Good morning Mintdom!

What an evening I had last night!  My niece is in town from California and yesterday, my sister asked me to come over for dinner.  I told her that I could not because I had my class so she said – I’ll bring dinner over then.  I left my door unlocked and told them to come and make themselves at home.  I also invited my other sister to come if she could.  She said, “I will try”  Jeepers – they are such actresses!  So when I got home, I saw their cars, pulled into the garage, but when I reached the door, it was locked. Just as I was about to get my key, the door flung open.  As I stepped through I saw my niece, nephew, his girlfriend, my sisters and what I thought was my sister’s little puppy.  I said, “Brandy, you are getting so big.”  At the same time, I was thinking,  that Brandy sure changed colors and had gotten so white.  It all happened so quickly!  Everyone was laughing and they were putting phones up near me and I realized that this was not Brandy!  Next I noticed that she was wearing a little sign.  The sign said.  I need a name and a home and at the bottom love The Mini Mint! 

I cannot begin to express my gratitude for all this. During this big surprise, my brother-in-law (from work) was on one phone , and my parents (from MN) were on another phone, listening to my obvious screams of delight!   Of course I called my daughters soon afterwards. As disappointed I was at the loss of the little 10 month old dog, is replaced with this sweet little addition and mainly the love of my family.  What amazing sisters and family that I have! 

Here is the newest addition to Mintdom – The Mini Mint (Minty)

 Here she is this morning – still sleepy.  Is that not the cutest blanket?  My sister made it for her!

 Well, we made it through the first night – I am sort of taking the day off today from work to do some Minty bonding.  This quote sums up the feelings that I have that I find impossible to express.  My gratitude is SO deep. 

“Gratitude is one of the least articulate of the emotions, especially when it is deep.” –Felix Frankfurter

AffirMINTion: I have a grateful heart!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!
