Today I am grateful for:

-Making good use of fresh fruits and veggies from weekend Trader Joe's shop
-Finding dried fruits (UNSWEETENED & UNSULFURED!!) at TJ's for my Sedona hiking trip (dried flattened bananas, bing cherries and pineapple rings), with organic raw almonds
-Coming up on (and hoping I remember) my 10-YEAR SPARKVERSARY! Wow! Is that really possible? Again, grateful to my company's wellness initiatives that got me started here to begin with
-Wonderful recent phone catchup with Maha ... always a delight!!
-Calling Enterprise to make sure I was covered as my driver's license expired this month. Found out the expired AND temporary will not cut it; also need passport, ALL THREE - really?
-Smaller mini-cardio workouts; not perfect, but they are said to be as effective
-Total anticipation of FitBit tracking on my hiking trip and hoping I blow its little computer-like mind away!! :-) emoticon

Hey my dear thanks giving friends,

I'm still alive-and-kicking. Since my emotional energy has been flagging I've been posting only on the gratitude thread that Rebecca manages (the original). But I'm always here as well in spirit~~

~ a WONDERFUl coming-together with Sandra, her ever lovin', and Fritzie, another dear friend last night

~ enjoyed every bite of the veritable feast Sandra prepared at Fritzie's place last night

~ we enjoyed various Playing for Change musical offerings, making use of an awesome portable speaker (music is SUCH a salve for the wounded spirit!)

~ meeting with a friend later today to explore more ideas for community involvement (he is a progressive Christian minister and may have some resources to share)

~ considering joining a local church choir (check it out: True Holiness Saint's Center, as recommended by Sandra and Fritzie!) since music is such good medicine for me (we'll see after I visit)

Blessed be,
xox

Tonight I am very grateful for so much, but this is what calls to me:

-The Arboretum once again doing my favorite thing and opening from 7-10 p.m. to let us hike their trails under the beautiful moon
-Finding another friend (of Beth's) who loved going there and could keep up with me as we trekked through the woods and fields for over two hours
-Headlamps and small flashlights, as needed; all gifts from Beth, so we decided she was our guiding light tonight when the stunning moon was blocked by the trees
-Messages from many directions, and the openness to take them in
-A wonderful dream yesterday morning
-Hot showers after long walks in the woods
-Anticipation of a great night of sleep after a poor one last night; between last night and all the hiking, followed by a hot shower ... calling me now

Goodnight all,
Stephanie

Connie/DollyBabe - I am very sorry to hear your news. My thoughts and prayers are with you! I've had TWO friends who went through the same thing with NO CANCER, so I'm very hopeful!

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Trader Joe's and Petsmart shops done (both overdue) on the way home from work
-Neighborhood association newsletters passed out to entire cul-de-sac (also overdue)
-Good exercise today; these mini-workouts are working well for me - did 15 minutes brisk walking this afternoon at work, another 10 delivering newsletters, then 20 minutes on stationary bike - it adds up!!
-Got a simple, healthy dinner made (albeit a bit late), with leftovers for another few meals
-Met my challenge goals today
-Always, always, my health and the ability I have to move this body (and that I enjoy doing it)
-My sweet, patient kitties

Goodnight all,
Stephanie

So good to be here to say good morning! You spark me with your grats. I love your "being's", Sherrie! Sorry that Happy is leaving for awhile and sending some hopeful vibes & prayers his way. You gotta do what you gotta do! That is where I've been, too and the time and energy invested in those things is not a regret.

~almost 5 months of caring for other's needs and I did selfceare & self-soothing that got me to this side
~my mother is soon going to be at peace in death; I am glad for her and for my Dad who will be first in line to greet her if he can
~my husband continues to heal and gain his strength
~I am well on my way to getting through the papers on my desk and beginning to feel somewhat organized
~I continue to learn
~I discovered what a wonder woman my "baby" sister is
~Today my helper has come to catch up the work I tend to neglect (partly because I know she will help me with it
~The birds whistling and chirping in my yard; we keep seeing hummingbirds at our feeders
~Knowing that I am and have what I need to do what I need to do and be who I am meant to be at this moment in time
~For my senses and my sensitivity that it keeps me in tune with others and helps me know when to take time for myself

Tonight I am grateful for:

-A really good weekend that put me in a good place to walk into a mess at work this morning!
-Walking for hours at the Renaissance Festival yesterday; hadn't gone in years
-Prioritization skills that have saved me from lots of unnecessary stress
-My favorite bean salad from our cafeteria at work that has saved me after a very long, late work day
-My sweet, loving kitties who never get mad or act out when I fail to treat them like diva girls; they just provide that unconditional love (trust me, they are mostly spoiled)
-Sleeping better this week; last week was a mess, likely due to three difficult dates in 5 days

Thankful this Monday morning for ....

~ continued beautiful fall weather
~ learning about our weeds before inadvertently doing something that will propagate them
~ addressing a troubling medical condition (reluctantly)
~ a competent and annoyingly persistent internist who keeps me going
~ knowing sometimes I am my own worst enemy
~ a day of rest after a fun but tiring weekend
~ maybe not loving what is but accepting it while taking steps to make improvements
~ all is well ... life is extraordinarily good

Shine,
Sandra

for an extra boost of energy yesterday
for some sleep, though very restless
it's finally get-ready-to-go day
for freedom to visit family any time
to disconnect for a couple of weeks

After being absent all month...spending much of it on the couch with my phone rather than than sitting up in this messy office...I am back. And as always, grateful

* For these past 6 1/2 weeks (Which feel like 6 1/2 months!) and the many lessons I have learned
* For being able to take "days off" after finding out after the fact that I did too much on any given day.
* For learning I don't have to be superwoman.
* For friends that have stepped up and been there during these painful lonely days, and for those who have not. THEY have taught me about loving without expectations....
* For the amazing healing potential of the human body.
* For having whom I consider to be the best surgeon in all of Northern CA...
* For my little Tiger Lily, and that she weighs under 6 pounds! If she was bigger, I don't think I could manage her!
* That I am able to finally sleep in my own bed.
* For my incredibly beautiful remodeled home.


~~~Kathy~~~

Scales lie. Pants don't lie.

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

Today I am grateful for:

-A weekend of sunshine, fresh air, cool fall weather, open moon roof, open windows and nature; I couldn't have ordered anything more needed for my birthday
-Having a wonderful weekend, despite it being a hard time; Beth and I celebrated the MONTH of September with our birthdays 4 days apart; throw the 1-1/2 year anniversary of her death in the middle and there you have it
-The best visit I've had with my mother in years
-My mother's health as she nears 73; very fortunate given her history and very needed, as her husband is blind and likely on his 4th bout with cancer (yet to be determined for sure)
-Being abundantly blessed beyond words with dear friends
-Long walk at the lake by myself Saturday, longer walk at the Arboretum with friends Sunday
-Always, my health and my ability to do pretty much what I want physically

grateful
to feel rested
for a cooling trend ahead
it's beach day for S and Grandpa
to be set to cook ahead
for catch up time with an old friend

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.

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Spending the evening with my mother and more time tomorrow, after not seeing her for more than 1-1/2 years
-Her taking me out for a birthday dinner at what used to be me and Beth's favorite restaurant, now mine, and mom loving it also
-Great co-worker friends
-My amazing kitty girls, who quickly remembered their grandma (she calls them her grandkitties)
-My comfortable bed and hopes of sleeping well tonight after a few sketchy nights!

Goodnight all,
Stephanie

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)

grateful
for occasional stubbornness
for willingness to try again
for the wonder of skype with grandkids
for libraries' bounty
for morning's quiet routine
