Narrowing down the eight things for which I am grateful is like chopping off one of my limbs. There is so much I am grateful for; however, I am limited to eight for today.

I am grateful for:

My life partner for over 50 years, my husband Gene.

My four girls, who light up my world, a gift from the angels who along with …

My four sons-in-love: four wonderful, kind, insightful men, who guide …

My ten grandchildren, who are on the brink of making the world a more humane place.

My curiosity and all I’ve discovered on this curious journey.

My emotionality and vulnerability.

My childhood, my foundation, my family, friends and teachers who supported this extraordinary slice of my life, all the memories.

My two beautiful, creative, smart sisters, without whom I would be an only child.
