August thread is now set up. Please start posting there after midnight tonight...but not before.

I also posted a youtube video of Deepak Chopra. A very brief discussion and meditation video. I encourage each of you to look at it prior to posting tomorrow.

Grateful for...

* Music and musicians. While listening to a concert of astonishing Russian Gypsy music,I realized my mouth and jaw were *unclenched* for the first time in a while.
* Friends and friendship. Had a grand time at the festival with friends.
* Kicks in the pants, even if they are unpleasant, that spark forward motion.

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

4. Cleaning and setting up the fountain (better late than never...)
5. A cooling shower, AC and my DH grilling salmon.

On the day BEFORE THE NEW MONTH BEGINS (yes, I am remembering!) I express gratitude
* For a long hot shower, followed by a nap (oh, yes, this retirement thing could get to be a habit!) with DEEP sleep and amazing dreams.
* For honesty prevailing
* That hubby and I moved the elephant off the ottoman
* For making it through day one of start over 187
* For all the things in my daily life I take for granted...access to electricity, phone service, grocery stores with an abundance of items, paved roads, inside plumbing, hot water, and so on and so on and so on...
* For choosing NOT to go to the fair today.
* Friendships that continue to blossom

On this Saturday, the day BEFORE the last day of the month, AT (sorry, just had to give you a hard time, but with love and a smile!!!!), I am filled with gratitude for so many things. Here are just a few for today:

-An EXCELLENT 2 hours working out today. I've gotten into a Saturday a.m. routine of full body strength training (that takes about 55 minutes), followed by an hour or so of cardio
-This routine is a good one because Sunday is my true day of rest (from exercise anyway) so working hard on Saturday is easier
-Mixing everything up with my workout routines, which seems to be making the stupid scale move a bit - I added Zumba and Ashtanga yoga, plus upped the strength training
-Staying home tonight, cooking a healthy dinner and watching a Netflix movie
-In the air conditioning, which is STILL a MAJOR gratitude of mine!!!!
-Sonic Diet Cherry Limeades, a fairly healthy treat on a hot summer day - they even have a happy hour!!

Have a great evening!

Stephanie

Thankful this morning
* For the BEST cup of coffee EVER!
* For the combined fragrence of gardenias, roses and jasmine in our yard
* For finding new inspiration from an sparkmail this morning
* For the choices I am given...the opportunities that present themselves in my life.
* For the next generations of my family...my son, neices and nephews...and their kids. How they all "keep me young" (and laughing a lot!)
* As the end of the month is upon us, feeling confident that I will (as I did NOT the past few months!) remember to start the August thread (in fact I was ready to a little while ago, but realized it was not quite time...)

Thankfulness: What is it really. To me it can mean two different things. 1) you are thankful for
material things, like your home, food, car, job and clothes. 2) One is thankful for the "Our
Father" in Heaven. He chose to make us and he can choose to let us die. We should be thank
ful for being a child of his. After all the Bible says we are his brides waiting for the groom. Our spirit, faith, inner peace and well being are all part of a thankfulness that we shouldn't take for
granted for any reason. To each their own on religion. I'm not preaching that. I'm only saying
God made us and God can take us away. And for that we should be Thankful. emoticon

Thursday morning thanks include ....

* pain less yesterday than it has been since May ... maybe the doc's prodding and poking had a therapeutic effect. Look forward to taking a walk again soon.

* eating at home (as opposed to restaurants)

* eating lots of vegetables (it's easier when eating at home)

* last minute lunch with a dear friend yesterday

* sleeping in this morning (until 6 am) - it felt so good to get that extra sleep

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

Shine,

Tonight, my gratitude includes all of this, yet so much more:

-Candy corn, fresh from the field, local and sustainably grown (and it tastes like candy, melts in your mouth)!!!
-Peaches and cantaloupe again this week in my CSA bag, along with patty pad squash, jalapenos, pablanos, watermelon, and a loaf of ciabatta - all quite the bounty
-Have I mentioned my growing and ongoing, sincere, extreme appreciatiation for air conditioning? 104 degrees here today, not including heat index - REALLY?
-A wonderful dinner cooked together tonight - shrimp, corn on the cob (candy), small red potato, a slice of ciabatta with light butter and toasted cheese in the new toaster oven - gee, can we all see that my mind is on food tonight???? :) But hey, it's REALLY GOOD food ...
-So much abundance in my life; so many choices
-Knowing that I had a harder yoga class this afternoon, so need to just chill and stretch tonight and get some extra rest

Goodnight all ...

My lack of posting here does NOT reflect a lack of gratitude...Constant reflections of how very blessed I am. Tonight, I especially give thanks for
* Realizing I did NOT over sleep when I awakened in a panic. I actually AM retired
* For the most amazing neighbors
* For quiet time doing laps in our warm pool, surrounded by redwoods, blue skies and the smell of jasmine in bloom
* For the gift of healing
* For finding and making contact with another line of my family tree
* For my hubby, my son and DIL, the grandkids who are strong, smart and healthy
* For my parents who still bless me with their physical presence on this planet.

Tonight, my gratitudes include:

-Getting my partner out of the house for dinner tonight
-The absolute look of thrill on her face when we stopped by the grocery store on the way home for milk. Three bags later ... (She really has been pretty trapped at home due to excessive heat warnings)
-Flexibility on my job; being able to work from home today to accomplish an errand at lunch that needed to be taken care of
-Excellent strength training workout this evening (workout date, actually)
-Each of you sharing this practice with me
-My very soft and comfortable bed, calling me now ...

Goodnight all ...

Here I am!

Arrival of 2 great books about a personal problem I have (Trich). Super inspiring.
Bunches of people on the Trich Spark team posted this weekend. It's a sort of quiet group.
Sad about a friend's runaway daughter, but happy to know she is with family now and things could be worse.
Ability to pray and encourage said friend in her despair.
Little trip to get away for a day before the rush of school stuff returns next week.
Broccoli on my lunch table today!
A certain Spark Goodie that brightened my day.

Gone tomorrow, back on Wednesday.

On a Spark Break. Back soon!
