Expressions of Gratitude -- Part 1

Fourteen year ago today, at 12:13 am, Andrea began her journey in this world. Almost a young woman now, she's perky and caring and bright -- a wonderful gift of life. May she continue to flower and use her gifts to make this world a better place.

Grant, her younger brother, placed fourth in the Nashua city elementary school cross-country races this morning. He was the lead runner on the boys team from his school. Now in his third year of cross country, he's made great strides (pun intended) in improving his time. More importantly, running has allowed Grant to find his own path to achievement. May this experience strengthen his confidence and be a source of courage when he feels at a loss.

And may I be ever grateful for these two beings who so enrich my life. Soon they will be adults and living lives of their own.
