What do you know, I'm a blogger! I don't know that I have much to say, but I guess it doesn't matter since I don't expect much traffic. Maybe I'll just throw in a couple of thoughts and let it float out there in space. My thought for today - I am so grateful! I live in the greatest country in the world. I am safe, I am loved, I have medical care when I need it, I have a family, and I don't have to worry about a bomb going off on my street tomorrow. Maybe it's not perfect, and maybe some people hate us for our affluence, but I'm just glad to be here and to be privileged enough to take part in that glorious thing called freedom.
