Grateful this Tuesday night
* That I have been so busy that I had no idea until this morning that the midwest and south were once again being blasted with storms and tornadoes....and yes, with the rest of you, that Maha is safe. (Was anyone else here in danger or affected?)
* For two full consecutive days of tracking and staying within my calorie range.
* For being able to walk two miles today.
* For fatigue related to sugar detox, calorie reduction and increased exercise...sleep soon!
* For ALMOST completing my docent training at the Zoo Sanctuary...tomorrow I lead a monitored/evaluated tour. And Friday an information table. THEN, I can work independently! YAY!
* For a birthday lunch with a very dear, longtime friend. (hers, not mine...)

Today I am grateful for
running into Leaf and her 1 year old at the PO
taking the time to stop and talk
remembering the practice
of taking in the good.

Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can."

Today, I'm grateful for:

* This amazing community. It's terrific to see new posters and wonderful to see the return of others, like Maha. Welcome back! I get so filled with joy when I read everyone's gratitudes.

* Motivation to write my books. Fear has had me tied up and held captive, but I am slowly breaking its binds. I'm going to hug it, once my hands are free.

* Gifts from the Universe. Like an unexpected, unasked for deadline extension, or hearing exactly the right thing I needed to at an OA meeting.

* The diverse, crisp, delicious smells of spring. My nose is having a party! And my whole body wants to dance with joy.

There are so many blessings - too many to count - and for this I'm grateful too.

Grateful tonight
* To have survived yet another incredibly busy day with the grandkids...
* Turn around in mood and behavior of the 12 year old after "discussion" this afternoon
* Their health, and able to cope with their schedules
* Amazing cloud formations with glimpses of deep blue skies, against the green of the grass and color of flowers.
* For not feeling desperate...and not feeling the need to settle for anything less than what I know is right for me.

Good evening,

Tonight I say (as my mom used to) "to hell with it" -- I'm posting even if there are consequences. Thankful~~

~ for visionaries and teachers like Terry Tempest Williams
www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=5785

~ a shuffling armadillo neighbor, who jumped straight up in the air one day when I tapped him(?) with a broom handle to get his(?) attention

~ a bowl of Cherrios-type cereal with banana, serious comfort food

~ making a tough decision about a party, but feeling good about it

~ tomorrow is a new day, rife with possibilities

Blessed be,
xox

"The garbage got into the water one piece at a time," Pregracke said earlier this year. "And that's the only way it's going to come out." -Chad Pregrake...cleaning up the rivers!

Thankful for clean water and all those people who work for it.

Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can."
-- H.H. the Dalai Lama

Heroes are people who do what they can.
-- Romain Rolland (slightly altered to be gender neutral)

Good afternoon,

I'm in the university library, working on the final assignments for the semester and couldn't resist the opportunity to take a Time-Out and stop in again today!

With palms joined~~

~ ATransformation, ABurris, KaliGirl, SLaSalle, MTRachel, BecomingOne, Iam1w/every1, Happy Destiny, Nonie, PeacefulOne, DollyBabe, CrystalJem, SlayingDragons, GirlInBrazil, Mazzy, MissViv, BlessedDaily -- the regulars and not-so-regulars who ALL add vibrancy and support and compassion with each and every appearance to give thanks and who make this community such a special place!

~ feeling, with about an hour's work here at the library, that I've got the strategy developed and some templates created for the writing

~ happy with poems that I wrote and submitted last week; I am interested to see the feedback from the prof on Monday

~ feeling easier today about some heaviness I've been experiencing with a friend

~ not experiencing as much pain in my upper arm and knee...and not noticing any today as I cycled to campus

Blessed be,
xox

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
-- Denis Waitley

Good evening!

I have been closely monitoring the internet usage, and as of this date I am not over the KBs allowed up to this point, so I decided to pop in to share the joy of community in this wonderful practice~~

~ helping out an attorney friend who needs a Spanish interpreter

~ going through a dark spell, but knowing that with some time I will be fine

~ classes are over and I have only to hand in a (multiple pages, complex assignments) portfolio to finish the semester

~ I finally completed and submitted the application for graduation and the check

~ Count-down time is approaching for The Trip

Blessed be,
xox

Crystal - hope all is well...

On this Monday morning, I continue to be blessed and am grateful for
- emoticon started Easter Sunday afternoon - hoping a farmer's saying is true... if it rains Easter Sunday, it will rain for the next 7 Sundays (we could definitely use it...)
- morning smoothie
- emoticon season - Sunday with DH, Wednesday with the girls
- a week to settle into the retirement of colleagues
- emoticon to schedule meetings

Life is GOOD - Here's to living it Daily and Gratefully!

Monday... I am terrified but at the same time I recognize how much I have to be grateful for:
- people who care
- doctors and nurses who are compassionate
- an empty bed when it was needed
- inner strength and fortitude I didn't think I possessed
- tears of release
- Spark People

Monday, Monday...

Busy week but wanted to share this:


A thousand flowers in springtime,
falling leaves in autumn,
Gentle rain in summer,
snow in winter ,
If your mind is not cluttered by unnecessary things,

This is the best season of your life.

Mary Lind

Glad that you are safe Vicki.
Hugs to Kathy.
Peace to all.

not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Thought I'd drop by before getting deep into studies. Grateful for many things.

~In spite of the up and down emotions, I made it through yesterday without injuring anyone
~Well, it wasn't too difficult because I spent most of the day alone
~Thank-filled for the sacrifice of the One who left His beautiful Home so that I am never alone even when I feel alone
~Thoroughly enjoyed no meat no crust spinach quiche for lunch
~Thoroughly enjoyed my tall glass of cranberry juice with tonic water after evening service
~Watched an old Micky Rooney movie in the afternoon and laughed
~Pixie poodle was fairly good company until yesterday afternoon when her owners took her back
~The alarm of the electric fence on top of our 7 foot wall around our yard abruptly woke me very early Sat. morning. A bit fear-full I walked around the parameters with the dogs and a bee bee rifle that I don't know how to shoot (against the law to own bullets here!) and found no signs. Went up on tower and looked down; saw a guy in front of the neighbor's house just sitting on a motorcycle - wondered if he had a burn from the shock or if it was a bird or the neighbor's tree that set off the alarm. Text to DH in the next state in the boonies who may not get it until he travels back this afternoon. Relieved that no troublemaker was IN our yard!
~Halfway through present course and beginning a "fun" project of making my family tree for three generations
~Tongue infection that began over a week ago is finally improving
~Started a new eating plan on Friday and wrote my blog yesterday

Thankful tonight...
* For making it through my first Easter without my husband. Another rough one.... But I survived.
* For identifying triggers
* For my amazing neighbors, who have carried me along this journey
* That son and family got home safely from Nicaragua last night, and luggage caught up with them today
* For being able to graciously allow them to catch up after their trip (he leaves town on business in the am, kids go back to school, and their grass was knee high when they got home) and without expectations of spending Easter with them...
* For our relationship being SO improved after honest confrontation a few months ago.
* For anticipation of events in my own life this week...
