I usually like to post these at the end of the week, but what the heck, let's start the week off with some gratitude.
This week I'm thankful for...
|warm nights, cold drinks|
|lunches in the backyard with the birds|
|one of my favorite maneuvers, the tailslide, and the fact that this bird is totally unimpressed|
|sunset sessions after work with this guy, my favorite guy|
I'm thankful for the American spirit this week, too. When we were driving across the country last summer I kept trying to identify what that was, what it meant, but I never really came to any conclusions. The other day when we were sitting around my parent's house in the evening talking about the Boston tragedy, my mom said "I love how America never gives up. The Boston Marathon will be back next year and probably bigger than ever, runners are already running marathons all across the country, we built the Freedom Towers after 9/11, we remember, but we get back up and we keep going." The human spirit is a pretty neat thing.
