Live in the present. Do the things that need to be done. Do all the good you can each day. The future will unfold.

Good morning! Today I give thanks for~~

~ courage

~ extraordinary beings who have/do/will walk the planet, like Peace Pilgrim

~ loving seeing Elaine's presence (PeacefulOne) and feeling peaceful in it

~ enjoying Sandra's excitement about the road trip ahead (and looking forward to our road trip together)

~ though it is rife with enormous problems, the good karma of living in a country where information is made available to the citizenry (e.g., the contents of my blog today)

Blessed be!

On this Saturday night, I come to think about just a very few of the many things I have to be grateful for in this blessed life of mine:

-Choosing to take my sweetie to the First Annual Kansas City Balloon Festival last night (her birthday) instead of waiting until tonight to go with friends - BECAUSE IT'S RAINING TODAY and we couldn't have seen the mass launch OR the balloon glows!!! Last night's weather was PERFECT and I put together a GREAT picnic dinner
-Hot air balloons, they are so amazingly beautiful and just fill me with awe (I've always wanted to take a hot air balloon ride)
-Getting LOTS done today at home, more than my list called for, it was just one of those hard working days around the house that felt really good
-A visit from a friend who brought a very cool birthday gift, a candlelier (yes, it's a made-up word, but spelled correctly - a mini-chandelier with a spot inside the beautiful clear glass beads for a tea candle
-Dinner out with friends tonight, but close to home, so not a big deal

Have a great evening everybody!

Stephanie

Hello Grateful Peeps!

I'm grateful that I can peer in here every so often to offset my political passions; and

For cooling temps & managing to turn my days into days instead of nights (I do mean that literally!)

For ongoing communications with my (lost for a long time) brother

Another hurdle to help the unprecedented U.S. poverty level ... Jobs Bill!

Good news from my Dr that contrary to my occasional feelings, I am NOT dead, and just need to "get up off my butt"

♫ Carli

�Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.� ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am thankful for some rain... and some coolness in the early morning with NO rain so I could get my two miles in with the Pickles... one of them RUNNING!!!!

And I am SO thankful that my knees are not hurting AT ALL... and my ankles are in pretty good shape for the shape they're in!

I am thankful for apples and peaches... I am SO happy for these peaches this late in the season... the trees hung right in there this year despite a lot of heat and some hail and many hot hot hot days with no rain...

YUM!

Even though I am struggling today, with the (not wholly unexpected news) that I am losing my job as of the end of October, there are still many good things in my life. Rosy my puppy, is definitely one of them. My family is especially supportive and wonderful. And I do know that my co-workers wouldn't want to vote me off the island, so that's all good.

I'm in need of prayer, good thoughts, etc. In fact, if any of you have a clue to winning lottery tickets for lots of money, let me know that too. LOL!

Kim and Rosy, a heart team

To generous souls every task is noble.
-- Euripides

Good morning! Beginning the day productively and thankfully~~

~ remembering with a smile in my heart the summer road trip --

that began with visiting in the Dolphin with SUCHAHOOT (Karen) just over an hour after I took off on the adventure
...and MANY weeks later...
the fun adventure with DOKEYOKEY, (Kathleen) and Francesca in Burlington, VT and bicycling along the fabulous bike trail

~ getting a load of wash done

~ kitchen cleared and organized

~ coffee ground and brewed...and being enjoyed as I type

~ enjoyed g-communing about substantive issues with Sandra last night

Blessed be!

Hello, Kali, Sherri, and everyone!

Today I am grateful for:

* My beautiful and cuddly cat.
* For the choice to continue to seek emotional health and freedom.
* For friends and therapists who offer insight.
* For second-hand store cashmere sweaters.
* For all of you here!

Be well.

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. - A. DeMille

No matter what you’re feeling, the only way to get a difficult feeling to go away is simply to love yourself for it. If you think you’re stupid, then love yourself for feeling that way. It’s a paradox, but it works. To heal, you must be the first one to shine the light of compassion on any areas within you that you feel are unacceptab

I've been absent for a bit, so I missed Stephanie's bday!

Happy belated birthday Stephanie!

Today I am grateful for:
~ the medical profession, the people, the technology etc.
~ that they performed an MRI on my mother rather than a chest xray and found a (hopefully treatable) blood clot in her lung
~ that my mother's friend was with her at the hospital
~ fun bike ride and conversation with a friend this morning
~ sunshine before the rain
~ more blessings than I could ever list
namaste,
sherrie

Today I am thankful...

to see all of us here... we are such a rockin' bunch... you all know that you are the helium that elevates the general state of being around this place, right?

to have watermelon for breakfast and still have ONE piece left in my dish here as I type. I am thankful for bein' m-i-n-d-f-u-l of the watermelon!!!

to be up at 6... ok, it wasn't 5 and if it HAD been 5 then I would have gotten my sit-ups done and had a little more time to ease into Wednesday but since I was up until 1 AM (foolishly!), I am good with what I did which was take the Pickles for our 2 miles in the cool of the early morning while the sky lightened into a perfect blue, cloudless canvas for the day...

Tonight: SIT-UPS! Um. Thankfully!

There is within each of us a modulation, an inner exaltation, which lifts us above the buffetings with which events assail us. Likewise, it lifts us above dependence upon the gifts of events for our joy.
-- Dr. Albert Schweitzer

Good morning! In my pensive state I give thanks~~

~ hearing back from SparkPeople.com that WALKINGANNIE's great *One Year of Maintenance* blog will be featured in the DailySpark.com Best Members blogs this Friday

~ making my peace with lightening my academic load to make room for other things this semester...like self-care, for instance!

~ loving my voice teacher

~ buying a small recorder to have warm-up exercises available during the week

~ hearing from a dear friend in San Francisco who may be around after all while I'm there

Blessed be!

-hope.
-a great group of students.

This early morning I am thankful for ...
* so many of you back on this thread ... you make me smile
* finishing two process recordings yesterday (relentless two a week homework assignments)
* ginger carrot soup tastes better cold than hot -- yum!
* being alone with my feelings and it's OK
* trying a new church after three years absence. Going back a second time.
* a friendly congregation with diversity of people, hopefully with an acceptance of a broad understanding of the universal Divine. Time will tell
* as always, a life worth living, possibilities and freedom to choose.

Shine,
Sandra

Hey team. Going to ease my way back into here. I have been writing 3 grats in my agenda every day, so it won´t be difficult. Just having trouble fitting everything in my day since I returned from DD´s wedding.

~that all the wedding prep and amazingly, everything went well; I only had a slight cold for a while and some bothersome allergy symptoms there and when I got back home, proof to me that I am better at handling stress!!
~after a lot of looking, I ordered a birthday gift for DIL
~it´s time for bed and I think I will fall right to sleep!
