Tonight, I am grateful for the following:

1. My strong, thick legs, because they carry me where I need to go.
2. My round tummy, because it carried a son.
3. Those strands of gray hair that are starting to poke through, because it's evidence I've been here, there, and everywhere...even if just for a while.
4. Those laugh lines, because it means I've smiled more than frowned.
5. Those freckles, because it means I've spent some time in the sunshine.
6. Those scars, because it means I've been hurt a few times, but I'm still okay.

That's all I've got. :-)

Grateful for health. I had skin checked for some unusual growths and they were removed and are considered both benign and not "pre-cancerous" either. Health is such a gift.

So grateful I have a deep-tissue massage scheduled this afternoon. Before then, I will ride the exercise bike, do my upper body strength training, and dance. After massage, I'll have a nice walk with my adorable pup and my beautiful wife.

I am grateful for farmer's markets, organic food, all the kale I can get before the summer season ends, more organic cilantro and parsley, the knowledge that this heat wave will break mid week, the joy that I will get a chance to breathe ocean air sometime in the future. I am grateful for A/C when it is hot and gritty outside and grateful that I will soon be making and drinking a carrot-ginger-kale juice.

Grateful to start my day with an hour of Pilates, helps me feel strong and healthy and alive. Will do push ups and dance and ride the bike before running errands, then we will walk around sunset and maybe do a little stretching to start the weekend off right.
