Good thanksgiving with my parents in VA.

Good time with old missionary friends over the weekend.

Glad to be at home this week and packing like crazy to leave for Brazil next!

-Getting more leaves raked today (endless supply with 5 huge old oaks in my yard)
-A raking tool that Beth got me several years ago that is still very helpful raking leaves
-My daily meditation book on healing from loss

We posted gratitudes 140 times
what a group we are!
I remembered to think of three for each day
I'd say, a good month!

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

Today I am grateful for:

-Being able to post last night's gratitudes this morning!!! :-)
-Being so comfortable curled up in bed last night with 3 kitties and a good book that I drifted off to sleep early
-Getting through my first Thanksgiving without Beth; doing exactly what I wanted to do
-"Lost On The River, The New Basement Tapes," a compilation CD done by a small group of musicians (including Elvis Costello) all working with Dylan lyrics found from 1967 (a lost box) - quite a project and the perfect music to listen to on Thanksgiving without Beth (she put out a CD long ago titled "Beth Loves Bob" that had all Dylan songs)
-Gifting Beth's best friend with the CD for her birthday; the perfect gift for so many reasons (and inexpensive is always nice)
-Learning an entirely new way of prioritizing things in my life this year
-My three kitties; they ground me in so many ways

-Plans to see an early movie with a friend tonight

It feels like forever since I've been here! I've only had phone access to the Internet, and for what ever reason, cannot get to this page. So I've simply been noting gratitude in my mind...all day every day. But tonight in writing, I can say I am thankful
- for an early thanksgiving celebration with friends and family, since I will be the only one in town this week.
- for the abundance of food filling my kitchen
- for NOT injuring my knee when I took a ghastly fall in the kitchen.
- watching my slick kitchen floor almost take down my sister and my DIL in the same night...which prompted me to take the action that my husband and I were planning to do when we first bought this house.
- for the first contractor showing up as scheduled..now waiting for bid to replace dangerous flooring in house, and to update kitchen.
- for the pain of the holiday season being much softer this year
- for knowing how much love and support completely surrounds me.
- for all of you and this amazing team. My home base. My touchstone.

~~~Kathy~~~

Scales lie. Pants don't lie.

If the only prayer you ever say is "thank you" that shall suffice. ~~~~~~ Meister Eckhart

Today, I'm grateful for ~

emoticon the beautiful decay of what was once useful, but does not serve anymore, and its release back to where it came from so it can be transformed into something new, something useful once again.

emoticon to emoticon learning to release fear and replace it with faith that the universe has my best interests at heart, that I am cared for, safe and secure.

emoticon daily walks around my neighborhood, which give me an opportunity to be present and conscious of all my gratitudes, as well as an opportunity to connect with a friend or two.

emoticon So many blessings, too many to count, and for this I'm grateful too.

grateful for my ears and my eyes and my heart
for music and deep listening

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Having Plans A, B and C in place for Thanksgiving day
-Scheduling a massage for the weekend after Thanksgiving (healthy reward)
-Being able to help another friend who's going through a loss of another type
-Relearning the "art of listening" after my own loss and being able to apply it well in helping others who just need an ear (sans advice)
-Work going well at the moment
-My sweet kitties; they all three give me unconditional love, companionship, laughter and so many other things

Many of you have prayed specially for my wandering boy over the past year...

He had started a program at a therapeutic school this week. Super grateful that all the obstacles that had prevented his enrollment earlier were pushed right out of the way in a few short days.

This is the beginning of a new, fresh opportunity for our boy and we can only says thanks again and again for how it has all come together - finally.

grateful
to find familiar faces here and inspiring gratitudes
for breathing room right now
for the luxury of a nap
for the calming of spasms leading to some freedom of movement
for the gift of calm patience in the face of frustrating therapies

The body is a sacred garment.
It's your first and last garment; it is what you enter life in and what you depart life with,
and it should be treated with honor.

Grateful today
* For an amazing massage last night. I found the guy! David. The BEST!
* Tiger Lily bathed and ready to travel
* Easy fix for IRS inquiry
* Cool and cloudy day, with a 50% possibility of desperately needed rain in the next day or so...
* GOOD coffee after a horrible batch of beans clogged the machine. All clean and good stuff for sipping!
* Healing continues

All who served
My grandpa in WW I

My middle child, my daughter,
Ingrid is 21 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

* A $17 dollar "foot massage" in 45 minutes.
* Lunch with my sister today.
* GREAT early Thanksgiving plans.
* Seeing my dad in two days, and hooking up with former travel mates while I am out of town!
* Feeling totally renewed and healed from trauma of recent losses.

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)

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are there.
-- Yasutani Roshi

MUCHOS SALUDOS AMIGOS MIOS!!!

It's simply wonderful to be among you...and to follow my sangha sister Sandra! Life is full and always interesting (even when it's not!). I'm deeply grateful~~

~ I have found a new place to live with a fascinating woman in her spacious 4-bedroom home at the end of a quiet street with gardens and lawn. I will pay $100/month (down $50 from my current rent)

~ Adelaida, my Latina soul sister, and I are closer than ever now that I've moved out of their home (living 24/7 with a hormone-ridden adolescent [my beautiful god daughter] turns out to NOT be my favorite thing to do)

~ my diet is full of wholesome organic fare; the options for fresh and organic have expanded even since last year

~ I had a fun day with my future "landlady" Zulinda, both at her home, as well as out for lunch, when we were joined by her former husband, now friend

~ I have managed to maintain a consistent meditation and pranayama practice (we're talking quantity, not quality though, sadly)

~ I met a lovely woman, Anita from Broken Arrow, OK, who is here for a two-week Spanish intensive -- Adelaida is instructing her in Spanish through the local university

~ I have found a local source for freshly baked sour dough whole wheat seeded bread

~nine friends have committed to helping with costs of my god daughter's quinceañera celebration so far

~ I am looking forward to hosting an Irish friend (also a friend of Sandra's) here in Ecuador in January

And the beat goes on!

Blessed be,javascript:void(0)

On this Monday morning, I continue to be blessed and am grateful for
- Chopra meditations on Desire
- a 'free' day to catch up on work before a hectic week
- the (potentially) last day of a long and luxurious fall
- productive weekend of yardwork
- cleaning out the freezer and beginning to enjoy the bounty of forgotten goodies

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

"Be present in all things and thankful for all things" Maya Angelou

"If you laugh you change; and when you change the world changes." Shilpa Shah

"Joy is prayer. Joy is strength. Joy is love. Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy."
Mother Teresa (1910-1997); Founder Of The Missionaries Of Charity
