My husband and I took a drive up a mountain to watch the northern lights. There were no northern lights, but we had a hellva good time watching the stars and visiting for two hours on the mountain top. I am so thankful that 25 years later we still sit and visit. The next evening we went bowhunting and although we didn't see any deer we had a good time.
Tonight a friend invited me over to pick grapes. We enjoyed a glass of wine, and had a wonderful visit. She is a great person and I've always enjoyed our conversations. This summer she went to Greece and it was fun discussing the difference between American and European cultures. We also shared our gardening woes.
I drove home, top and doors off of my Jeep, and counted my blessings. I didn't finish any huge projects this three day weekend. I didn't go on any big trips. I enjoyed my time and the people around me. Life is short and time is precious. I am thankful for the people in it. I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend and shared it with friends and family.
