Retired live close to family. This evening is like most nights relaxing and enjoying my home and dogs, who are in every sense of the word family.

I am so grateful for everything I have survived. I am so grateful to be single not in a relationship for over 7 years, never was good at it, lord knows had my chance.

 

Listening to one of my favorites: Barbra Streisand- Relate to her on many levels.

We have the same eye shape. My Russian Grandfather looks so much like her Father, It's a tribe connection. So here I'm sitting outside enjoying solitude and music with delightful dinner and wine, my heart is filled with gratitude.

 

My prayer for you, is love, plenty of love, be it family, pets, friends, community.

@Sweet_Serenity @Nice when someone is happy with their life and it is just the simple things that make them realize how sweet it is.

You've gotta love a glass of wine with bits of cork floating in it.

It's so nice hear from someone who is happy with the life she made for herself.  You should congratulate yourself because happiness and contentment doesn't just "happen".  It's not a matter of luck.  You made the right decisions and took the right road that led you to your current state of happiness.

How lovely, @Sweet_Serenity 

It made me happy just reading about your happiness.  I can relate to much of what you wrote.
