful to all who are caregivers … To quote from the Agenda for The 7th Annual Caregiver Recognition Celebration luncheon which was held today ….

“Caregivers, by what they do, enhance the quality of life for older adults and individuals of any age with disabilities.”

Each caregiver nominated received a certificate of recognition from United States Senator Dean Heller, Office of the Governor for the State of Nevada, Brian Sandoval, United States Senator Harry Reid, a Shining Star Certificate for the Linda Carr Caregiver Award, Congressional Recognition from the United States Congress, a fabulous lunch, door prizes, a movie themed basket and just an all around inspiring two hours.

Blessings and thanks to all who are caregivers for anyone in our society who needs extra help and assistance …

Thomas’ gratitude for today:

I’m thankful and grateful for joke books.

Today I am thankful for this beautiful city and state in which I live and the peaceful sense of awe I receive from it . . . Reno, Nevada . . . I love every curve and bend in the landscape of the hills and Mt. Rose, the sunrise, the sunset, the moon and stars, the amazing Lake Tahoe, the magical clouds, the skyline, the people, the friends I have made . . . Thankful . . .

December 27 2013:

A truck to use for moving, a job offer, another potential job opportunity, several writing opportunities, a blog set up, a place to stay with another family if needed, and $8,414 … in just 2 weeks of creating and sharing my blog post. My heart and soul overflow with gratitude and love for all y’all! I am staying open to all opportunities, blessings and miracles that arise. I will be creating a monthly package for ongoing blog maintenance as soon as I get this house packed. More purging and packing today and dropping off an application for an apartment. I like that the give away pile is growing bigger than the keep pile!

I sure am glad that cars come with these handy little books that tell you how to do “stuff” with the car. Oil, transmission fluid and coolant all checked today. That poor baby was thirsty, needed oil and antifreeze.

Thomas was eating chips and picante sauce with me. Said “Mmmmm, this is good! I’ve got hot sauce tongue” – and then kept on eating and eating and eating it! Gotta get this kid down to a real crawfish boil one day soon and see how he likes that!
