My appreciations this morning include:
-Recognizing that I had shifted to regrettable mood so putting on light clothes for hot day and heading out to walk it all out and successfully restoring balance and agreeable place of peace
-Dear Mojo sharing the nearly hour and a half trek with loyalty and endurance
-Finding new sculptures added to sculpture garden offerings, including new gongs where I rang them all to commemorate the years since C was born as it was his birthday
-Taking in the blue sky and clear long views
-Coming home to lovely cool home, cooling down then being able to join in harmony, the more than a dozen people gathered in our backyard in happy reunion and quality conversations
-Gathering some garden veggies (pictured above) to be made from lunch
-News of new sales and welcome request for more inventory

On this first day of September, I'm grateful for:

-Always, Rebecca, for getting us into yet another new beginning of this amazing practice
-Package received from Beth's brother yesterday, what an amazing gift in answer to my meditations at the labyrinth
-Being taken back in time as I listened to a Baltimore DJ interview Beth and hearing her sing three songs live (interview was about a year before I met her)
-An extra, unexpected CD, a recording of a live jam in our living room after a house concert we put on with our Aussie friends; it includes all of them (no longer together), as well as Beth and other friends who've passed on
-An incredible start to a difficult month and relearning that you can still enjoy life whilst in the midst of difficulties
-A long, holiday weekend with extra R&R time
-Heading to a coffeehouse shortly to play my favorite word game with a friend

"Gratitude and attitude are not challenges; they are choices." Robert Braathe

I appreciate every person who contributes and shares on this thread. As always please share 5 things you are grateful for, appreciate or are working for you. The daily gifts!

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

Denis Waitley
Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favorite food, or the sound of a loved one's voice.

Joseph B. Wirthlin
