Love all that has been created by God, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf and every ray of light. Love the beasts and the birds, love the plants, love every separate fragment. If you love each separate fragment, you will understand the mystery of the whole resting in God.
-- Fyodor Dostoevsky

Greetings all my dear friends! Taking a moment during a trip to Otavalo to spend with you and revel in the joy of reading your thanks giving and offer some of my own==

= a beautiful, big, bold red bromlliad greeted me this morning first thing as I looked down into the front yard from the balcony and my 2nd floor bedroom, German was also blown away by its beauty when he went out into the yard this morning

= the amazing vegetarian meals both Adelaida and German prepare

= the surprise of Sandra "finding me" today and the joy of chatting with her via Gmail

= options, so many options

= a short-but-sweet phone coversation with dear Maui friend Diana last night

= the good news that Kathy (our fearless leader here in the TGC) is headed to Peru, intrepid travelers that she and her hubby have become!!! I "assume" that Macho Pichu is in their itinerary???

Blessed be!

Well, the prodigal has returned to say:

I AM THANKFUL!

I AM SO!!!

Especially for all y'all who keep this practice... often in the middle of a whirlwind of whack-a-mole existence that is my office life, I will think of yinz here and vow to come and balance my brain and gather my thoughts and find my center... and then 4 more people come at me asking for the answers they know I will give them... (my title at work is VP in Charge of Blame... I will gladly make a decision because not making one is what all the other people do!! LOL) and I don't get over here again...

but knowing you are here finding YOUR center helps me a LOT.

A LOT LOT LOT...

And I want you to know how much YOUR being here IS MY THANKFUL!!!

I'm happy to report since my last appearance here I have NOT twisted my boss's head off despite his needing it more than EVAR... so HE can be thankful for that.,..

I am thankful for a cool day... two of them in a row, actually... barely any humidity... so pleasantly warm and sunny it breaks your heart...

I am thankful for cherries and watermelon and even strawberries still... I am SO thankful for summer and the fruit the Earth gives us this time of year...

I am thankful for wonderful people who labor long and hard at a very. odd. job. who work every day to help me get whatever goofy thing it is I do.. done...

I am thankful for the gift of wandering around this marble in space and the chance to get it right. one. more, time.

THANK YOU!

Wonderful blessings DOKEYOKEY

I am grateful for:
1. An 18 mile bike ride with friends and my DH (even though he is a tad sore this morning)
2. Finishing laundry yesterday (after the bike ride)
3. My zero-balance massage @ noon – have had to miss the last couple and looking forward to rebalancing…
4. Living on high ground – another 3” of hard rain last night
5. Awareness of my body – sore knee on a day when I have a massage (no bike) and off day from 10K training (no running) – universe protecting and instructing me

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

Here is it, almost the end of the month and this is my first post for June! So many things to be thankful...starting with just a few
* For my husband FINALLY being willing to travel
* For the amazing, life altering trip we just returned from
* For the inspiration provided from the courageous people who lived under the Soviet regime
* For the cathedrals and churches of Eastern Europe, whose walls contained the desperate prayers of the centuries
* For stumbling on a rehearsal, which actually ended up being our private concert, of Mozart's Requium...full orchestra and a choir of probably 150 people.
* For Russian shuba, Lithuanian cold beet soup and espresso
* For a reasonably quick recovery from jet lag.
* For a hot deal on a last minute trip. Next stop? River boat down the Amazon.

I want to make sure and come here today to share in gratitudes before leaving work. My home computer has been on the blink (again - insert big sigh), so I haven't made it for a few days.

Today, my gratitudes include all of this, yet so much more:

-An excellent showing on my part for the Corporate Challenge swim meet. I swam 5 events and am FINALLY seeing some REAL RESULTS in getting my wind back after 10 years of NOT smoking
-Sunday is my 10-year anniversary of quitting smoking!! I smoked for more than 20 years and quitting was the hardest thing I ever did and it took many attempts. Woo Hoo!!
-A weekend to try and get things caught up at home
-This stupendously wonderful weather we've been having this week and being able to enjoy the cooler temps and lower humidity
-Our water garden rebuild is nearly done
-Making plans for the upcoming visit of my 9-year-old nephew who lives in CA and will be spending almost a week with us this summer (it's a first and he's a GREAT kid)
-It feels so good to KNOW that I'm overcoming what smoking took away from me, and that as I'm getting older, I'm getting better and healthier

Make it an excellent evening!!

Stephanie

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7 KJV
And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness sake [for what is right], you are blessed. And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. I Peter 3:13-14, NKJV

3. Recipes for using the bountiful harvest including Tabbouleh.
4. Being treated to a DQ coney dog, onion rings and mini blizzard after waiting for a dear friend to split our CSA box
5. Watching the sunset while savoring my DQ treat (fabulous night and morning skies - can't ask for more than that)

Afternoon all
Sorry I've missed the wonderful posts.

Grateful
1. I was able to catch up on them
2. I'm feeling better today (not quite 100%, but that will feel even better)
3. I didn't have to prepare lunch as we went out Friday, so it was waiting in the frig
4. I caught up on meeting minutes
5. I'm able to delay the completion of an important project that needs more time to be right
