  • We have all kinds of luxuries that we take for granted. It could be our health, our time, the extra money in our wallet to indulge in some fripperies we don't need or even the people who love us.

    My niece never fails to draw me with a mythical husband (I haven't got a real one yet) who is smaller than me. My nephew is fond of gumming my shoulder when I burp him. It tickles.

    I hope that I never take these darlings for granted.
