Day 268 – A Year of Gratitude and Joy – Something Silly

I love languages and have a passable knowledge of several, but I like to joke that the only ones I am fluent in are “movie quotes,” “sarcasm,” “song lyrics,” and “baby talk.”

Day 266- A Year of Gratitude and Joy – Freckles

... I disliked having freckles. My mom insisted they were cute, but I wanted to be glamorous and beautiful. Cute was disappointing.

Gratitude and Joy, Travel

Day 265 – A Year of Gratitude and Joy – Familiarity

Family, Gratitude and Joy

Day 264 – A Year of Gratitude and Joy – The Next Generation

I am thrilled to witness a second generation of family at the same school.
