Gratitude Jazz

It seems that I end up taking the weekend off from my gratitude reflections so I can work on the Sunday sermon....so, now I return to reflection on "J". But first I also want to point out that there are three others I know of who are participating in the alphabet meme: Alter Ego; Deb; and HotCup.

Ok, now for the "J's"....

Jazz. I love Jazz. Curiously I had almost no jazz on my iPod (the one I HAD before I dropped it on an airplane)...but I do love Jazz. It's fun to listen to at a club, it's fun to dance too, it's perfect music to get sappy with...I especially love the vibes - maybe I'll remember that when I get to the "V'S"....

Jewelry: I don't have a lot, but I love the pearl necklace I found in a resale shop and wore on my wedding day. I have often wondered if they are real...And now in the SW I am accumulating some very nice turquoise. Oh, the choices, if I had big bucks to spend. Then, next year for our 25 wedding anniversary I want to change up my wedding band and engagement ring. I'm thinking of having the original sapphire and diamonds re-set in a slightly different pattern and in platinum instead of yellow gold.

J - my daughter. She is such a wonderful person - strong, smart, beautiful, self-determined.
