One.I am grateful that I live in the free United' States no matter what. My forbears on dads side were Irish Clark's in 1790 Thomas Clark and wife 'moved tot Kentucky and raised 7children, one of whom was my great grand father James Clark My moms side the Richeys were from Scotland. Two; I am grateful to be here even though I never wanted to be in a place like this it became necessary] due to my son losing hs job at the same time I was forced tp retire. I have a nice room, three meals a day, a new bed a place to live as my son was never able to afford a two bedroom apt again here in Garden Grove even though he; works full time. Three: I am grateful for a loving son Robbie and a best friend Nelda Rivers Four: I am grateful for ourt friends Mike David and his mate Five: I am grateful to live in Southern California Garden Grove where;there are no snows or blizzards Six: I am grateful to be intelligent and not senile lol Seven: I am grateful that I do not have some of the diseases like ms or Alzheimer or Cerebral Palsy I am sure I have left out much because thjs grows too long and few have long reading spans.

We all need to do as you have done. Actually voicing those things for which we are grateful makes for a much happier life.

Me too I come from Irish and Scottish descent but that is too long a story. I could write a book about things I have been thankful for. But more so am happier to see that you are happy as well.
