Welcome back GinaBug and BrightStar7! I had breakfast with Maha yesterday. She stopped by home to pick up her pillow and replace her hard drive before the drive to the ashram in Virginia. We had breakfast. She was ready to get on the road, planning a route that would take her down country roads rather than the interstate. She says hello to all (and will probably post herself very soon).

This morning, I am thankful for ...
* seeing my son two days in a row
* a delicious meal cooked by my son the chef
* a productive day ahead (although very busy)
* first day of summer school classes
* finally starting my internship tomorrow, thankfully with a staffing.
* as always, a life worth living, possibilities and freedom to choose

Tonight I am grateful for...

~ Lots of errands done

~ Remembering to make my 1 year headache neurologist appointment & calling to get my stupid shots

~ A great 4 mile run tonight in gorgeous weather:D

~ Chocolate cake leftovers from a groom's cake from a wedding my son was in over the weekend. If I'm going to give in to temptation, THIS is the cake!

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

Grateful for:

Silly puppy girl, who barked at the weed whacker and got happy about chasing it (yes, it is dangerous & yes I shut it off, but for the moment, it was funny).

Nice weather today, to finish yard work and make my neighbors happier with me. Let's just say I have the weediest yard in the neighborhood of perfect lawns.... which makes me happy, but probably not them. ;)

That parents are well, sister is doing well, and her job is going well.

That I have a job that I like (most of the time) and that for now, it seems pretty stable.... pray that it lasts beyond September!

~ For the incredible happy news about Mazzy's sister... Yay Pearl!!

~ For new blogs by our Fractalmyth... her broken hip mystery is becoming clearer and her surgery was successful and she is trying to learn to maneuver around so she can be released to go home...

her blogs are here:

~beautiful dream that included both of my deceased parents and our expected grandbaby. "She" (I think it's a she) was just learning to walk and had a huge bowl of popcorn and kept saying, "no, Gramma, I do it myself". Curly black hair and very stubborn ... hmmm, just like her mommy :) LOL

~ telling my daughter-in-law of my dream and her getting a kick out of it

~ that the bid they placed on a new house went through finally!

~ my son telling me he will do "whatever it takes" to afford the new house and take care of his family. A great kid who works very hard.

~ salsa lesson today with my friend and then having dinner and drinks. Good fun and laughter. We were in WAY over our heads but did it anyway!

~ my sweet man doing most of the weeding today and not minding my escaping for dancing. Spending the last hour weeding with him although my allergies have kicked in.

~ lots of rain making weeding a bit easier

~ a very hot bath next to sooth my aches

~ a nice big bed to fall into soon

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 for a peaceful weekend at home (a rare one!), that my slightly dented van will be fixed soon (parking accident, someone backed into me, and no, I wasn't present when it happened).

Thankful that Rosy is healthy and happy, that we're getting some much needed rain, and that Memorial Day weekend is coming home, time for home & family.

This morning I resolve to be thankful

~ for a weekend that showed up just at the moment I could not take one more minute of the week...

~ For a fridge full of wonderful food that I can choose to gobble up or eat a little at a time... that Cedars of Lebanon lunch on Wednesday is STILL in there... half of it... Good LORD was it good... I am STILL thankful for that... Ok... I guess I better eat it before it spoils which would really just be criminal...

~ For Sandra's lunch with Maha... I will look forward to another MMMT sighting report...

~ For Taz checking in to let us know how she is...

~ For a really good pot of coffee helping me get this day started...

~ and EVERY. ONE. OF. YOU.

If you want something bad enough, you will find a way, if you don't you will find an excuse.

Grateful tonight
* That all of your "close calls" were injury and loss free today
* For a great healthy meal shared with European friend tonight
* For access to healthcare
* For an incredibly beautiful day
* For being so inspired to paint again
* For Rebecca's post taking me back to the carefree days of communal living in the heart of the hippie movement. Some things are always a part of you....

On this Friday night, I have much to be grateful for, but here is a small part of it to share:

-Noreen (or others) not being hurt in accident
-A kick ass circuit training workout at lunch today
-Getting the bulk of the shopping for tomorrow night's party done TONIGHT, thereby alleviating a lot of stress tomorrow
-Anticipation of one last final celebration for my graduation
-Family and friends, including SparkFriends!!!

Have a great night!

Tonight ...

~ productive lunch/meeting

~ big CRACK at the chiropractor

~ Getting myself to the Y for a great workout

~ music to accompany me

~ my dear man shouldering much of the household chores ... he's STILL out cutting grass with the headlights on :)

~ that the rain held off long enough to get the jungle cut!

~ that the accident I had today was small with no noticeable damage - I don't think anything will materialize for the young man I drifted into = fingers crossed

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 afternoon!
I am thoroughly grateful for

- walking more than five miles already today.
- going with friends to Swami-ji's lectures this week.
- quiet time to be with myself.

This morning I am grateful for ...
* the opportunity to go back to school even though it sometimes overwhelms
* The challenge of starting my internship on Wednesday mixed with a little trepidation. Who wouldn't be a bit anxious about working with 6-11 year old emotionally disturbed boys in a residential program?
* Talking to Maha yesterday and looking forward to breakfast on Monday
* a supportive, loving spouse who understands and accepts me as I am
* Friends, friends, friends
* as always, a life worth living, possibilities and freedom to choose

Shine,
Sandra
