Have I mentioned lately just how grateful I am?

well, i am... a lot... hugely...

i just spent the better part of an hour, smoking a havana stogie, sitting in the sun on the rooftop terrace of the guesthouse here in kabul... (friday is our one-day weekend...) i gazed out over the city, took in the breathtaking snow-shrouded mountains that surround the city on three sides, watched the birds wheel and dive in a mostly cloudless sky, and reflected on just how incredibly fortunate i am to live the kind of life i live...

i am amazingly blessed to be here in afghanistan, working with some wonderful afghan friends and colleagues, getting to see a major world event up close and personal... i am amazingly blessed to be able to live part-time in buenos aires, a beautiful city in a beautiful country, populated by wonderful people... i am amazingly blessed to have three terrific children and two wonderful grandsons... i am amazingly blessed to have outstanding professional colleagues and dear, dear friends... i could go on and on but, suffice to say, i have many more blessings than i can count...

just thought i'd share...
