I am grateful for a good glass of wine and the harvest of wine grapes.  Living in a community that is surrounded by at least 50 wineries, it is nice to walk outside and smell the “Crush”.  It also means that Halloween is just around the corner, which means that the Christmas decorations will be out in the stores in just a few weeks.  People are generally nicer during the holiday season; they don’t want any sticks or coal come Christmas morning.

Right now, we could use a whole lot more of Christmas.  What I am hearing in the media….there is going to be a whole lot of coal distributed to people this year.

I am grateful that I am happy with my life and really do not care what others think about me.
