Tonight, on this last night of June, I am grateful for:

-Blooming stelladora bushes in front and back yards adding bright splashes of yellow
-Being able to work from home today and taking full advantage by getting the financial performance piece of my project dealt with while I had total silence! (numbers take focus!!)
-Getting three more packages mailed off today, slowly but surely it's getting done
-Another turtle message today; (along with that a.m. visit from a red fox in my back yard this weekend), paying full attention
-Getting all three litter boxes totally cleaned out; tomorrow are kitty manicures, I hope!!
-A short work week with the holiday
-My best friend from Amarillo driving in on Thursday for 3 days!! She was a hospice nurse for many years so she totally "gets" me

Goodnight all,
Stephanie

Grateful tonight
* For my best friend…we have been through SO much together for over 30 years! Hard to believe…
* For spending the day with her family, some from out of town I hadn't seen since my husband died, and some I hadn't seen since his service. Bittersweet..
* Surviving this past year….
* Gardenia bush in full bloom
* Surprise text messages, which make me laugh.
* Stephanie's strength during this difficult time….

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Getting the back yard and water gardens back into good shape; a friend offered help and we both worked HARD for 3-1/2 hours in humid weather but it looks great
-Knowing that Beth was smiling down on her beloved water gardens
-Seeing a gorgeous red fox trotting through my back yard this morning, then watching him jump the fence and trot through my neighbor's yard
-Being able to take a LONG, HOT shower after getting totally demolished by the humidity; it was what I consider to be a religious experience :-)
-My warm and comfortable bed with a solid roof over my head - my home

Goodnight all,
Stephanie

the power of a family to come together for a joyful wedding

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."

Grateful for
* For a lovely afternoon in a very relaxed setting.
* Courage to swallow my pride, and own up to something I did that was unconscionable.
* For friends who I can trust to share confidences
* For my sister. What a gift
* For a sense of humor, despite all…
* For my husband….after years of laughing together, I can picture him now, rolling his eyes, and laughing at me (which makes things a little better….)

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Having a really good time yesterday celebrating a dear friend's birthday with she and her family; awesome food and a great family that I enjoy hanging with
-Not just totally losing it when I came home last night to find a branch from MY oak tree that had fallen and completely shattered the rear window of Beth's car (that was due to be towed this morning); Beth had a car in our driveway for almost 9 years without incident and now it was hit twice in 8 days
-Only a small cut when I was taping plastic over the rear window with duct tape in the pouring rain
-A good walk and talk with another dear friend tonight

A day off, a day to just let one thing happen after another.
A great hike yesterday with two dear friends.
World Cup Soccer!

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

LOTS to be thankful for…
* The best eggs Benedict in the world yesterday! Shared with a dear friend
* A hard, sweaty workout later to burn off some of those calories! (And a very light dinner….)
* Having the courage to finally meet some of the Match.com men I have been communicating with..That is HUGE for me!
* Seeing my dear husband smiling down, watching me in amusement…
* Spending solitary moments on "the bench" almost every day. What a gift!
* My son and DIL and what great parents they are!

Has it been nearly a week since I have been here? It has been a busy one. Filled with all kinds of things, especially gratitude
* For an amazing visit with my dad, extended family, and old friends
* For his GREAT new "roommate" (a 36 year old PT aid, who loves spending time with my dad watching classic movies, poker, golf, baseball and so on… And who even goes to church with him. Shy, unassuming, and grateful himself to be saving money on rent and "living in a resort"!
* For mockingbirds waking me every morning.
* For my broken and damaged body, that still functions, despite all.
* For spending the evening with a long time friend, dinner and HD encore of Metropolitan Opera's Rigaletto. It was contemporary, and weird, but it worked. And was fabulous.
* For exciting plans for next week!
