Thank you, God, for these things which begin with U:
my uncles (Gene, Jimmy, Frank, Lon, Guy, and Hal)
my great-uncles (Cleo and Ward- There are two others but one went missing after WWII on the trip home and I never met the other one.)
Umbrellas, especially huge ones that keep me from getting soaked while also protecting my backpack full of teaching materials.
For V, I am grateful, in particular, for:
vaccines (esp. for small pox -which is gone- and polio- which effected so many),
vehicles- so we can go more places than we can walk
vacuum cleaners, especially when my husband is using it (SEXY!).
Valentines… I remember those white boxes from elementary school
my cousin Valerie
vegetarians (like my sons)
vegetarian lettuce wraps at PFChangs
I am blessed with Ws in my life, such as:
Whiskers on kittens…
being a wife
