This evening, the last day of February, I am grateful for:

-A very solid month with exercise
-Another great month with eating
-FINALLY breaking that plateau of mine on the scale (gee, you think the above two things have anything to do with it?)
-Still doing really well with cutting out lots of sugar, but not deprivation by any means
-My sweet kitties, all three of them, but especially Rosie, who I think has lost a bit of weight herself with her self-developed workout plan that I've contributed to (she's the only one who has a few pounds that need to go)
-Work projects in a crazy busy time flowing along smoothly due to my planning and prioritization
-Tea last night with a friend I haven't seen in awhile

Here's to a great March for all of us as we close out February!

Tonight I am grateful for:

-Hearing that an American Muslim group came up with $20K+ for repairs to the St. Louis Jewish cemetery Sandra shared about, hoping it's not fake news
-That Ann, Kathy and their families are all safe in these storms and hope that the hole in Ann's roof is easily repaired
-Having a solid roof over my head (makes my basement leak seem like nothing)
-Good friends
-Ongoing success with staying away from most sugary junk food (my downfall)
-The days whizzing by quickly at work because we're so very busy
-My sweet kitty girls to come home to every night
-Meeting friends to try and new restaurant tomorrow after work
-Always, my health

Profoundly saddened this Monday evening. Hundreds of headstones were knocked over and vandalized in the orthodox Jewish cemetery where my partner's family are buried. Her grandmother whose entire family was killed in the Holocaust was among them. The cemetery is just four blocks form our home. What senseless hatred! How can people be s fearful that they can hate so much? I truly cannot comprehend.

Grateful on yet another rainy day
* That I am safe from the flooding that is pervasive throughout the state. Though close to a river, I am on high ground. with a good roof!
* That son and grandkids are driving almost 8 hours just to be at my dad's big party on Saturday. A HUGE 95th birthday surprise, with a quick turn around.
* New romantic interests...
* Surviving this past week, which was flooded with memories of my "former" life.
* For friends who support me, and remind me to be kinder to myself, not just others
* DIL hanging in...

I've had net problems for days and then in the midst of it all my laptop bit the dust! That's a little punny and a little bit of truth perhaps as we suffer with constant winds and fine dust that gets in everything.

Anyway today I'm glad for some net time with a good speed.
Chance to get caught up on my personal net junk.
Good news from home about a problem.
Glad for my mother's birthday today and her good spirit and great health.
Great lunch with pals this afternoon!

Today I am grateful for:

-Feeling pretty alive again today; 3 years ago on this night, Beth fell in our driveway and the ER doc told us of the likely malignant tumor and it went straight downhill for 26 days from there
-A perfect weather day for tennis and I did it; I went out and met strangers and played doubles for two hours on this gorgeous day
-Despite being rusty, my killer serve made a short appearance and surprised the 3 guys I was playing doubles with, who were very patient with this female, singles player
-Now stretching and on to my massage
-A night planned at home with the three kitty girls and their excellent nursing skills
-This team and each of you; I love how we cheer each other on and give support
-Always, my health; I never want to take it for granted

Today I am grateful for:

-A good grip on my dumping sugary junk, phase I (eventually Diet Coke, my worst habit, will go); baby steps
-The scale granting me acknowledgement on how well I've done
-An action step: joined Meetup tennis group and RSVP'd for this Saturday; I haven't played since Beth got so sick and I miss it
-Getting through work crunches mostly gracefully
-An upcoming 3-day weekend and massage giving me strong motivation
-My FitBit, SparkPeople, Words with Friends, Lumosity and all the tools I use to try and live a healthier life

Today I am grateful for:

-Cardio on the recumbent bike and upper body strength training last night while watching TV
-My sweet Rosie kitty continuing to play fetch with me, up and down the stairs, getting her own little workouts in (I may have created a monster!!) and giving me extra steps
-Finally being excited about cooking and new recipes again; Beth and I used to cook together so I didn't know if I would ever get back to this point
-Indeed, sunshine and warmer temps
-Good temps predicted for upcoming 3-day weekend so I'm planning more outside fun
-Awareness: this is a rough time of year for me, so I am extra careful with self-care

grateful
~for some wonderful time spent with my son
~for an interesting gathering that morphed into sharing beautiful memories of many that left us too soon and are sorely missed
~M vacuumed and dusted in my absence
~for safe driving ahead of a wet and windy storm
~for peaceful quiet with only howling wind and rain on the roof

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.

thankful on Superbowl Sunday
* For the memories of events that occurred on this day in past years... my son and I painting our "first-owned" home together, my husband proposing to me, the tradition of betting with my niece (we started with a nickel when she was three! She's now married and we still do it every year, though it involves dinner at the restaurant of the winners choice!), the parties my hubby and I threw, or went to...
* NOT caring about football, and not feeling the need to watch the game!
* My dad, who is still alive and going strong...turning 95 this month!
* Seventy five invitations printed, addressed and mailed out for the party we are having to celebrate him!
* Safe trip to Costa Rica...and catching up this week upon return
* Living in California....

Tonight I am grateful for all of this, and so much more:

-Two weeks of doing well on kicking the sugar, and seeing results on the scale
-A nice, long mall walk and talk with a friend tonight, putting me over my daily step goal again
-FitBit, SparkPeople, the many tools and resources at my disposal to try to live and eat healthfully
-The adoring green-eyed tuxedo kitty sitting by me on the computer desk, just waiting for another little pat or a word, but mostly ready to go be part of a cat pile in bed
-A weekend to relax and refresh after a difficult work week
-Plans with friends tomorrow

The first of every month is a reminder… That we have a clean slate in our lives… Will we fill it with words of gratitude? This is the forum… This is the place… This is the community of like minded people.
