A ShutterBug Explores ~ Thankful Thursdays

'The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent upon it,
it can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else to do.'
~ Galileo Galilei

It's 'party time' on Cape Ann MA.

We are sharing with: Brian's Thankful Thursdays.

What am I thankful for:

~ that I am crying everyday ~ healing from loss of  my sweet Yorkie, Zoe

~ that I am meeting the challenge of the 'new blogger.'

~ that I am healing from the loss of of my sweet fur person but it sure is taking time

~ for the distraction of my feathered friends 

~ for my family and friends

~ for my blogger family friends

~ for being basically healthy

~ for democracy


I love your comments, Thank you.
