Tonight, I end my day with gratitude for all of this, yet so much more:

-A day that ended up being pretty perfect to do a Habitat for Humanity community service day
-Learning how to install vinyl siding
-The last day of May, making tomorrow the start of a new month, full of opportunity
-Music and those musicians who share it with us
-A day off tomorrow, extending my holiday weekend further
-My calf being healed pretty well and not bothering me any more at all ... yay!!

Goodnight all ... see you in June ...

The world is evolving from imperfection to perfection. It needs all love and sympathy; great tenderness and watchfulness are required from each one of us.
-- Hazrat Inayat Khan

Good morning,

Happy to be here to share some of what's right~~

~ Mary Ann's back! Mary Ann's back!

~ freshly cut sweet, juicy organic pineapple

~ knowing that my personal sense of worth is NOT dependent upon others' approval

~ the importance of shelter (and music!) tinyurl.com/42s78r2

~ the poetry of Pat Schneider

THE PATIENCE OF ORDINARY THINGS

It is a kind of love, is it not?
How the cup holds the tea,
How the chair stands sturdy and foursquare,
How the floor receives the bottoms of shoes
Or toes. How soles of feet know
Where they’re supposed to be.
I’ve been thinking about the patience
Of ordinary things, how clothes
Wait respectfully in closets
And soap dries quietly in the dish,
And towels drink the wet
From the skin of the back.
And the lovely repetition of stairs.
And what is more generous than a window?

Blessed be,
xox
Maha

- walk @ lunch
- turkey mignon defrosting in the frig
- CROPS greens salad
- experimenting with morning routine @ night

Today I am thankful...

for following my light Maha to tell her and you how glad I am for another mostly rainless weekend so the sun could bake my soggy brain a bit... (this is a good thing, in case you're wondering...)...

For a farm stand discovered in a wandering Saturday that yielded both South Carolina peaches and a strawberry-rhubarb pie both of which were dee-LISHuss...

for time to think and time to sleep and time to talk...

for an extra day to do all of these things and see what June brings...

Safe travels to all of us travellers, eh?

Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much. For on the smiles, the thanks we give, our little gestures of appreciation, our neighbors build their philosophy of life.
-- A.J. Cronin

Good morning,

I come to this wonderful community to share some of what's right in my world~~

~ a reasonable night's sleep

~ a bike ride ahead to meet a friend for morning coffee

~ Eknath Easwaran's Bhagavad Gita...brilliant translating of Ghandi's guidebook and one of the few volumes that will go with me to Ecuador

~ having made a hostal reservation in Quito this morning for Adelaida and me for my first three nights in Ecuador -- GIRL ALONE TIME! Ahhhhhhhhh....

~ oh Lynn, though I live in the foothills of the Andes, I hope to swim in the "other" ocean this summer, on Ecuador's Pacific coast

Blessed be,

Still feeling thankful! For people like Maha who actually wrote on my Spark page to tell me how much she resonated with my last post!
Today's time at Unity. Rousing music, a solo performance of an Opera piece that was just Stunning!! how lucky can a girl get!?
and Rev. Sonja's speech was about the Four Agreements and was lovely and profound.

Maha - it's in the Fillmore. On Bush, off Fillmore street.

For the beautiful big-hearted man who does guard duty 2 days a week in my apt. building.
He is such a blessing. Love you, Leroy.

Money to buy healthy food at trader joes today (well, mostly healthy)

Motivation to finally take down my curtains and wash the dust off of them!

Thankful for morning sunshine after a healthy overnight rain.
Looking forward to another day with extended family to share the music and merriment of jazz in old town Sacramento. Loving what music does to ALL people.
Choosing peace whenever/wherever possible.

Thankful for all our troops-active or gone and not forgotten. They are uppermost in my mind this weekend.

Great day! I'm thankful for SO MUCH today...

Got to start my morning out at a coffeehouse listening to some great music and spending time with friends I haven't seen in a long time. Beautiful morning, too.
My daughter napped today! No small feat.
While playing with my daughter this afternoon, I discovered I can do a headstand! I haven't even attempted one of those in ten years, easily. Felt awesome!
A good friend treated us to a movie, and I managed to enjoy the movie while NOT eating theater popcorn. And, my 3-year old made it through the whole thing. That's a first.
Made a great dinner tonight despite not wanting to put any effort into food prep.
Some Kind of Wonderful is on TV. I adore this movie.

Have faith in yourself and in the future. -Ted Kennedy

Hello all you wonderful people. Yes, I've signed on today - hope it continues!

I am thankful today, especially, for the healing that is taking place between my brother and I,

taking turns saying, I value myself for....and I value You for....and it worked beautifully! I am SO SO thankful for the time we spent yesterday together up in Marin on a mountain trail.

thankful for the moments recently where I've softened my Heart towards Myself (and my Brother) so we can - at age 60 - stop the bickering and Relate from the Heart.

thankful also for Unity church - finally I'm part of a community where I feel myself. Sharing love and spirituality and Music! all denominations welcome, and the pastor is a woman!
Yes, I am grateful I found it, about a year ago.

Tonight, my gratitude realm is leaning in the exact same direction it was this morning:

-That Kansas City, despite having 3-5 tornado cells moving through yesterday, received no major damage, just some tree damage
-That the community of Joplin, Missouri is pulling together to help each other in the midst of the most destructive tornado in our country since 1950
-Heart-to-Heart International and the American Red Cross (my favorite being Heart-to-Heart, and that's where MY donation went), good organizations that are always spot-on and quickly in a disaster, including this one
-My company, once again, setting up a Disaster Relief Fund, and matching all employee donations up to $25,000 (just like they did for Katrina and Japan)
-That I had time before evacuating my floor at work to the inner stairwells (I'm on the Safety Team) to call my partner, who is hard of hearing even with hearing aids, and direct her to the basement STAT
-That despite tornados going right over our heads, both at home and at work, they didn't touch down, and we just had a few minor tree limbs laying around the yard
-Mother Nature, who is giving our world heavy doses of reality lately, on just how badly we have treated her for so many years, and she's NOT HAPPY!!! - I do my very best to respect her
-My life and that it is still intact, which causes my major gratitude when I look at the poor people in Joplin who lost lives, homes, cars and much more, then got rain on top of that, resulting in what MIGHT have been pulled out of rubble being totally soaked

Make it an excellent evening everybody!!

Want the change. Be inspired by the flame
where everything shines as it disappears.
The artist, when sketching, loves nothing so much
as the curve of the body as it turns away.

What locks itself in sameness has congealed.
Is it safer to be gray and numb?
What turns hard becomes rigid
and is easily shattered.

Pour yourself out like a fountain.
Flow into the knowledge that what you are seeking
finishes often at the start, and, with ending, begins.

Every happiness is the child of a separation
it did not think it could survive. And Daphne, becoming a laurel,
dares you to become the wind.

-- Rainer Maria Rilke

Good morning! First WatermEllen sent me this Rilke...then today it again appears in my Inbox from Joe, purveyor of fine poetry via panhala.net. Soooo...I decided it was crying to be shared with y'all, from "Want the change" to "Every happiness is the child of a separation." It's all just so good.

BIG emoticon to Schenley & BIG emoticon to Trace 'cept for "far kinder than I am."

WAAAAAAAAAAH! Kathy (AT) and I played phone tag...and missed! So she only got my Bon Voyage in a message. But I was so hoping to have a word with her before she left on the Great Adventure to Europe and the Eastern Bloc. Twelve days and counting for me....

I'm giving thanks this morning~~

~ for my seemingly indomitable spirit

~ for Klee Wyck, Growing Pains, and the life and work of Emily Carr

~ for the inspiration of Dave Stringer's devotional music

~ for the intention to, as DARKTHOR advised, "use each moment wisely, since this moment is my life!"

~ got lots accomplished yesterday -- YAY!

Blessed be!

OMG! Lynn, that's VERY serious -- the loss of a blueberry rhurbarb pie!!!

Hi there, Shen! emoticon

Tonight I am grateful for...

~ The wonderful girl that cut my hair & did my brows today:-)

~ Red, White & Blue Thumbprints. Yum...

~ Getting excited to go visit our son in South Carolina on Friday:D

Hello. My name is Schenley and my friend Tracy directed me to this Team. Each morning I gave thanks and ask for strength and she suggested that I join this time as it's a bunch of encouraging people who give thanks each day. What a wonderful way to count all of our blessings! So I come to this group with an open heart and much gratitude.

I am thankful for:
A sparkfriend who lives right around the corner from me
Getting in 75 minutes of yoga that allowed me to feel centered, peaceful and balanced
A boyfriend who had a delicious and nutritious dinner waiting when I walked thru the door
A warm embrace from said boyfriend saying how much he missed me today
Being basked in love and light

What wonderful blessings to count today and every day!

There will be ups and downs during this journey. But as long as you put your best and healthy foot forward, you'll see the change that will make this journey worth traveling.

What joy to follow Viivian...

And on my last day in the US for 3 1/2 weeks, I express much much gratitude
* For the opportunity awaiting me as I discover the lands of my ancestors
* For thinking (for now, at least) we have everything packed that will be necessary.
* For being able to afford this trip of a lifetime
* For knowing our home, our pets and our family are being cared for in our absence
* For the GREAT visit with my dad, and for how well he tolerated it
* For spending a solid four days last weekend with family...and celebrating the hard work of another college graduate in our family
* For all of you here, who are carrying on the wonderful practice of expressing gratitude and thanksgiving on a regular basis...and for Maha who will set up June's thread in my absence.
* For the reminders of how fragile life is...

Today... I am finding my thankful...

for yinz because I wouldn't come back here for anything but the people. I don't plan to be around much but when I can, I'll be here with you... and when I'm not... I'm still here with you... yinz hear?

I'm thankful for a second day of sun and heat... when the end of the first one yesterday brought me a SP pal I had no idea was literally around the corner from me and who walked with me down to the river and back and a generally fine time was had... for an hour in the middle of the day today to get together with a roomful of people who had come together to hear 4 of them discuss Life after State Government and every one of them riffed on the same theme...

find your happy... mind your own self... know that the life goes on and on and on...

I'm thankful for the bird on the branch outside my window just now... preening at a wing feather... sitting in the shade... reminding me that there are plenty of things to do in this world besides answering email and being aggravated at pixels on a computer screen...

I'm thankful for clean teeth and a pretty good hygienist and a crackerjack dentist who look after my mouth...

I'm thankful for the gift of music my brother made to me this week and a long conversation with him this weekend after many weeks of not getting a chance to do that...

And I'm very thankful for the chance and the place to come and tell you about all that I'm thankful for...

Tonight, I end my day with gratitude for:

-A visit from Donald and Daisy, our mallard duck friends, and they were SO TRUSTING of me this time that I got TONS of great shots of them in our water gardens playing/eating algae (us water gardeners like this!!)
-Our amazing back yard
-Being able to work at home tomorrow, giving myself an extra 1-2 hours by not having to get dressed up and drive to and from
-Calf is probably very close to totally healed, but I'm trying to not push it too hard, too quickly (hoping to be OK for the 400M run for Corporate Challenge two weeks from today)
-A great (and short, the way I like them) software training session via web today for a new program I'm dealing with at work
-Looking forward to a holiday weekend and grateful for the meaning behind the holiday AND the paid time off work

Goodnight all ...

~ lovely to have Karla's bright presence among us again

~ happy that my problems are so mild, and I rage in keeping them from overcoming me

~ I tried to play "cupid" with my wonderful 38-yr. old single Spanish prof, but he'd have none of it:

My follow-up email to him:
"You already knew I was a little crazy, right? So my phone call yesterday wasn't too out of character, right?"

His response:
"You're not crazy, and your phone call was nice. Thanks and cheers,"

~ another day to get it right ("righter")!

Thankful I was able to go back to bed and slept a little more
Thankful for friends that will help me this week with various jobs my dh left in our car
Thankful for a cool breeze that's been blowing our way for days

Hello all! emoticon


Well it's been a few weeks since I've checked in; work, family and personal issues have been consuming my time of late and left me with little time to visit Sparkpeople, or visit the Internet world in general. Not a bad thing, actually; I have come to the conclusion that I need to let myself off the electronic leash occasionally. So I will continue to be here, just not as often, and I am reevaluating some of my other goals and priorities as well.

That said, this week I am grateful for:

--my husband's graduation, with academic honors, from the cardiovascular ultrasound program he has been in for the past 18 months. Now he begins his job hunt in earnest, and prepares to take his board exam in July.

--DH's promise to take time from studying for his boards to complete a long-delayed painting project!

--MIL agreeing to try Al-Anon, to help deal with BIL's issues.

--White Tea (iced, please!)

--Ice cream (in small doses, of course!)

--An unusually mild May, very few hot days in the desert so far!

--The bundle of wacky, adorable energy that is my 4-year-old niece!

--Times Of Grace, "The Hymn Of A Broken Man." So, so good, and so inspirational to me.

--Ani DiFranco, "Not A Pretty Girl." Found this CD while doing some much-need closet cleaning a couple of weeks ago, forgot how good it is. The title track was kind of "My Song" back in the day...

--surviving the internal audit at work, compliments from the boss on our efforts.

--that my sinus infection required only 1 round of antibiotics to clear up, instead of the usual 2 or 3...


Many blessings to all....

Offer joy to one person in the morning, and relieve the grief of one person in the afternoon.
-- Thich Nhat Hanh (front of card from a friend)

Good morning,

I'm so grateful to have a life of abundance in so many ways, unlike SO MANY of the world's inhabitants, including~~

~ an amazing circle with inmate friends last night

~ the soul-stirring piano of musical genius Keith Jarrett, who said, "I go in emptier than you can get because, I actually have to wipe myself clean of any thoughts of music when I walk out there. If it doesn't start from silence and then just go into sound, the rest of the piece suffers."

~ being surprised and deeply touched by a card from a SparkFriend who said, in part..."I pray blessings on your trip preparations and, as you go, for nourishment and refreshment for body and soul...for inspiration and openness to possibility beyond your imagination...."

~ the delight of getting acquainted with new SparkFriend BLUEBIRDSFLY

~ lunch yesterday of a humongous create-your-own salad for $8 which a friend and I split(!) and then enjoyed gelato for dessert!!!

Blessed be,
xox
Maha

Strength does not come from physical capacity.
It comes from an indomitable will.
