My Gray Stripes

Becoming whole through family life. Desserts help.

My gratitude list! “Ability is the art of getting credit for all the home runs somebody else hits.”

Thank you from the bottom of my heart…

Dave, for being my best friend and for loving me more than 25 years. No one better or more handsome.

Devin Kate, for showing me what is most important, on the day of your birth and today.

Aiden, for being clear, non-reactive, and fun. Way to play, Babe.

Ian, for being my second pea in the pod. We “get” each other, through thick and thin.

JP, for being the sunshine on my cloudy days. Love you more than the world.

Mom and Dad, for bringing me into the world and being committed to each other.

Bro and Sis, for being my longest life relationships. As Barry Manilow sings, looks like we’ve made it.

Grandma Lil, for smiling and dancing for more than 94 years.  “It works for me.”

Liz, for being the hub of all friends West Side.

Katy, Marie, Diane, Julie, Pam, Joalyce, Joetta, Margaret, and Mary for the privilege of partying with you and your families.

4Real, members past and present, for supporting a loving and faithful family lifestyle. Janette, Mary, Jen, Stef, Jenn, Suzanne, Jodie, Lindsay, Nancy P, Nancy G, Melinda and Erin, are ladies beyond compare while Tim makes it run.

Twitter friends, too numerous to name, for inspiring me anew.

Casey Stengel, for the quote used as the title of this page, and Major League Baseball, the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the whole baseball loving family for cheering with me.

Fellow Americans, for valuing life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You are my shining city on the hill.

Catholic Church and Mother Mary full of grace for encouraging me to love universally.

God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
