I usually reserve Monday for Gratitude, and today’s no different, if only a bit shorter:

  • A month devoted to poetry.
  • So many books to read and share
  • Sunshine on daffodils
  • Loren, my first brother.  It’s his birthday today.  If you’d like to know more about my love for Loren, please follow this link to my tribute to Loren:  Golden Boy Smiles
