Kathy, my heart goes out to you and your family.

grateful
~indeed, for every day's gifts
~for the intention to switch up my morning routine and then doing it
~to happily watch S devour frozen yogurt on this triple digit day
~to work on simplifying surroundings that are difficult to maintain
~to feel ready to let go of some long held expectations

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 on the last day of the month....

* That my DIL's struggle is over.
* That I was with my dad when we got the phone call on Saturday afternoon....nice for both of us, to be able to comfort each other.
* That my son has so much wonderful support.
* That grandkids are coping well, choosing to go to school to be with their friends.
* For every moment of life on this planet.

Today I'm grateful for:

All that's right in my life and here.

The good health my family and I enjoy.

Kathy's courage and sharing her gratitudes here reinforces the fact that there is always something to be grateful for.

Maha, and all that share their gratitude.

The willingness to continue to let go of an important relationship and hurt feelings.

Tears.

Kaligirl posted on my blog today, which cued me to *show up* in the gratitude corner. In spite of health challenges, my life is full to over-flowing. I'm grateful~~

~ for LIFE -- we're promised only this moment; living it fully is my practice

~ that Kathy's son and granddaughters had quality time and the opportunity to say goodbye to their beloved wife and mother #liveliketori

~ my food choices and quantities today were reasonable

~ great joy during the 8.5 miles bike ride this morning, swooshing along on a lovely cool morning

~ pared down my "To Do" list, so that I didn't have to go out, but managed to accomplish all the necessities by phone or email

Blessed be,
emoticon

Tonight I'm grateful for:

-Friends, friendship
-One particular dear friend who's struggling so much, and doing okay, where I'm able to practice my listening skills (a good thing, not a complaint)
-The most amazing little 4-legged kitties ... each with her own personality, quirks and forms of love
-An incredible massage late afternoon
-Trying something new tomorrow
-A nice, chilled glass of white wine and how privileged I am to be sitting here drinking a glass
-Clean sheets on a comfortable bed, calling me soon ...

Goodnight,
Stephanie

Today I'm grateful for all of this, and so much more:

-Beautiful weather, indeed, unseasonably cool with lower humidity
-A weekend, with hopes this great weather holds so I can take advantage, but after viewing the eclipse, if that's my weather enjoyment for the week, I'm A-OK with it
-All of the tools I use to try and stay healthy and get healthier
-This practice that is so grounding and each of you who share in the practice with me, thereby enhancing my own experience - thank you!!
-Those sweet kitties of mine that teach me so many lessons
-Friendships, near and far as I get ready to connect with my Aussie friends and my South African friend over the weekend
-Skype, that makes it possible AND free

Grateful today
* For listening to my gut....
It told me to bring an extra set of keys on our road trip. In ALL my travels, I have never done so. But this time I did. Good thing. When we were leaving our hotel in Winnemucca, NV at 5:30 am, I couldn't find them anywhere! I'd searched the parking lot, the hotel room, lost and found, etc. But then...I remembered the spares were in a bag I'd left in the car! When checking the car, I found it UNLOCKED! And was able to access the bag with the keys, and say farewell to my original set (with the key ring from Jerusalem...)

So today, I got a call from my gym. Someone in Winnemucca found the keys (car, mailbox, and home...plus my key card to the gym) and called them, to track me down. I ended up talking with the nicest person who found them. He'll hold them til next week, and send them when I am home from my visit with my dad!

A TRUE MIRACLE!

* For being able to respect my son who is asking for no visitors. DIL is no longer eating, getting up, or responding... it won't be long now.
* That my DIL will pass when the days are still relatively long...
* For knowing how difficult the first holiday season will be, but to also know they won't be "ruined" for future years, by memories of loss....
* That they have all had time to live, to travel, to experience more together than most do in long lives, and now have had time for goodbyes...

Grateful today
* For safe travels to Idaho and back...with lots of "adventure" along the way
* That I too, had the incredible opportunity to view the total eclipse of the sun
* For "Andy", who opened up his well manicured pasture for those of us needing a place to park and view. And who kept the porte-potties clean and well stocked!
* For the awesome people with whom we shared the experience
* For my little TigerLily, who traveled so well, who remained quiet as a mouse in hotels, and who got along with other dogs we met along the way
* For my motivator, my rock star daughter-in-law, who, per my son, is now "ready"

Today I'm grateful for all of this, yet so much more:

-An amazing total eclipse experience, from arriving at state park gates an hour before they opened, to sunrise over the 100-acre lake from our picnic table 10 feet away, through first contact, Bailey's Beads, the diamond ring, the corona ... just stunning
-The full weather effects of the day, from beginning to end; we sat in folding chairs with umbrellas for 45 minutes (after getting my mother and blind stepfather to the car), then the skies just cleared and opened wide for all of the above
-My blind stepfather was able to see a bit; with his eclipse glasses, he had to find his "sweet spot" and did a few times, but then was able to see some of totality and his joy was palpable
-Precious family time for we are not often together
-Horrendous flooding happened just after eclipse, all the way home and through the night; while I caught some water in my basement corner (sigh, again), it was NOTHING compared to what some friends got (inches to feet)
-Wonderful in-person walks with my sister, replacing our usual telephone "walk and talks"
-A special last night together with my sister and bro-in-law after everybody else had flown home, including the scrumptious dinner they treated me to
-Loving having family here, loving it when they leave and I can fully relax again with the diva girls

Nothing better than appreciating everything!

- relating to their visionary ideas and hoping they'll develop some measurable goals
- working with inspired and dedicated colleagues
- finishing some prep work
- absolutely fabulous weather

grateful
~for the end of a good but intense family visit
~for a bit of separation from the rift between daughter and son
~for clear evidence of my own emotional growth
~for buckets of joy from little granddaughters
~to be loving my life more and more

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.

All that's right in my life and here.
The good health my family and I enjoy.
Feeling loved.
Seeing the beauty all around me.
The willingness to continue to let go of disappointment and hurt feelings.
The willingness to forgive without condoning bad behavior.
The willingness to make healthy choices and focus on losing weight.
My gratitude practice.

Just stopping by to check-in. Our middle son looking arrives this afternoon with his little family. We are looking forward to the next two weeks! Many, many thanks and gratitudes that this day has come to see our prodigal son come home in real life!

Tonight I am grateful for:

-My mother, stepfather and oldest nephew arriving safely from LA
-That my mother wants and is able health-wise to travel here for the eclipse
-That my oldest nephew (now 15) is able to travel with them to help (my stepfather is blind, and my mom tires easily, so travel is not easy)
-Rare family time, never often enough
-The wonderful bond I have with my oldest nephew that, sadly, I don't have with my other 3 nieces/nephews (his mother, not the same mother as the others, makes all the difference)
-These sweet kitty girls; they love my nephew and he loves them; they always play and play
-My comfortable home

Enjoy the small things ...

Stephanie
