Today I am grateful for a break from the HEAT. For wonderful salmon croquettes and bok-choy salad for dinner. For a few hours spent with my honey, doing what we both like to do, spend money on things that are necessary. A good visit with my son and that he will be seeing a few days of work this upcoming week.
For a mechanic in the family to help same son keep his car running. And for my neighbor that was craving a beer, (after 4 days of digging and work in his yard through the temps)and I had one available for him. For all that I have been given in my life, good health and good friends, family and loved ones.

Grateful for:

That Mom continues to improve and that her sister came to visit her & they had a good time.

That I got to work today, and felt relatively good today.

That my boss had a good 'last' day, and liked the gift I gave her, even though she'd said no gifts. (I was not going to listen! Nobody should leave on their retirement day & not get anything at all.... made it for her too, so I think she'll really love it & use it).

Grateful that, whatever comes to pass, that my family and I are blessed by having each other. Sometimes I fear losing them all, but I know that I have been blessed by having them at all.

And of course, very grateful for my two furry companions, who somehow, just really love me.

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

Life has been a whirlwind of late and I'm so grateful today that my youngest son graduated from high school yesterday AND we're leaving tomorrow morning for two weeks vacation. Blessed as well with sunshine this morning, and a 'to do' list that is almost -- almost! -- do-able in the time I have remaining to get it all done [funny what things eventually drop off that list!].

Can hardly wait to meet up with Michelle and Kathy in the coming days...have a great week everyone!

This morning I am thankful for ...

* a break in the heat

* a long chat with my daughter who is safely back in Cape Town from her adventures in east Africa (and her mama's worries about her fearlessness)

* buying a baby gate to keep the dogs enclosed at night so I won't wake up to messes under my computer in the morning

* pondering the nature of communication in relationships (how to communicate directly without being passive aggressive. It's a challenge to say what I need/want without being apologetic)

* quiet time in the morning before the sun rises

* as always, a life worth living, possibilities and freedom to choose.

Shine,
Sandra

Glad to hear your feeling better, Sparkerisa!

Thankful today for:
*Perfect summer weather

*My partner's continued recover from surgery (she spent the whole day out of bed yesterday!)

*Health insurance and some financial wiggle room

*Birds chirping--yes, they wake me up at 4:30 sometimes (like today!), but they also provide a lot of comfort to me

*Fuschia yarrow

More gratitudes:

That Mom continues to improve, and was awake all day today, continues to feel good. Pray that this continues and her healing continues without any further setbacks.

That Rosy did a good job at tracking class today. She was fun to work with, and all the people in class did a good job and seem to be enjoying the learning process.

For the sheer joy of being outside and enjoying the elements... such a relief to have a break in the oppressive heat we've had lately.

For how green the fields are, and how lovely nature is. Praises be!

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

Today I am thankful. Yes, the heat of the day, the coolness of the night and peaceful sleep. For an interesting meet up with other sparkers and getting the opportunity to turn more virtual friends into 3D. What magic. For the health of my family and friends and veggies from my little garden. For all that I have been given and that I am able to share. (Loving thoughts for travelers on the roads for safe returns to the place they love to be.) Thankful for all who come to this forum to share their gratitudes.

This morning I am especially thankful ...

* air conditioning fixed (it's been hovering around 100 degrees so no time for the a/c to be out)

* patience not to twist the head off an untrained dog that poops under my dining room table (where my computer is located) EVERY night. (it's not my dog to train)

* looking forward to knocking some homework off my list this weekend.

* breakfast with a friend in a few minutes (I need to get ready)

* Peaceful One who added me to her book of quotations. I am humbled to be among such company.

* as always, a life worth living, possibilities and freedom to choose.

Shine,
Sandra

Dolly... I am thankful for the time you have with your brother right NOW...

I am thankful for getting up early to see the river at 5... so much more quiet... I watched the egrets having their fresh caught fish breakfasts...

I am thankful for a long report getting written and done the day before it was due...

I am thankful for blossoms on the tomatoes... 2 cucumber pants growing like champs even though I only planted the seeds a week ago and the sunflowers in the front garden blooming like gorgeous suns... their faces looking me right in the eye as I get in the car to go to work... daring me to be anything but happy...

Here I am following Maha two days in a row. Welcome back, Sherrie.

This morning I am grateful for ...

* the cool breeze of the morning before the heat
* a weekend away
* my first (and probably only) tattoo -- a belated 50th birthday present -- a gnarly tree of life with yin/yang shaded in it.
* laughter
* daughter safe in Nairobi after wild trip through eastern Africa
* pesto
* as always, a life worth living, possibilities and freedom to choose.

~planted 7 dogwood bushes that grew from red twigs which were stuck with evergreens in planters for decoration through the winter, they leafed out and branched out beautifully before the annuals got planted
~getting free landscaping plants by accident
~the city is putting in the bike path 2 blocks from us and it will connect with a system that goes for 27 miles with more to be added

Today I am thankful for so many things...

~ the fresh fruits and vegetables that you all are raising... so many crops coming in so early from all the rain and hot weather... See? There IS an upside!!!

~ an hour or 2 of rain this morning to take the heat out of the morning air so Pickles and I could get our 2 miles walked with only a little sweatiness happening...

~ another day to get ready for the week to come... enough time to review... enough time to begin the big fat ridiculous report I will spend a lot of time on today and tomorrow...

~ a call from my brother that was no more "interesting" than any of the others we have... glad to hear he is handling his life... glad to hear it from a distance!! LOL...

Appreciation is the vessel for future blessings.
-- Michael Berg

Good morning! Thanksgiving abounds for so much, including~~

~ the joy of being part of a community whose "raison d'etre" is to be thankful!

~ the symphony of birdsong

~ brown rice cooking outdoors on my new electric hotplate right now (keeps the heat outside and conserves my propane!)

~ my non-traditional brekkie ahead -- leftover kale and brown rice

~ vicariously enjoying Rebecca's new kitchen floor

Blessed be!

Grateful tonight

~ for the gratitudes shared here and the smiles their mention so often brings to my face

~ that whenever I check in I feel I've returned to a community of like-minded, gentle-hearted souls

~ that I mustered the energy today to tackle huge piles of paper and clean / re-organize parts of my studio

~ for a contented heart and growing patience with myself

~ for the renewal of old friendships and the mysterious bonds that have endured over the span of many years

~ for fresh green peas and sweet new strawberries

~ for upcoming vacation time...four more sleeps and then we're off to California (and I'm really looking forward to meeting both Michelle and Kathy in person!)

Have a lovely Sunday everyone!

Hello, Tazmomsgol, Sandra, and all!

Today I am grateful...

* That I have a shared garden where I can participate in the work and harvest -- but that I don't have to do it all myself.

* For strawberries, beet greens, cilantro, spinach, and all kinds of lettuce straight out of the earth.

* That I got to play music with some lovely friends for a wedding joining two women in our great state of Vermont.

* For the possibility that we can awaken individually and collectiively.

* For being given the possibility to publish some of the research I have been involved in.

Be well.
Kathleen

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

This morning I am thankful for ....

* time to read the NYT at my leisure
* a good, stiff cup of coffee (none of that brown water stuff)
* a positive evaluation
* a weekend in northwest Arkansas (where it might be 2 degrees cooler -- or not)
* another night with the a/c off and the attic fan on -- thank goodness for houses built in the 1950s and 1960s.
* sleeping in (well until 5:30 a.m.) ... it's all relative!
* as always, a life worth living, possibilities and freedom to choose.

Shine,

So much has been given to me; I have no time to ponder over that which has been denied.
-- Helen Keller

This morning I give thanks~~

~ for the abundance of my life

~ for the Divine's perfect timing

~ for the amazing light of the full moon that softly blanketed me lying in bed last night, filtering through the forest canopy

~ for the reduced heat yesterday, and apparently today, making being out *in it* much more pleasant

~ for the joy of discovery

Blessed be!

I am GOOD and thankful that it is Friday and I have only half a day left to prevent myself from twisting anyone's head off...

Poor Maha can now attest to the level of irritation this group must endure while I am seeking to release it...

And I am ALSO thankful for Pickles' bright light that helps me every single day and was also witnessed so I know it's not just ME... unless Maha and Norlana were only being nice...

I am thankful for the happy medical news AT brings us...

And I am thankful that the storm that rolled through Mooville did not disturb the MMMT and only knocked my power out for a minute and took SO much humidity out of the air when it left...

Good Job, Storm!!!

Peace be on you ALL!!!

This morning I am grateful for ...

* Updates on Maha's continuing journey. Can't wait to hear the stories!

* yesterday's worries were for nothing.

* birds singing before the dawn

* a night without air conditioning with the attic fan blowing

* Dinner on the table when I arrived home last night

* Early to bed, early to rise (I don't know about the healthy, wealthy and wise part).

* Going back to my personal trainer who I have worked with the last year (I asked one at my new gym to call me about scheduling and she never called back -- her loss).

* Peaceful One for her encouragement.

* As always, a life worth living, possibilities and freedom to choose.

Shine,
Sandra

Many paths lead from the foot of the mountain, but at the peak we all gaze at the single bright moon.

~ for Pickles' bright energy and love that she showers upon Tracey and others who enter her world

~ for this beautiful morning after a stunning sunrise

~ for my indomintable spirit through it all

Blessed be!

Thankful tonight
* That they caught my husband's prostate cancer in the very early, very treatable stage.
* That tomorrow morning he will finally get the "seeds" implanted, with excellent prognosis.
* For our insurance company, amazing doctors, and ancillary staff who have provided education, support and encouragement since day one.
* That the only facility covered by our insurance is less than 10 miles away (others have to drive as much as 200 miles!) and that they've done thousands of these procedures.
* For the anxiety that we are both feeling, despite all, which reminds us of the things that are truly important in our lives. Unconditional love being the primary.
* For the peace and confidence that supercedes the anxiety.

And now, if I am quick, I will get to follow Maha *WAVES REAL HARD* with a proper gratitude...

for the energy that is all of us... and the grace of having it in my house... my home... with Maha and Norlana and the fullness of time to spend with them both...

For wonderful meals... wonderful music... wonderful sharing of our lifestories and the life that is still unfolding all around us every moment...

I am SO THANKFUL for the time we had together and know that it is only in parting that we can meet again...

Maha and Norlana are BOTH srsly cool people, yinz guys... I am SO happy I got to hang with them both!

I am also thankful that Pickles did not bite either of them... Maha did NOT do a faceplant off ANY of the Mooville curbs and Noreen's pillows WILL find their way back to her SOON...

We had SO much fun!!!
