A Screensaver Blessing

I have a Mac. Upon my Mac, I put a tic-tac. Ok, not true, but it sounded like a nursery rhyme...more or less. No worries, I'm not going into nursery rhyming.

I have a Mac. Upon my Mac, I have many, many pictures. Upon my Mac, I have a screensaver that cycles through the last six months of those pictures. Upon my Mac, I have a screensaver that reminds me how blessed I am.

Some pictures scroll across the screen and I smile; others remind me of moments semi-forgotten; still others tug a little at my heart strings.

There are so many things I've gotten to do, and so few I've had to!
