I am grateful for the comforting touch of friends which my soul especially feels on melancholy days. I am grateful for friends who've shared theirs with me ~ anything: time, a drink, the experience of watching a sunset together on a beautiful, clear Sunday evening. I am grateful for the beauty of the brooding mountains, the sparkling ocean and of the beautiful aroma of flowers. I am grateful for my mother, who turned 78 yesterday. And for my father, who recently turned 73.
