Grateful
* For the endurance I have been able to dig up just to maintain routine for grandkids
* For somewhat of a resolution of conflict
* Friend's grandson was not killed, nor did he kill anyone else, when he decided to pass another car in a reckless manner. ICU, Fractured ribs and vertebrae, collapsed lung, and LOTS of cuts and bruises, but alive. With good prognosis for full recovery.
* For supportive friends during difficult times
* That my sister is finally getting to experience the joys of traveling!
* Continued healing and health restoration

Happy Halloween!

Well, I'd love to find "True Holiness" in church tomorrow, Sandra, but since that's not likely, I'll take the opportunity to participate in a good choir. Happy to be here posting thanksgiving~~

~ the university library where I am at the moment, a wonderful resource on so many levels

~ delicious breakfast of Bob's Red Mill hot cereal with frozen berries, pecans, banana, and kefir

~ Iyengar yoga class, always a good addition to my day, with an extra benefit of an invitation to pick nubile young turnip and mustard greens from their garden

~ my new raspberry down vest keeping me warm and making me feel good

~ the possibility that acupuncture can help a health challenge

Blessed be,
xox

"The spirit of her invincible heart guided her through the shadows."

Good afternooon,

Gratitude in abundance~~

~ chores accomplished: wrapped and mailed book, went to bank, dropped off recycling, bought tickets for Sunday concert

~ went to funny movie with friends today -- Goosebumps, starring Jack Black

~ sauteed kale with onoins and then added a couple eggs and salsa

~ I'm with Kali on the beautiful moon in recent nights (even since its dramatic fullness)

~ confirmed delightful Sunday plans with a friend -- morning capuccino, then church at True Holiness Saint's Center, known for outstanding black gospel music; lunch and do homework together, then afternoon to symphony for Beethoven's 9th Symphony! (Sandra will be able to guess who the friend is!)

Blessed be,

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Another great day for exercise, heavy on the cardio, as usual; I, too, need to work back in to regular strength training
-Gearing up to fly to see my nieces and nephews for a 3-day weekend (was talked into going for Halloween by my 13-yr-old nephew); short but fun trip
-Sunshine and fall temps today!
-Getting my free yearly credit reports from all three bureaus and getting through half of them
-Working being at a much slower pace, including a delay in launching two new funds which takes huge pressure off
-My dear friend who is watching over my kitty girls while I'm gone
-My comfortable bed, calling me right about now

Goodnight all,
Stephanie

Be a good steward of your gifts. Protect your time. Feed your inner life. Avoid too much noise. Read good books, have good sentences in your ears. Be by yourself as often as you can. Walk. Take the phone off the hook. Work regular hours.

Good evening,

I'm happy to be among you all tonight. I've been posting in the "original" thread where Kathy and I first met. Unlike Sherrie and Stephanie (and me in the past), I haven't had the emotional juice to post on both threads...and it's good to be with those old friends! It's also nice to be with YOU old friends lol!

I'm counting my blessings~~

~ hung out at the Arkansas River on this spectacular fall day, reading Collected Stories of Gabriel Garcia Marquez for my class, Literature of the Americas. Read and discussed Pablo Neruda in the last class (are you familiar with his Odes -- BRILLIANT!)

~ thoroughly enjoyed another screening of Analyze This, a comedy with Robert deNiro as a Mob boss and Billy Crystal as his therapist.

~ looking forward to Thanksgiving with Sandra and her beloved -- dear friends, good food, gatherings, live music, and did I mention dear friends?

~ little-by-little, getting more consistent with strength training

~ aware of the importance of cardio and loving bicycling, I'm planning to price shipping my bike from CA, where it's stored at a friend's -- ideas anyone?

Good night, my friends, blessed be!

Gratitudes this Friday
* Grandaughters are SO delightful
* Son is doing so well professionally
* DIL loves my son so much
* Allowing gentle tears as memories of my husband flooded me (Well, some of them were not too gentle, but still cleansing)
* Figuring out how to set up and activate new phone all by myself.
* Letting go of MORE possessions, feeling totally detached. Spending two months on the couch, and pretty much only in the family room, kitchen or bathroom reminded me how little we really need.

for connection with a friend, brief but warm
for means to hire help for outside clearing
for less emotional backlash from acknowledging inabilities
for aha moments and whatever brings them
to be learning with almost every step

Grateful tonight
* For a thunderstorm that blew through our area...and dropped a little rain.
* For incredible sunsets three consecutive nights!
* For controlling a meltdown when I was at the Sacramento Baroque Society performance last night....the first time without my husband. I missed him so terribly!
* For the courage to finally donate/dispose of some of his most personal possessions.
* For finding a Costco Cash card in a stack of old cards he had rubber banded together. Worth $409.10!
* For feeling like he is still taking care of me after all this time.
* That the antibiotics have dramatically reduced the swelling and abdominal pain... and that there is no evidence of more fluid collection.

Tonight I am grateful for:

-The lessons I've learned in listening that have turned me into an even better listener (a dying art)
-An opportunity this weekend to help a friend in a small way; sincerely grateful that I was in a position to do so
-An entire weekend of beautiful fall weather!
-The luxury of the moon roof on my car; something I was insistent on when I got it because I know how much I used it and loved it on my last car; used it a LOT this weekend
-A nearby park that was perfect for a fall walk this afternoon
-Getting my garage door serviced yesterday after 3-4 weeks of intermittent problems that I knew would only get worse
-Sunday night at home hanging with my kitty girls
-Always, my health

Thankful on this Friday afternoon...
* That cooler weather is in the forecast.
* For Southern CA getting drenched with rains (not that it hasn't been problematic for them....but at least the reservoirs will fill some)
* For the close relationships with my next door neighbors. They have been my rocks since my husband died. They have stepped up beyond what I thought was humanly possible...
* For all the meals we have shared, the laughter and the tears...a true adopted family
* For my remodel FINALLY being completed. And for a friend who has offered to be my advocate to straighten out some things contractor did NOT do properly.
* For my hair growing out long enough that I can finally use a larger curling iron.

grateful
for laughter brought by a surprise downpour, short but oh so sweet
for function without sleep
for steps to take while feeling out of sorts
to have easy-to-access medical care
sometimes anxiety can bring about change

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 total exhaustion...meaning I was more active over the weekend than I have been in MONTHS!
* Being strong enough to return to volunteer work, albeit limited for now.
* That I have new sprinkler heads, valves, drains, and so on....hopeful for big wet winter!
* That the remodel project is ALMOST completed!
* For a special friend, who is a retired contractor, who is stepping up to be my advocate. He feels I was totally taken advantage of and wants to make things right to prevent what he sees as potential problems.
* For waking to the sounds of birds.

~~~Kathy~~~

Scales lie. Pants don't lie.

grateful
for the comfort of morning ritual
sunrise is quiet
for easy nourishment
there's time to gear up for a more difficult afternoon
to have slept despite significant discomfort

grateful
for fall sneaking in
the possibility of rain is closer
our little river, gone shallow, babbles despite terrible drought
for the privilege of living in the midst of redwood groves
no one's been hurt by falling trees
