Dear, dear friends,
Today is the 207th day of 2012. I am grateful for 207,000,000 things. First, my brilliant, loving husband. My compassionate gifted daughter. The extended Bradford family. My niece Laura, Christopher and Nicholas and the Sunday afternoons spent at Good Harbor Beach — always working to master the best sand castle with our 800 pounds of beach hernalia. I am grateful that Christopher cleaned up every cigarette butt in the southern part of Cape Cod.
I am grateful to Dr. Johnson and the Brigham & Women’s neurosurgical team for their precision and attention to detail — but I am most grateful to each and every one of you.
To Ed Crane, a gifted and talented artist and the opportunity to live in a beautiful home to exhibit his wonderful work.
I also want to show gratitude for a 40 year friendship with a gifted photographer, Mary Lou Christiansen. Her photographs are the essence of a morning opening up. I couldn’t be surrounded by anything more beautiful.
Mostly my mother-in-law for her intricate drawings of my daughter. For her willingness to hold her paintbrush for hours in order to display all the intricacies of my daughter’s beauty.
One final note: I am grateful that the MBTA has allocated $75,000,000 for new express busses so we don’t have to ride along the Mass Pike and pretend that we’re surfing at 80 miles per hour.
