Thank you for Today !

Another day in which I am grateful to be alive, happy to have good friends.
Grateful for my family, for the wind that messes up my hair, for my health, for a job, for food to eat.
Sometimes we do not know how lucky we really are. It is important for us to stop and be grateful, for everything.
 For your senses, for being able to take care of yourself, for having someone by your side when you are sick.
Be thankful for an education, for being able to save a little at the end of the month, to be able to treat yourself and others because of the produce of your work.
Today I wore:
- Brown velvet dress Isaac Mizrahi for Target
- Brown wedges Coach
- Yellow patent tote Liz Claiborne
- Owl ring F21
- Vintage flower brooch* 
- Pearl and gold tone headband
*This vintage brooch is silver and gold plated. My grandmother gave it to me, it was given to her by a friend of hers who later grew up to be President. 
She says she and her twin sister received two brooches as a gift and that she was probably 15 or 16 years old. So, I am guessing this is probably 60-65 years old.
So to wrap this post up... stop look around and be thankful for all that you have been granted. 
I know, that sometimes we feel so beat up but we have been given so many things and opportunities, others can only dream of.

Thank you for the wonderful sentiment. I often feel so lucky for everything I have and wonder what have I done to deserve my good fortune. Thanks for your blog, love the dress and shoes.
