This evening I am thankful for:

--my writing buddy who voices his concern when he doesn't hear from me for a few days

--another friend who was about to come from the East Bay and knock on my door, because he hadn't heard from me

--the encouragement of my Spark friends when I am feeling low

--knowing I am not alone even though I sometimes isolate myself

--a lovely, lovely, positive dream this morning involving a deep pink rose springing up in the tall grass

--pozole for dinner

--never being out, though sometimes down

--allowing myself my tears today

--renewing my search for positive solutions to my problems

--beginning to feel more energy.

Peace and blessings,

Michelle

2. remembering picking the blackberries last fall with my son
3. having a fabulous flat computer screen so I can pile everything around it easily!!
4. the wind blowing away all the air-garbage!
5. the sound of the 2 toddlers upstairs giggling together this morning.
Have a glorious day - spring is definitely here! - Celia

On this windy Tuesday, I am thankful for

~ the local library where I can use the internet while my modem is on the fritz
~ for the so many ways I have been blessed. For the basic necessities as well as those not so basic
~ That my calls to Nairobi went through and I was able to talk to my brother and sister yesterday evening
~ a good night's sleep
~ good health, energy and stamina
~ Finding a favorite necklace that goes perfectly with these burgundy pants
~ that I have been able to live comfortably without a job for almost a year

Good morning everyone! Waving down to dear Carolyn! And SO good to see SMoon and Clair*I*T!!!

I'm deeply grateful for so much ~~

~ lovin' Michelle's writing gift and the way she captured this -- "the graces that rain on me even when I'm not paying attention"
~ ahhhhh...YES! -- "my own habits and patterns of reaction that surface to show me my untamed ego!"
~ a massage ahead this morning...I haven't had one for many moons, but I'm hoping she can help me with a persistent headache that I feel has muscular roots in the neck area
~ the pride in seeing SparkPeople in the news today (USA Today)!
~ excited about beginning Isabel Allende's classic "La Casa de los Espiritus" (House of the Spirits)

Blessed be!

I'm grateful for all the challenges and blessings this month has bestowed upon me. I'm grateful for the ability to hang in there when the going gets rough. I'm grateful for the sometimes insight that it is not always others that create obstacles, but my own habits and patterns of reaction that surface to show me my untamed ego.

After so many good weeks, I've been going through quite a bad patch--some serious concrete problems and some emotional ones, but I'm getting back on that pony called life that can ever so comfortably post, trot, and cantor--THEN, just when I'm not paying attention (the lack of mindfulness), buck me right off resulting in a hard landing.

Even though I haven't been posting, I think of all of you so often, and doing so helps me through the night.

This Monday evening I am thankful for:

--a teary but good, let-my-hair-down talk with my father's wife;

--her kind support of me in every way, even as she deals with my elderly father with Alzheimer's;

--soups in my freezer ready when I couldn't bear to cook

--things often taken for granted--shelter, food, and water

--the forgiveness always available to all

--the hope that I will reach a point when I can almost always treat myself as a beloved child.

--the graces that rain on me even when I'm not paying attention.

Peace and blessings,

Michelle

Good gorgeous Sunday morning, all! Woke up this morning feeling joyous and extremely grateful
* That the "fake it til you make it" finally kicked in. GONE is the depression, the sluggish feelings, the lack of motivation, all of those things that have kept me from "living" this past month or two...
* For finding the deep desire to rid my body of excess fat.
* For having cabbage, chard, sorrel, onion, tomato, carrot soup already made and ready for dinner
* For anticipation of spending the rest of the day with the delightful grandkids
* For a great conversation with my dad yesterday, and his amazing ability to be so flexible, despite disappointment
* For a great note received from newly found relatives after telling them that we wouldn't be meeting this weekend ater all.
* For Andrea Chenier

Grateful for my family and for my mom, who is excited at the prospect of going out with FEMA again. Grateful for silly puppy girl, who thinks life is wonderful. (and it is, isn't it?)

The end of a long week of training, and I am thankful
* That I listened to my body and my husband, and cancelled my trip to see my folks.
* For my dad's understanding when I had to call and tell him at the last minute.
* For learning that sitting all day (actually all week) is NOT a good thing for my back.
* For a quiet evening at home with my hubby with a pot of blooming tea and college basketball on TV
* For open dialogue with my supervisor and the rest of the training unit to debrief the intense week.
* For now having nothing planned this weekend, but a trip to a hot tub!

Waving down to GBoomer (isn't this technology, e.g., YouTube, mind-blowing), and good morning everyone! Today I'm deeply grateful for ~~

~ the joy of being a part of last night's amazing gathering of diverse, strong, talented women
~ finishing the IRS data gathering/compiling yesterday
~ being trained to use excellent equipment at the fitness center to strengthen the musculature surrounding my knees -- I'm going to use it some more today, as well as the "Arc," a cardio machine easy on the knees (and I'm feeling the initial 15 minutes on it this morning!)
~ the avocado-feta salsa spread I made for last night's festivities was a big hit
~ appreciating the excellent job my Maui watermelon termaline *guidance angel* has been doing since I got back from Maui Feb 1!

Blessed be!

I am grateful this morning for:

- time with L on the couch yesterday evening. Being able to encourage her to do her exercise yesterday when it looked like she wasn't going to.
- another wonderful C25K workout in the park yesterday.
- rediscovering Ziggy Stardust after MANY years.
- learning that my mother has tickets to come up for a visit early next month.
- remembering that I could use YouTube yesterday to see demonstrations of new lifting exercises that I am learning. I created playlists of the two new sequences I will be starting in a week.

On this very hectic Thursday, my gratitudes include:
1. Being able to get everything done for everybody that needed it at the same time today (whew! - just not enough of me to go around);
2. Knowing that in 3 more days, life will become much easier - light at the end of the tunnel, in other words - this too shall pass;
3. My mother doing emotionally OK after her husband receiving a diagnosis of bladder cancer;
4. The warmth and comfort of my chai tea lattes;
5. My kitty doing so well after such a recent scare - truly a blessing for me.

Have a great night everybody!

New Moon, new beginnings emoticon and Aires like me...seems auspicious indeed.

Just in from another bigger hunk of snow shoveling I think on my gratitudes:
1. Using all three of my different types of shovels to clear our driveway and sidewalks and having the energy and tools for this challenging job
2. Getting a darn good workout with this heavy wet snow
3. Plenty of moisture in this big re-appearance of Winter
4. Mother of happy customer calling with commission for a shield for her birthday, which is today. Connecting quickly with this lovely lady and hearing news of crocus in Vermont and sharing ideas for celebrations
5. Lifting the feng sui flow with more deep cleaning done with ease

HEAR! HEAR!

The Aires New Moon is tonight -- "Because Aries is the youngest of the signs, this is the New Moon for fresh starts, turning over a new leaf or starting a new phase. Aries represents the inner child; that trusting, innocent soul which lives within each of us. Even in the worst of times, and these do seem to be the worst of times, it is important to be aware of the ever-present humor that exists in the darkest moments of our lives. After all, the greatest comedy does arise from the deepest tragedies.

"I realize childlike innocence may be hard to conjure up when the global economy is in such disarray, but THIS IS THE ONLY NEW MOON OF THE YEAR WHEN WE GET TO START ALL OVER AGAIN. If this past year has left you feeling beaten down, depressed, and physically or emotionally wounded, this is the New Moon to start anew. When darkness comes into our lives, we must remember that the dawn will eventually come." www.astrowisdom.com/thisnewmoon.htm

5. Getting leaves bagged and into garage before the rain.

Have a great evening everybody!

Grateful for the chance to stay home today and rest up. VERY tired, but what a blessing to have a nice rainy morning to lie in for a bit & get healthy & restored to go back to work.

Grateful that I'm able to dispose of some of my clutter and grateful for all the many good things in my life; puppy Rosy, Annie-the-cat, family, and for living in a very beautiful place.

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

On this misty, post-storm morning, I'm counting my blessings ~~

~ a delightful travel journal entry and photos from my friends on their around-the-world adventure, now on an island off the coast of Thailand
~ with GBoomer, I marvel at "the never-ending" learning that this life grants us (hmmmm...about the "swift" part -- heh heh)
~ meet you at the pool Cindy! I'm happy to have water aerobics ahead as well (BTW -- MAJOR CONGRATS on the 2.2 lbs. loss!!!)
~ a wonderful IM connection with dear Stephanie this morning
~ the bouquet of daffodils, peach blossoms, irises and jonquils gracing my computer desk, gathered and offered to me by my housemate

Blessed be!

Spring sunshine is spotty and silver sky has been with us here for the last two days which makes me grateful for:
1. the bits of moisture, to nourish the budding trees and bushes
2. warm clothes for walks with dogs who don't seem to care what the weather is doing
3. happy harmony in the shelter of my home
4. fun cable movie dates
5. fresh beets

Today is a calm day..finally! The anxiety that I create regarding my life has exhausted me physically and mentally, and with alittle help from my friend maha (she helped me open my eyes alittle wider) I think I can just "be" for now. God has granted a huge blessing for my family and I now know that we have a home to go to...do you hear the sigh of relief? I feel like I can breath again...so, today's blessings include.....

~~rid of the anxiety
~~being able to focus on self again
~~knowing in my soul that everything is going to be ok
~~meeting wonderful people on SP
~~people that are willing to give others a chance
~~knowing that I continue to do the next right thing
~~knowing that "being clean" has made my life GROOVY!

Peace to all....Carolyn
