Asterisk moment

Grateful to be able to bend down to ground level.

Asterisk moment.

Mid Life Celebration’s post today made it sound like everyone can make an endless list of things to be grateful for.

You agree with this right?

It dawned on me that there might be a chance some of us could feel this isn’t true.
