Thankful for: a good showing at the dog show, Rosy has three more legs toward another title. So happy with how she is working.

That an unexpected health emergency to a family member has turned into some good results, working on getting more fit and healthier, and that she seems to be mostly alright.

That today is peaceful. No hurrying to get together with family members, no rushing around.... yay!

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

This morning I'm grateful for:

-A holiday weekend and remembering the reasons why it is
-A trip back to the small town where I spent summers (and holidays) with my great-aunt and great-grandmother for many years as a kid
-Seeing my cousin again AND having breakfast with two old swim team buddies (sisters) not seen since I was a teenager
-To revisit places of my childhood, though both houses I lived in are now gone
-To walk past some old demons and discover they're no longer demons
-Wonderful memories of how much both my great-aunt (who wanted to adopt me) and my great-grandmother loved me
-Home, sweet home, always the best with my sweet kitty girls

Have a good day all -

Stephanie

-to marvel at watching a heron stalking and catching an eel, a red tailed hawk swooping in to watch the drama and flying away the instant the heron managed to swallow it (we had no idea there were eels in our river)
-to get some planting done before my back gave out
-for the freedom to stop and rest
-to be enjoying reading The Mysterious Benedict Society aloud with S
-to finally have the songs from Moana out of my head after two long visits with littles V and H

Grateful that:

although Rosy accidentally nipped me, she didn't mean to. She really wanted that wonderful treat and misjudged the snatch from my hand. I love her energy, her kind warm spirit, and her biddability. She had a great time today, and I am grateful for that, and for changes in my own mental approach. It used to be, if hurt, hit back, and I've learned the grace in controlling that immediate reaction and taken kinder, more controlled steps about the hurt.

Life lessons everywhere, and I am grateful for that, and for the ability (usually) to listen and discern what I need to, in order to understand a situation.

Grateful for being able to explain something in terms that were easily understood and gave food for thought.

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

Grateful for:

the Appalachian Trail Community on FB and elsewhere coming together. Today is the day they are using to commenorate Stronghold's life by getting out on the trail and walking a few miles to honor him and his quest for a new/better life. What a great way to honor him, pay respects to the family and bring a more positive spirit to the whole situation.

Grateful for all of you.... the reactions to each others posts, the celebrations, the kindness and thoughtfulness... thank you all.

And grateful that I was able to get to a local city to pick up some much needed food. We are lucky to be able to do this so comparatively easily.

Today I'm grateful for:

-Kaligirl's 7 years of cancer free!! Woo Hoo!! Get your exercise doing a BIG, LONG HAPPY DANCE!! emoticon
-Kim's thoughts on the Appalachian Trail murder; the police handled it quite well and the other hikers who helped the woman who was not killed are also awesome
-Two productive nights in a row where I spent most of the evening doing stuff around the house
-Not much I have to do tonight, so I see R&R in my schedule, maybe to read some more
-Doing my 10-minute cardio stairwell blast with my co-worker friend today
-My annual blood test is officially DONE! My company does this on site yearly and I use this as an "excuse" to try and be really, really good Jan-May (hey, whatever works or motivates is fine by me!)

Have a great evening all,
Stephanie

Tonight I'm grateful for:

-Spring weather, sans rain
-Getting car cleaned and gas tank filled, both on member appreciation day at my car wash, meaning I got 10 cents/gallon off gas AND extra cleaning at no extra charge
-Cleo acting normal again; she'd been walking away from the favorite crunchy treats & if it had gone on longer, I was looking for a possible tooth/mouth issue
-A letter from Roberto in Chile (my sponsored son; started sponsoring him at age 4, he will be 17 in October)
-Still working on that fine line between being gentle with myself, yet also being as self-motivating as possible; always lots to be done and it's just me now
-These sweet kitties of mine who enrich my life in so many ways
-Clean sheets and kitty blankets ... aaaaaah

Have a great evening all,
Stephanie

Tonight I'm grateful for:

-Pictures giving color to memories, eyes shine, filled with love
-Getting away from work at lunch, running to Costco to get a good walk in ... I can hardly ever getting out of there without finding some little something ...
-Finding a thicker/more comfy little runner rug to replace a shabby one at my bedside (BONUS: The kitties approve, important because they jump down onto this rug after sitting in the bedroom windows)
-Two small bouts of moderate exercise today as I finished up my book while riding the bicycle
-My exercise buddies; now they're racing up and down the hallways ...
-Up next: stretching, to wind me down into bedtime ... great plan!

Goodnight all,
Stephanie
