I'm feeling so much better, sometimes all I have to do to put things into perspective is to ask myself, 'Al, what are you grateful for?'

I'm grateful for the boat loads of love in my life.
I'm grateful for my little shop of flowers.

I'm grateful for friends who show me unconditional love even though I haven't been there for all the triumphs in their lives lately.
I'm grateful for sunshine and even for the rain as it encourages more springtime bloomage.

I'm grateful for grapefruit.
I'm grateful for our littlest doodle, Harry Hogan.

I'm grateful for this magnificent fellow beside me, he's one amazing human to have by your side.
And I'm grateful for you dear reader, it's really rewarding writing my little blog.

I've just discovered your website and blog, thanks to Sue at Second Bloom - I just picked up some furniture from her for a new little shop of my own in Hamilton. Your flowers are really beautiful, and the perfect way to cheer up in this icky weather! Next time I'm in the city I'll come by to visit & shop - I used to live just around the corner in Roncey. Ahhh, the nostalgia...
