I just grabbed this one, too. It makes me happy.

I love that look. Sheer joy.

It's the way I feel everyday. When you get to be a certain age with infirmities, each day is a gift.

#1 item on my bucket list is to wake up and smell the roses one more time.

Damn, I hate getting old(52). I get misty-eyed at the damn-dest things lately. I think I am finally fleeing the passions and distractions of youth and seeing things differently...wish it had been sooner.
