If there is one thing that I have learned, it is that life is what you make of it.  How many times has someone older than you told you that?  It is true.  Life is just a state of mind.  Our physical bodies take us through it, but our mind and thoughts create it.  So today I am grateful for all of the fun places that I have been, lived and experienced.  All of the friends and a family members who I have and continue to interact with.  I have been truly blessed and each day is just another added blessing.

I have lived right on the beach in Southern California, in a great small town at the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains, the Hayward hills where I was able to see three of the five bridges that cross the SF Bay and now on a vineyard in the beautiful Livermore Valley.

I have a wonderful family and I have been blessed by knowing so much love in my life.  I continue to look forward to the next day, knowing that life is only getting better.  How do I know this?  Because my mind tells me so….
