Tonight I am grateful for...

~ Taking it easy most of the day

~ Our daughter feeling better before returning to school

~ Doing Leslie Sansone's 4 mile video for a change of pace, but having one heck of a time getting & keeping my heart rate up. I realized just how far I have come. That video used to feel like running a marathon to me! On the plus side, Leslie's videos will be a nice "go to" after my surgery for a while.

Thankful for some raindrops. It's raining. We only get rain when it's so so so hot that the clouds can't stand it anymore and start crying their eyes out!

Tonight's Attitude of Gratitude ....

~ My team who worked so hard to reach their goals but came up a little short today ... sort of like the US hockey team ... nice analogy

~ For all of you who responded to my request for hugs and prayers as I have been struggling with home issues the last few days

~ For me, deciding the best thing to do today was head to the library, get organized and write my feelings down

~ For tears of healing as well as reconciliation although it will take a little more time to restore
harmony

~ For all the tools available at my disposal

~ For the strong, vibrant, deep feeling woman I am ... I really love me just the way I am :)

Today, may I make good decisions that create positive outcomes and may I have wonderful, loving people in my life to share this awesome journey with.

Good Morning, my dear friends. Sunday's gratitudes include
* Two consecutive great night sleeps
* Awakening to the sounds of birds and a sunshiney morning, the break between storms
* That the beautiful islands of Hawaii were not hit by the anticipate disasterous tsunami
* For enforcement of building codes (even tho we may balk at them from time to time...)
* For being able to laugh at myself
* For forcing myself to take baby steps, one at a time, when really all I want to do is to go to sleep and wake up about 20 years ago.

~ for the community of exceptional souls I've been meeting with for over 5 years around these teachings
~ for the opportunity to grow into my *garment*
~ for Sandra's intellectual curiosity, which grows into soul wonder and wisdom
~ for the extraordinary teachings offered through the Meeting of Shams and Rumi

* for new garden bed taking shape
* for sunshine in tomorrow's forecast

On this late Saturday night, a few of my gratitudes:

- Hope, as I think about our little boy that we sponsor in Chile, Roberto, and his family
- Prayers (please say one for the people of Chile who were just hit with a 8.8 earthquake)
- Organizations such as CFCA who help children, elderly and families in other countries that need assistance
- Family (as I know that Roberto is the youngest in a large family and is with those who love him)
- Love, and I'm sending all I can muster of it to Chile right now

Goodnight all -

Stephanie

Tonight's Attitude of Gratitude ...

~ Right and left shoes ... wow

~ Getting up and getting my workout done EARLY before the day took over

~ Fantastic, busy day at work and watching my teams perform as they push toward their goal tomorrow

~ Staying calm even when everyone else wasn't

~ Friendly, loyal customers who genuinely enjoy our offerings

~ Coming home to a nice warm fire courtesy of G-man

~ Deciding that a glass of wine, some cheese and olives were just what we wanted for dinner

~ Laughter in many places appreciated and enjoyed

~ G-man getting back his wonderful self after a few days of being a bear with a sore bum ... hmmm ... could it be the job?

Wow. I am REALLY thankful for the guy who invented right and left shoes... It was prolly a woman, come to think of it...

Good grief...

I am further thankful for a day with sun, daylight that lasted until the doggers got a mile and a quarter walk and Parker was SO GOOD...

He really is a great dog... he just needs so much more exercise than I can give him...

I WILL Be thankful for the person who has a Parker shaped hole in their home and lets me know about it...

Today I am grateful...

* For music
* For dance
* For beautiful snow
* For wood to warm me
* For yoga, which changes minds (maybe more importantly) as well as bodies.

Be well.

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. - A. DeMille

No matter what you’re feeling, the only way to get a difficult feeling to go away is simply to love yourself for it. If you think you’re stupid, then love yourself for feeling that way. It’s a paradox, but it works. To heal, you must be the first one to shine the light of compassion on any areas within you that you feel are unacceptab

Creativeness often consists of merely turning up what is already there. Did you know that right and left shoes were thought up only a little more than a century ago?

~ the fascination of pondering creativity in its many facets

Tonight

~ I am thankful for getting through this week without having to twist anyone's head off including my own.

It was looking a little shaky there for a while, but I was able to reel in the head-twisting demons...

~ I am thankful for 2 days of rest to get it together to have at it again...

~ I am thankful for all of YOU!

This evening I give thanks for:

my new friend LI joining Thich Nhat Hanh....and others

taking my dear friend and writing buddy, a retired Episcopal priest, for a birthday lunch to celebrate his seventy-ninth

all his wisdom and honesty and his willingness to question the church's hierarchy, thus making my partaking of the feast truly meaningful for me

open-faced smoked salmon sandwiches on whole-meal bread with creme fraiche, shallot, and chive, accompanied by a salad of baby greens

safely driving through a major storm to and from lunch

Friday--just the best day

how lucky I am to know true love and true friendship.

Peace and blessings to all,

Michelle

On this Thursday evening, plenty of things to be grateful for, but here are a few:

- Adrenalin, because sometimes, that's what it takes
- Caffeine, because sometimes, that's what it takes
- Determination, because sometimes, it's not there
- Strength training to work off stress
- Almost a weekend ...

:-)

Say goodnight, Stephanie

It's been awhile..so let me start with:
- a wonderful birthday lunch with dear friend Elaine, who I hadn't seen in almost 3 years!!
- feeling closer than ever to her
- all the good news she brought
-that we are back in touch, great feeling!
- that I'm able to use this computer again - even though its not fixed completely, I'm so glad
- beautiful carnelian beads friend brought me from Tucson gem show.
- finally getting to a couple things I'd been procrastinating around the house.
- learning more astrology in my class
- starting to refocus on amount of food I'm eating, so I can cut down on calories! I've been slacking in the food dept.

Today I am grateful for my morning walk, great breakfast of fresh fruit and yogurt.
Day of caregiving went well, trip to health food store got me more information than needed, thankful it was all good.
Afternoon stretches and fresh sunny day with spring flowers busting thru the ground
Warm jammies and a bed that is calling to me as we speak.. way too early by most standards.

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. - A. DeMille

No matter what you’re feeling, the only way to get a difficult feeling to go away is simply to love yourself for it. If you think you’re stupid, then love yourself for feeling that way. It’s a paradox, but it works. To heal, you must be the first one to shine the light of compassion on any areas within you that you feel are unacceptab

I'm battling a cold or flu, so haven't had the greatest day, but am thankful for the certainty I'll sleep tonight; that my guys fixed dinner for themselves and for me; for meditation time outdoors and progress last week on preparing a new garden bed; for cuddly cats (even though it took awhile for them to catch on -- YES, I am in bed during daylight hours, NO, I'm not going to get up just yet!).

Off to sink into my memory foam mattress with a heating pad on my chest, and a box of Kleenex by my side...

Have a healthy, happy Thursday Spark friends!

Tonight my gratitudes include...

~ SUN! emoticon

~ Getting to run Week 6 Day 2 of C25K outside today! (OK, there was a few snow flurries:)

~ Going shopping at Old Navy and getting to buy Size 8 jeans! (I never, ever thought I'd be able to say that)

~ That my son has an interview tomorrow in NY

Tonight's Attitude of Gratitude ...

~ the awesome people I work with

~ turning lemons into lemonade

~ catching up with one of my favorite friends tonight

~ sheltering myself from negativity

~ exceptional board meeting, tremendous positive energy and a strategy for continued success

~ continued progress on my sprint to spring challenge

Today, may I make good decisions that create positive outcomes and may I have wonderful, loving people in my life to share this awesome journey with.

Thankful this evening for
* Making it through this long, long day
* Friends who understand me and accept my frailties
* A gorgeous sky after the rain, which is the reminder that dark hours always pass
* Breakfast for dinner
* My husband, who is truly my human rock, the wind beneath my wings, and about 99% of the time (there are those times of exception!) the kindest man I know.
* Humor...
