Day 2002: What gives you a lift?

In times like these,  it’s important to ask the question “What gives you a lift?”

What gives me a lift includes a visit to Chicago,

embracing that it’s my time to fly, and most of all, coming home.

My friend Dave guarantees that watching this will give me a lift:

 

It did!  I’m sure your comments will give me a lift, too.

Gratitude, as always, gives me a lift. Thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.

  1. You certainly want me to lift myself up and someday visit the Windy City, Ann.

    • Chicago will definitely give you a lift, Mark, and thanks for all the lifts you’ve given me over the years.

  2. Positive comments

  3. Beautiful photography!

  4. Sunshine. At last we’re getting a proper summer here in Wales, and I couldn’t be more grateful. 🙂

  5. I’m short because I’m afraid of heights so I like to keep my feet on the ground even when my head is in the clouds, but I find that talking to someone who’s on my level can be a real pick me up as long as things stay on an even keel.

  6. A trip back to Penny Lane is always an upper.

  7. Sunshine and being near water do it for me Ann. 💛 We are talking about finding some place like that within the next few years.

    • I’m so glad you’ll be getting those wonderful lifts, Val! Thanks for lifting us up over the years with your uplifting blog.

  8. Elevators give me a lift
    Escalators give me a lift
    Life gives me a lift
    Just saying

  9. For some reason I got very emotional (in a good way) with Sir Paul’s show.

  10. Your blog always give me a lift, Ann! I make a point to read it when I can, and to like it when I do, and to leave a comment when time permits. So if I was here, I loved it! I am very busy now that we are preparing our house for sale up north, and also cooking 3 ketogenic meals daily for my DH who’s doing the ReCODE plan., and working 3 mornings a week. 😳 I hope you’ve enjoyed Chi Town as much as I enjoyed your photos!

    • Your comments always give me a lift, Sunny. Thanks for taking the time while you’re so busy. And Chicago is wonderfully uplifting.

  11. My daughter sent me the Paul McCartney Carpool Karaoke link the other day and I loved it! It gave me a lift, too. Your trip to Chicago has certainly offered many of the sights and experiences that I would also enjoy, and a trip to Edinburgh, where my grandmother was born, would be a thrill! I’m energized just thinking about all these uplifting thoughts. 🙂

  12. Beautiful blog!
