Counting My Blessings

Today is my birthday
and I'm counting my many blessings.
Here are a few:
My sweet and loving best friend, Bill,
who also happens to be my husband;
That talented, funny, inventive young woman
who is my daughter Kate;
A crazy little black and gray striped kitty,
with perfect white paws,
Miss Kristy.
Beautiful friends, wonderful memories,
a very good life;
My childhood dream of being an artist -
now a reality;
Knowing that better things
are yet to come-
a certainty!

Hope everyone has had a great weekend!
