Sharing thanks for long summer days!

Sunset at Home Depot
The summer solstice is approaching. Only 2 more days until the longest day of the year. Today was a top ten day on Long Island. Beautiful sunshine, cool breezes and still light out at 8:00 pm. I took this picture outside of Home Depot tonight. Here is what I was thankful for.
  1. I am thankful for Monesha, who was my daughter's personal fashion consultant today. Mo helped Liz pick out some nice outfits for her acting competition! Mo has so much style!
  2. I was thankful for having lunch with my friend Sejal to celebrate her birthday. We went to the Cheesecake Factory and had the awesome Chicken Chipotle Pasta. It was delicious and I decided to not look at the calorie count, and just enjoy the wonderful flavors and conversation.
  3. I am thankful for the beautiful day and pretty sunset I saw from the Home Depot parking lot. I enjoy cloud and sky watching. I love finding some beauty even if its in a parking lot.
  4. I was thankful for having a nice conversation with my older daughter Becky while I was taking her to work. It is nice to be able to spend some quality alone time with her. Sometimes errands can pay dividends.
Thanks to all the readers who wrote such beautiful posts about their dads yesterday. I invite you to share something you are thankful for today in the comments!


  1. That's very true about errands, and what a lovely idea for a blog!

    Today I am grateful that the sun is shining and I have dinner with friends at a French restaurant tonight. I love French food! :)
