If you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you always got. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. (Albert Einstein)

My best friend lives 28 hours away. I just got to speak to her for nearly an hour! Thank you God!

I am so thankful for this site and the community. I'm thankful for the Internet and for all the information I can find there, and being able to connect with people everywhere.

I'm thankful for the lovely weather and for being able to go to the track and walk on lovely rubberized surface.

I'm thankful for my family, my home and my job.

Thanks for having me. Hollie

For many folks, a conclusion is simply the place where they got tired of thinking.

At the top of my voice I am shouting, "I am I!
And I may not know why. But I know that I like it! Three cheers! I am I, I am I, I am I!!!!!"

And I am grateful, too, I am, I am, for you and you and YOU!!!!!

Also
* For a quiet day spent with hubby
* His "practicing" on the Weber, and the wonderful meal we shared for dinner.
* My sister dropping by, bringing a gift (a silly cherub that was on my folks patio for years...she rescued it) that really touched me
* For running into an old friend unexpectedly
* For one of our new neighbors who is on his personal "beautification" project in our apartment complex. He's trimmed dead wood of many of the large trees, planted a Japanese maple, and is putting flowers in pots right near my parking spot.

Rebecca, sounds like a wisteria! They bloom in April in CA...feathery leaves?

Grateful for : birthdays, which are great days to be happy that you're alive, and to celebrate that life. Happy birthday Kathy!

Grateful for another beautiful day, for silly puppy dog (took her tracking & she always makes me laugh. She's so happy about tracking & galloping around), and for cake at the museum's anniversary party.

And grateful for life in general, come what may.

Dearest Kathy,

If you didn't have birthdays, you wouldn't be you.
If you'd never been born, what would you do?
If you'd never been born, what would you be?
You might be a fish or a toad in a tree.
You might be a doorknob or three baked potatoes.
You might be a bag full of hard green tomatoes.
But worse than all that: you might be a Wasn't!
A Wasn't has no fun at all. No she doesn't! A Wasn't just isn't. She just isn't present.
But hey! You are you! And isn't that pleasant?
So we'll go to the top of the tallest blue space.
The official SPARK PEOPLE sounding off place.
Go on: Open your mouth and roar loud at the sky!
Roar loud at the top of your voice:
I am I!
I am I!
And I may not know why. But I know that I like it!
Three cheers! I am I, I am I, I am I!!!!!
Today is your birthday, that's truer than true.
There's no one on earth who is youer than you!
Shout loud: I am lucky to be what I am!
Thank goodness I'm not just a ham or a clam
or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam.
I am what I am and that's a great thing, yes m'am!

Dr Suess and your SparkFriends!

As my birthday is winding down, I express abundant gratitude
* For (after a restless night of sleep and waking feeling old and depressed) being able to greet the day with joy by singing aloud "Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me..." all the way to work!
* For several surprise phone calls from friends and family
* For having the courage and humility to submit my application to return to my old job, but under a different supervisor
* For having my former co-workers warmly greet me, and realizing how very much I miss them.
* For a quiet, romantic dinner with hubby
* For my son's incredible work ethic and how he is beginning to reap the rewards of all his hard work and sacrifice.

On this Friday evening, my gratitudes include all of this, and so much more:
1. Smoke-free bowling allies (relatively new to us in Kansas City);
2. Using a lighter ball and bowling with no back pain;
3. My sweetie bowling with no pain!!!!! (at least for now);
4. My life returning to normal with a 6-month break from school - reading non-business-related books, going bowling - wow - these are firsts for like two years!!!!!;
5. Massages, manicures, pedicures - all hedonistic luxuries - but very, very appreciated.

Have a wonderful sleep everybody (for Snogum, a nice morning!).

Grateful for two good doctors appointments & for pleasant medical staff (such a nice thing to have in your life!) and for the day off. Working a compressed work schedule is so worth it.

Grateful for a healthy & happy puppy girl, who loves being outside & is now chasing squirrels & birds. Such a great joy in my life.

And grateful for family, as always.

On this lovely evening I gratefully acknowledge my abundance of blessings and give thanks to the Creator for:

family and friends,
finding a CSA-looking forward to 16 weeks of homegrown produce,
cooler temperatures keeping us comfortable until the A/C is repaired,
memories of my Mom stirred by AT's touching piece,
time taken to write my dear Aunt-Mom's sister,
nice walk and good conversation with DH tonight,
finding the $20 bill I thought was lost.

Peace, blessings and love to each of you special people.

Welcome Holly, and other new members!!

I seem to be on a positive productive period, and I've already done one brisk walk today - more this evening.

Today I am truly grateful for:
1. money in my bank account
2. my elderly cat purring after eating her food
3. the noisy chickadees in the hedge
4. the smell of fresh-ground coffee in my new coffee bean grinder (a b'day present!)
5. a place in the sun to read my books

Have a wonderful day everyone - Cheers, Celia

Today is my dear mother's birthday....and in her honor, I express gratitude
* For all the times we have laughed together
* For bed parties and doo-doo burps
* For our emotional and psychic connection (I used to urges to call her in the wee hours of the morning, and when I followed through, she'd say, "What are you doing up so late?" and then we'd laugh, because she'd been up too, thinking about phoning me!)
* For teaching me things like "It is just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as it is a poor man" "It's alot more fun to flirt than to sit in a corner" "If you go to bed as Princess no-wrinkle, you will find the man of your dreams..." (None of those things ever worked!)
* For her creative spirit
* For knowing that all she really wanted was the best for people.
* For the pain and loss she has suffered over the years...including now, her cognition and her ability to care for herself
* For my dad, who lovingly tends to her needs, even at age 87
* For a good day care, that provides her with structure and him with respite
* For the gift of still having her on the planet, after all these years....

I just joined this group this morning.

For the first time ever, I got 5 points for signing in!

I'm thankful for so many things. I'm thankful for my daughter and my boyfriend. I'm thankful for my work, and for the people I work for. I'm thankful for my home and that even if times get really bad, I still have a safe place to live and never go hungry. I'm thankful for my health.

I'm thankful for this community and am really glad that this ThanksGiving group exists.

Thanks for having me. Have a great day.

Hollie

For many folks, a conclusion is simply the place where they got tired of thinking.
