Today I am grateful for the oopsie recipes. I use them all the time
I am grateful for being on a low/carb low/cal cycling plan which means I kind of get the best of both worlds
I am grateful for walking this morning and now for sunny skies and waving trees from my window
Grateful for food today, I have really enjoyed it. Working on mindfulness
Actually grateful for food every day. I sure do love to eat - and to have found Spark and be able to maintain is a great blessing

I am grateful for the feelings that are currently within
I am grateful for a person who I was listening to the other night who spoke of the ecstasy of
being with The One. Nothing happening to give Him this feeling. Just having the feeling for no reason at all. How wonderful that must be
I am grateful there are those who point to the way for each of us - to wherever we are drawn
I am grateful for roast pork which smells so yummy and the sauce I made to go with it
I am grateful for realising it is more important to discover who I like, rather than wanting to be liked.

Meditated with Jon KZ Choiceless Awareness - a favourite
Rang Vodaphone and remained calm - a blessing in itself

This morning, I am grateful for "different dreams" of late. Very different
I am grateful for having checked them out with a dr/meditation person who assures me they are all very positive
I am also grateful that he suggests not trying to interpret them, that in fact they are in motion currently in my life - it is presumably only the conscious mind that wants to understand
I am grateful for this because dream interpretation is something I have done for years - and these are so different I could find nothing on line even about their significance, let alone understanding the symbols myself.
I am grateful for feeling the way I feel today

I'm grateful for a day to recoup and get back on track after a wonderful and busy weekend.

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Kali, all sounds good girl.

Your final gratitude is making me smile. All kinds of thoughts running through my naughty little head.
Are we talking flower beds? And preening them. I love your language.



Today I am grateful for "preening" a few weeds myself this morning - the clover seems to think its spring again and is going in for a second flowering
The new amazing gardener is actually going to come back in a couple of weeks and do some heavy weed digging..... so grateful
Loving the scrambled eggs with cheese I just ate slowly and mindfully
Grateful for chatting with friends as always
Grateful to have kind and caring friends to chat to.

Grateful for seeing myself in the mirror today and smiling and liking myself - a long time work in progress. :)
Grateful for one grand daughter walking away unhurt from a car accident in which the car was a right off. As far as I know there were no casualties.
Grateful for my new gardener, I had almost given up hope of getting anyone who knew what they were doing. I had to book him 2 months in advance - yesterday he came. Excellent. And we got on great, so he says he will fit me in. He and his brother are way booked out. He was saying people are finding it hard these days to get anyone. I can sure agree with that.
Grateful for getting the trees pruned for the winter months. Shouldn't be much growth now till spring.
Grateful that decaf coffee is now so good, you can hardly tell it from the real thing. :)

Grateful for this morning for getting the early morning dailies accomplished
Grateful for warm weather still lingering on well into Autumn. It will be winter in 5 weeks
Grateful for sharing and laughter with friends
Grateful I no longer have to go to work - I love retirement
Grateful for a week of eating slowly and mindfully - what a change - I actually feel full now before I finish and have been able to stop and leave food on the plate.
Have tried this before, but the urge to go back to old quick eating while doing something else has got me in the past. This time I am doing the mindfulness one day at a time and recording it on my eating team.
Grateful that writing things down and committing it to others always seems to help me.

I am grateful for feelings of peace and contentment
I am grateful for finally getting it through my head - that resistance is the problem
and acceptance is the solution

I am profoundly grateful for all of God's blessings.

When I first moved into this cramped apartment, I complained vigorously! But after losing my balance several times and crashing into the laundry machines or furniture, I am very grateful that it IS cramped! This happens when I get into a hurry to do something.

Note to Self: SLOW DOWN! And sign up for that class at the Senior Center, "Fit & Fall Proof."

I am profoundly grateful for all of God's blessings, and especially for sleeping better. The sleep mode in my Fitbit caused concern when I viewed the daily reports--there was no improvement after all the sleep hygiene I tried, so I stopped wearing it night before last and this morning deleted that program completely from the dashboard. I am not focusing on getting sleep, I just go to bed, listen to the thunderstorm CD, turn the TV timer on and drift off. I feel good. emoticon

Hi there Roberta, happy to meet you.

Well today I am grateful for marmite on whole grain toast for breakfast
I am grateful for sweet banana on whole grain bread for lunch
I am grateful because I ate it all mindfully and slowly and loved every mouthful
I am grateful that I did nothing else while I ate except stayed in the present momet and watch the trees swaying gently in the breeze.
I am grateful because this just seemed to happen, a gift and so unlike my usual eating.
I am grateful like you Roberta that perhaps I am actually beginning to care what I put in my head.... never high on my list of priorities, except to maintain my weight so that I do not go back to being the weight I was when I joined.

Blessings to all.

I had to share a moment of joy with you: I am thrilled beyond words! The Volvic mineral water is working! For years acupuncture points on my legs along the Liver Meridian, have been painfully sore! Just now I was touching the acupuncture points along the meridian, and there was no pain! The liver is clear of the toxic aluminum in that Whooping cough vaccine! After eleven weeks of drinking that mineral water, the silica in it has leached out the toxins! You have no idea how special this is. Hugs, Roberta

hAHA. Breakfast, this side of the world. emoticon

Today I am grateful for blue skies, warm sunshine and fantails
I am grateful for meditation, and some tapes I listened to yesterday
I am grateful for the fact that there are many people further along each path to help
I am grateful for all the changes that are happening within
I am grateful for coming to the place where I now am

It is strange that in hindsight I could not see what is now so obvious. I guess that is
what everyone must think when they gain some new understanding. It seems so simple, the words are no different to those I have known and understood in my head for years, and yet I am so grateful that at some point suddenly words becomes real and seem so clear and obvious. Reminds me of that bit in the christian bible which speaks of being blind and then seeing something new.

I am grateful today that whatever else my life is - boring is not on the list
I am grateful I got out to do some weed spraying on a lovely dry sunny day
I am grateful the gardener is coming next week to do the pre winter garden clean up and pruning of the all the big trees. Hope I have given him enough time. He was very busy - time of the year really - so we said 2 hours. At least he can chain saw and I may be able to do the picking up as he is coming on his own.
I am grateful for srambled eggs with tea for brekky
And just gratef for chicken in a delicious sauce (says she modestly) for lunch.

I am grateful today for expressing my anger to a person in a way which was not angry but clear and real
I am grateful that today our relationship seems to be on a new and for me better level
I am grateful to discover that allowing people to walk all over me is not healthy for me
I am grateful to discover the only things that really bring me joy and peace
I am grateful that today although I cannot see where the path is leading, I realise that
I am actually on it. On my path. Not on some pre-determined path by someone else,
but on my path.
