Today I am grateful for my control freak nature. In this time when so many things are out of our control, my need to control propels me to track my food. And it helps in my personal battle of the bulge.
I am grateful for SparkPeople providing the tracking tools to me for free. I’ve tried other trackers without success.
I am grateful for the Birmingham city council man who uttered a phrase that sticks with me and sheds light on whatever human interaction I have: space and grace. We need to give each other space and grace. In my urban environment, I overheard family tempers flaring yesterday.
I feel my own on edge. Step back - give space - and love (give grace). I had to do this for myself as well yesterday, when the inner toddler went to all out tantrum mode over working at home.
I am grateful I have enough to share, and was able to provide funds to a local charity that can get things to people that are needed NOW, and to people who likely will receive no federal help. The ones that “fall through the cracks”.
Not the blog I intended to write.
But there it is.
I am grateful for the spark friends who regularly remind us “your blog is for you”.
I feel good getting that all out.
Moving on with my day.
