Thankful tonight for:
*All the SparkPeople success stories and blogs I've been reading, which helped me stay relatively on-track when my day went off the rails

*An early morning workout that allowed me to get my exercise in today

*Patient friends who continue to care for me, even when they don't entirely get me

I'm Sue, and I won't let fear hold me back.

This Friday afternoon, I give thanks for ....

~ my afternoon session wasn't as bad as I had expected. While I hate calling the child abuse hotline, it is good to get a child out of an abusive situation. What "loving" father gives his teenage daughter a loaded pistol, shows her how to use it and then tells her "go ahead, kill yourself."

~ living moment to moment in this paradoxically fragile yet resilient life we are given

~ loving what is, letting go of the rest

~ old enough to ignore bad advice, no matter who gives it, co-worker, friend, boss, family member

~ leftover eggplant parmesan for dinner ... yum

~ seeing my partner later

~ all is well .... life is good

Shine,
Sandra

Bob, I'd send you some not-to-hot weather if I could. Would somebody plz send us some rain!

~up and exercised
~groceries, Yay!!
~new fridge is great
~our snappy turtle seems very happy with his/her new basin; it'd been squeezing into a water-filled dog dish where he could not move 'cept to get out - could not even stretch his neck. I wonder if he got a crook in his neck like I do when I sleep wrong?! Anyway, he's all stretched out and floating now.
~although struggling some with my paper, I must get it done and will keep pushing, maybe I'll shut down, relax, get a decent sleep, then come back to it full force in the morning; maybe...

~ a friend has a second appointment with an alternative therapist -- YES!

~ lovely meal with two friends at one friend's house -- great food, great company, great environments!

~ made it home last night in the midst of driving rains, major flooding of city streets, and VERY limited visibility

Thankful for...

- fans and asthma meds (our A/C waited until we hit what's supposed to be a 90+ degree heat wave to die and our repair person is away until after the wave is due to pass)

- news from the pediatrician that the two rash covered little ones aren't contagious (and more importantly that they're feeling better)

- slow but steady progress

Taz, send me some of that not too hot weather, it’s been hot and steamy in the ole south. Kaligirl, turmeric is great, I need more for the joints. Cute emoticons post today. Twinsfitby40 I too like the Pinterest quotes and motivational pics also. A really nice thing also has been some of the nostalgia boards, and seeing images from the 60’s etc.

Ditto Sherrie, on the yay payments in!!! Steph let me know when you want to enjoy and exhaust a 54 year old man…..actually I am a bit tired from typing that….AT, healthy knee prayers, and mucho jealousy over trip to Dublin, and Paris! Savoy1, belated good wishes for getting through your recent bumps in the road and keeping going! Yay!!!

take care, bob

Posting early today, since I am in crunch mode frenzy, finishing up all the details.
Mail stopped - check!
Packages, gifts sent off - check!
SD cards purchased for the cameras - check!
Found and was able to purchase two new batteries for cameras -Check
Ice bags packed - check!
Pedicure done - check!
Bills paid - check!
Flight check in done - check!
* Thankful that I got all of the above taken care of today! And now have the rest of the day to clean, and boy does this house need it.
* That the sod is laid, and sprinklers are working at the rental house. What a huge ordeal that was!
* For the multitude of birthday wishes that poured in yesterday....if I ever doubt that people care about me...I will always remember yesterday.
* That my sister made it home safely
* That I am able to recognize that the feeling of "all I want to do is have a good cry" is temporary and stress/fatigue related. Once I am on the plane it will pass
* That I will take all of you in my heart as we travel, being extra grateful for the many blessings in my life...
* That this thread will magically be set up for everyone on the first of June.... (Thanks, Stephanie!)

I will have intermittent, at best, internet service for the next three weeks. If you don't "see" me, it does NOT mean I am not living in gratitude, it only means I am keeping in my heart, and in my words, but not on this thread!

Frick, frick, frick! I had a post ready for yesterday, and pooped out in the heat, and didn't post. I almost had two days in a row- Frick!

Wednesday I was thankful for:

*hearing about some new bands I like- Vampire Weekend on CBS Sunday
Morning- love that show- and The Nationals on Colbert.
*almost 8:00 hrs. of sleep last night. Usually not close.
*getting a rush job cleaned up and planted today which has really been
stressing me out.
*body not being in too much pain after doing before said job.
*balanced meals and balance Pinterest last couple of days.

Today I am thankful for:

*being on site today. We were short, so I did more on site than usual, and really enjoyed it. Even knee pop didn't ruin it.
*sweet note my wife left me this morning.
*totally cool color combination I worked out, with two plants. They were part of the plants we bought Monday, and grouped together by chance.
*not buying any apps I saw on the Ipad Today podcast.

take care, bob

Thankful for...

-a beautiful choral concert last night watching two of my munchkins perform. This was my first born's last high school concert and it made the event that much more precious and poignant.

- small improvements

- flexibility that allowed me to renegotiate a packed day when the two little ones awoke with a mysterious rash

- access to medical care that will enable them to be seen first thing this morning

- not (yet) being covered myself in a mysterious rash :)

Thankful tonight, on the marker of another year passed...
* A day of constant phone calls, emails and texts, three happy birthday serenades, and a very special card from my hubby.
* Down to the final tasks related to trip prep...only a pedicure, quick trips to post office & Stapels, then house cleaning left to do. Should have everything done by mid afternoon.
* The fragrance of the roses as I cut back all the bushes today
* At MMA testing tonight, my son got his purple belt, youngest granddaughter got her brown belt 1! (Other grandaughter is between testings right now and DIL has started prepping for black belt testing)
* At 9:45 pm., Hubby (the king of procrastination!) is finally finishing front yard trimming, and clean up...so that it the yard will still look nice while we are gone!
* Knowing that in 48 hours from this very moment, we will be landing in Dublin, for a brief lay over on our way to PARIS!
* Knee is still holding up...

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ROBIN!!!

True happiness consists not in the multitude of friends, but in their worth and choice.
-- Samuel Johnston

Good morning,

So much to be thankful for today~~

~ PAR-TAY!!! And not only are we celebrating dear Robin's personal new year, but:

~ I bow in gratitude for the joy of my friendship with another Birthday Girl...this is the day our fearless leader landed here on planet Earth (she hasn't shared from where...yet, lol)

~ love Kathy's pre-trip comment, "the frenzy has begun" and oh! how I can relate!

~ ready to dive in with cake-making preparations, my morning task!

~ love the Old Testament book of Psalms and Psalms 30 is wonderful, especially this nugget, "Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning."

Blessed be,
xox

I'm thanfkful...

- enough deep breaths and perspective to take a tough coaching (riding/dressage) session in stride, and accept that I must hit rock bottom, and go backwards before I can progress again and get where I want to with my horse
- also taking in stride several recent serious binge/emotional eating episodes and shaking it off, one foot in front of the other and keep going
- new monogrammed company shirts arrived and fit better than I remember from the samples
- a rare apology from someone
- medical care easily accessible to my son in Ecuador after he picked up an intestinal bug

Tonight, I am grateful for:

-A few hours alone at home; it's rare and I totally enjoy silence (other than the kitties)
-Costco trip completed
-Getting to work after being on vacation to find out we are casual again this summer through Labor Day (and shorts, if we want, the week of 4th of July)
-Learning a real lesson about how difficult it is when you HAVE to eat at restaurants (the sodium upped the small weight loss I had) and hoping it will go away again in a few days as I know sodium can cause it to fluctuate
-Finding my partner's cell phone for her; she'd spent the afternoon calling around where she'd been and I was able to check under her car seat (the typical "falling out of her pocket") and lift it right out
-A short work week due to the holiday

Goodnight all ...

Thankful today,
* For time available to instrospectively look at Memorial Day, and what it stands for. To look back over history, when the mass graves of the civil war fallen were "decorated" to a solemn day of memorial to this summer kick off holiday as part of a three day weekend. Remembering those who died in so many wars since...fighting for what they believed in...and remembering those who lost loved ones, not believing in what they were fighting for. And knowing that some things, which have been with us since the beginning, will not change....
* That a friend of mine knows "Road to San Jose..." and is almost home tonight.
* For another birthday dinner - they are coming early this year!
* For honoring my mom, on this HER birthday today... and feeling her presence surrounding me so completely today.
* For learning that she and another of my life's role inspirations, author Rachel Carson (Silent Spring) shared the same day of birth
* For RAIN, in CALIFORNIA, on MEMORIAL day! Our dry parched earth needs it!
* For hubby apparantly fixing what we thought was going to be another huge expense by just tightening a few things on the pool equipment. (I don't EVEN want to mention what the estimate was...)
* For being able to walk, almost pain free for the first time in almost three months!

I am so thankful for this day, which gave me the opportunity to regroup and unpack from my travels before diving headlong into regular life.

I am thankful for this amazing body of mine, with all its complicated systems, which is working just fine.

I am thankful for the good choices I made today. One by one by one!

* For a lovely night out with a group old friends, a birthday tradition for over 20 years and a wonderful reminder of how fortunate we all are that our health and our friendship have endured for another year.
* For the amazing world wide turnout of people today, expressing concern about Monsanto's GMO production.

* For finding a CUTE fold up cane for France
* For photo shoot date with a friend AT THE ZOO tomorrow! Wheee....like a kid again!

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

Namaste: "I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, We are One." by Ram Das

If you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you always got. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. (Albert Einstein)

Thankful for...

"another" Saturday (kids and DH were off yesterday and we're enjoying a longer than usual weekend)

portioning food and watching the scale budge ever so slowly in the right direction

getting into a routine of taking meds, logging food, etc. (4 day "spark" thus far)
