I missed posting yesterday but had a pretty good reason. My granddaughter and her husband traveled to the Twin Cities from their home on the other side of the state for a Vikings football game at the Metrodome.
Their three little girls stayed with me while they were gone. What would have been a boring Sunday turned into a whirlwind of activity. They only stayed until the game was over but it's always a treat to see the family.
However, I've posted before about my thankfulness for family so I have to choose two other things I'm thankful for. The first is I am grateful that I live in Minnesota--not to brag, but Minnesota is consistently at the top of polls rating states for health, happiness, etc. We always are the state with the highest voter turnout at elections. And, just last Tuesday, Minnesota ranked highest in contributions for the "Give to the Max Day".
I am ever-so-thankful that I live in the USA with separation of church and state. Neither the federal nor state governments can dictate what I can wear, or what I must eat, or where I can go --or who with. Well, the list would go on and on! I just love my freedom to be me.
