Today I am grateful for:
~ one of my students "turning a corner" after a challenging time
~ having a clean pup with trimmed nails
~ getting better at staying focused on priorities - health has to be number one because everything else is dependent on that!
~ forgiving myself when I inevitably (but less often) lose focus
~ sunshine & rain
~ many more blessings than I could ever list
namaste,
sherrie

My oldest daughter, Clare, has a birthday today!

I've been a mom for 23 years!

My friend's son, Seth, is coming home from Afghanistan in October.

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

Grateful this evening
* For hearing my dad laugh for the first time in a month.
* For Percocet relieving his pain (and probably making him high...thus the laugher!)
* For assisted living contract signed, and relief all the way around
* For the best watermelon I've had all year. Finally a good one! THANK YOU Whole Foods!
* For the nearby 97,000+ acre fire being 9d2% contained. And that 5000, of over 8000 brave firefighters from all over the nation, have been able to return to their families.
* That my 11 year old granddaughter is doing her MMA black belt testing this weekend, and is SO ready for it.
* The health of ALL my family!

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Making it through a really tough week
-Strength, of which I have a great deal
-Perseverance, always
-Being a survivor from long past, which means I know I will make it through this eventually
-Planting an Autumn Blaze maple tree in the front yard yesterday - a memorial tree that Beth and I talked about 2 years ago when we had to have two trees downed due to disease
-Using my own hands to pick the tree out, carry it safely home, shovel the hole and plant it with lots of love and nourishment, including some of Beth's ashes
-A long, long walk today in nature; exactly what I needed

YAY for Sat Grats!
* That I am home safely from a 12 hour road trip today!
* That my girlfriend got a Mi-Ki puppy (the cutest dog breed ever!) who will probably end up smaller than my 5 pounder!
* For my dog continuing to do her job (bringing joy to people) well
* For the huge fire (98,000 acres) being almost contained, thanks to valiant efforts and rain!
* For my life...with all its ups and downs...imperfectly perfect.

Grateful, as always
* For roses and gardenias still blessing my yard with fragrance
* For windows that close and air conditioning after the winds shifted and the air was solid smoke much of the day.
* For the perseverance and courage of those 8000+ firefighters working to save our local homes and forests
* For my clean, fluffy, nail trimmed dog, my sweet little Tiger Lily
* For road trip tomorrow (5 hours each way!( with a friend to pick up a rescue dog (same breed as mine) for her.
* for clean sheets waiting.

AND for Maha safely making it to her new destination in life.

Grateful for
* getting to bed early and awakening after 3 hours sleep and made major steps in getting office organized. Now, at 2 am, ready to go back to sleep, but loving the progress I made!
* For my sweet little Tiger Lily getting comfortable around big dogs again. They won't ALL step on her, and she doesn't have to bark whenever she sees one!
* For living in a neighborhood, where I can walk the streets, any time, day or night, and feel safe and comfy....and will usually rung into someone else, doing the same thing!
* Cooler weather.
* That the huge fire is now 35% contained.
* For my step daughter's friends
* For the human body...all shapes and sizes, ages, and abilities. What miracles we all are!

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Fall, my favorite season (never long enough for me, but I'll take what I can get)
-Cooler temps/lower humidity, as I see it making a difference in my energy levels
-Being brave and walking back into the hospice house all by myself to start getting the meal going
-Being able to focus more on the peacefulness of hospice house, the appreciative family and friends and serving dinner, rather than the details of what happened there with me
-My company making a donation for my time - shopping, cooking and serving the meal, all of which I really wanted
-Strength training today, a light session to start out with since it's been quite awhile

Greetings to each gratitude friend!

September 22
For Christy the wordsmith,
who taught me the meaning of the
word mentor
today.

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

Thankful today for many, many things…among them
* My dad's health care plan pulling together. (Pain management plan seems to be reasonably effective. Surgery scheduled. Follow up care in a SNF, then at almost 93, he will move to an assisted living facility… HIS choice.)
* The relief that I, and my siblings feel, that he is comfortable with his decision, and getting excited about making new friends, and having someone available 24/7 for emergencies!
* The BRAVEST people in the world, the 4936 men AND women, battling the King Fire. Raging down cliffs and canyons about 25-30 miles from here… Grown to almost 80,000 acres and only 10% contained.
* For this video, taken from a spot about 5 miles east of my home…which shows the incredible pyrocumulus cloud formation. Hauntingly beautiful and simultaneously frightening. But puts it in perspective.
vimeo.com/106467993
* That I am still breathing. With all the smoke in the air, it is miraculous that life still goes on.
* For a hopeful meeting with my attorney today. Resolution may be underway!
* For my step daughter's friends, who have included me in their group going to the Out of the Darkness walk in San Francisco this weekend. (Maha and friends, want to join us??)

Today I am grateful for:
~ walking, biking AND gardening today
~ re-prioritizing my health as number 1 (following the idea of the airlines who say you need to put on your own gas mask before trying to help others.) I've had it high on the list for a long time and I've made progress, but it needs to be number one now.
~ nice phone conversation with oldest daughter
~ nice conversation with hubby
~ my home
~ many more blessings than I could ever list
namaste,

Grateful tonight, amidst the smoky air…
* For the courageous heroes we call firefighters, who are risking their lives to save others', their property, and the beautiful mountains to the east of me.
* For memories of Stumpy Meadows, Union Valley Reservoir, Wright's Lake, American River Canyon, Ice House, and all the places i frequented that will be forever changed as a result. They are stored in that special place in my heart.
* For making progress with legal work…
* For garage door being fixed.
* For a brainstorm when it came to helping my dad long distance. A HOTEL ROOM! To keep him from heat stroke or exhaustion. He was ready for ER this afternoon!
* For relapses in grief. Which remind me of all the love I felt for my husband and my step daughter… Again, the cleansing tears.

Grateful tonight
* That I was able to find legal paperwork that had been misplaced.
* For making progress on my "homework"
* For straightening out mix up in communication
* For my neighbor's son, and the other "hotshots" who are so diligently trying to get control of the wildfire that is destroying beautiful forests, old swimming holes, campgrounds, and hiking trails that I used to frequent. Only 20 miles away, and already ravaged over 12,000 acres. Started only 2 days ago. Only 5% contained!
* For temps finally cooling down at night...

woke to an accidental phone call at 4 am.
I knew the sound of the breath
was my oldest daughter. Her sweet snuffles
as they've always been, as they
were when she slept as a baby by my side.

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 tonight…
* For following Stephanie, and feeling the pain along side her as she tackles so many of the "firsts" with grace and dignity. It DOES get easier, Steph, though it never goes away…
* For again, our courageous and gutsy firefighters, batting a huge, out of control blaze in the Sierra foothills, only about 20 miles from here.
* That none of them has yet been injured, though a whole team had a close call
* For one more huge step in getting my life organized and in a semblance of order
* For a clean and fluffy Tiger Lily, who smells SO good after her bath!
* For my dad knowing, and being willing to do what needs to be done. Seeking out assisted living arrangements now, recognizing he is having too much physical difficulty living independently at this point in time.
* For my sister, who has been there with him, to help him with the plans.

I am grateful for:

-Getting through another first gracefully; my first birthday in 13 years without Beth
-Doing well picking the best way to spend the day (driving (always calming for me) a few hours to be in new surroundings and special beauty for strenuous hiking for several hours)
-The PERFECT hiking weather, a sunny, crisp fall-like day!!
-Positive hopes for getting through tomorrow (6-month anniversary of her death) and Wednesday (would have been her birthday) as gracefully
-My wonderful friends who were/are a large part of my saving grace
-My amazing little sister who's there with me all the way, which is pretty challenging since she lives halfway across the country
-Great neighbors (who made some pretty awesome cookies for me)
-The comfort and safety of my home, with my kitties

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
-- Buddha

Good afternoon,

It's 95 degrees and the 2.5 mile bike ride to the library felt more like 20.5 miles! I'm letting my body cool down before I head back, and it's a perfect time to contemplate some of what I'm thankful for~~

~ I'm completely blown away by the contributions I'm receiving from friends to assist with my god daughter's educational cost

~ needing to print airline and concert vouchers and happy that public libraries offer free computer services

~ having fun following Kathy's exploits on the dating front (watch out world!) -- it's a happy way to keep up with her

~ thrilled that my health is good, all things considered, and that I feel vibrant and alive

~ so grateful for the support and love of friends during this time of transition

Blessed be,
xox

It comes from an indomitable will.
