Hello Everyone!

This monday morning I am grateful for
- the rain, steady and refreshing
- the cancellation of a couple of morning meetings, freeing me up to take care of some things
- a 1 lb loss this week after being stuck for a couple of weeks
- yummy raspberry and greek yogurt breakfast
- the quiet at work this morning, for some reason, everyone is late.

Hope everyone has a great day and week!

OK, now this is REALLY STRANGE ... I can't think of a time when I followed myself on this board ... AND it's been almost 24 hours since I did my gratitudes last ... doo doo doo doo ...

Tonight, my gratitudes include:

-Being included in my dear friend's (second mother) big family Sunday dinner, especially on Father's Day, spending time with old friends with tons of kids around of all ages, on a farm with a beautiful weeping willow overlooking their pond, with chickens and goats and a huge garden and lots of flowers ... just a truly delightful family
-Getting more of an opportunity to rekindle a friendship with a girl I grew up with for part of my childhood
-A picture my sister forwarded of my brother and his four kids (my family all live in L.A. and they all had a celebration at my brother's house for Father's Day)
-Taking candy to my dear friend the DAY AFTER she ran out of candy. It's a standing joke that ever since she's been diagnosed with terminal cancer, she's had bon bons (in the form of dark chocolate) in her house almost constantly - that she's been spoiled - I'm just so happy I got them to her in time so she wouldn't have to have even one night without dark chocolate!!!
-Grace and dignity
-An opportunity to see my 95-year-old "adopted aunt" tomorrow, despite the fact that it will be at her daughter's funeral (she's now buried 3 kids)
-Finally learning that these things (funerals, etc.) are for paying respects to those still living, and how much it can mean to so many people

Goodnight all ...

Stephanie

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

Good afternoon my thanks giving friends! I have a moment and enough clarity to vist this special place and share some of the Good in my life--

- a safe arrival, albeit a day later than planned

- because of a missed flight, a new friendship with a lovely family from the Domican Rebublic, who opened their home and hearts to me

- Inti Raymi, the traditional celebration of the arrival of summer here, which I witnessed at my god daughter Amrita´s school yesterday (a little early), an amazing event

- Mary Oliver´s profound understanding of the practice of tonglen

- a call to Diana on Maui just ahead @10 cents per minute

Blessed be!

Morning all!
I am grateful for:
1. Continued fabulous weather – a 65 degree bike ride in no wind and darkening skies (much needed raining now)
2. Growing strength and endurance
3. Mindfulness of my body as I ride, envisioning new and stronger joints
4. Mindfulness of my surroundings as I ride, ‘seeing’ the shelter of graceful green branches that flank the path
5. Working for an organization that appreciates the whole human and provides showers!

Today my heart is full and at peace. I am thankful for a beautiful bright and clear day for a picnic. I am thankful that even though I overdid it, my tummy is full and I never have to go to bed hungry or wondering where my next meal will come from. I am thankful that running is becoming easier for my body and joints to handle. I am thankful for the exhaustion I feel and the hopeful restful sleep I get.

Today I am thankful that:
- Yeti didn't get mad at me for blowing up ANOTHER computer... my love/hate relationship with electrical items continues...
- my backup system survived and I only lost 5 hours work
- my laptop is set up and ready to go so I can get straight back to work
- a kid-free day in the office
- my new camera being better than expected

May the grace of gravity be with you today!

Though no-one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

It's time to be the me I want to be.

- rain soaking into the ground
- a little bonfire that made a whole LOT of rubbish disappear from my yard and house
- waking up extra early so I can exercise and blog before work :D

Enjoy your day!

Though no-one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

It's time to be the me I want to be.

Today I am thankful because all the bills were paid and there is still money in the account

I am thankful for an afternoon cookout that a co-worker is having at her house. Thankful that she is opening her home to myself and other co-workers and allowing us to break bread, laugh and create new memories

Thankful for my awesome and pretty pink bike that allows me to feel the wind on my face, pump my legs up the hill and burn carlories while having fun

I am thankful that it is a quiet day at work, which is nice because the rest of the week will be pretty demanding

I am thankful to be here, apart of this group, showing giving thanks for all that is good in my life in this moment, when I probably would've just gone thru the day and not shown gratitude for anything.

Namaste

Morning all

I am grateful for so many things...

- I attended my colleague's dad's funeral on Saturday and it was a piece out of Americana - small country church (packed to the rafters), tractor drawing the casket to the cemetery steps away, 'dinner' served in the one room school house. Two of our mutual friends went with me and we put the top down on the convertible on the way back home - savoring our friendships, a fabulous day and sending soothing thoughts to our friend.

- I have not found my formal meditation groove, instead catching minutes of appreciation, awareness and thanksgiving as the day allows.

- I am grateful for my life, my friends, my health and this wonderful site.

Namaste

Today I am grateful for all that I am given.
Being safe in my space from well intentioned outsiders.
For not having any impediments to what amount of travel I am able to do.
For my neighbors and friends that support me.

One door closes (Maha's temporary departure) and another door opens (Taz is back)!!! :-)

Tonight, I wind down my day with lots of gratitude, for all of this, yet really so very much more:

-A stunningly gorgeous day, especially since the last many have been VERY hot and humid
-Volunteering at the park today to help hand out registration packets for the Corporate Challenge triathalon and duathalon tomorrow a.m. (every company particpating in Corporate Challenge has to do volunteer time of "x" number of volunteers, depending on the size of the company
-After volunteering, I took advantage of my location and rented a paddleboat for an hour (and it did my soul good!!!)
-Great exercise today: (1) 10 minutes of core exercises; (2) 30 minutes cardio this morning; and (3) another hour of cardio while paddleboating!!
-Freshly mowed lawn
-Hoping for some deck time this evening as they say it will be raining all of tomorrow

Have an excellent evening everybody!

Wow! Didn't April go by fast. I can't believe we are in the first week of May already!!!

Just wanted to check-in and say how thankful I am for my Sparkfriends- especially from this group- checking in with me, when I miss a couple of days. I do read the posts, even when I am too trashed from the Spring Craziness in the Landscape Zone, and it means more than I can tell you to me.

Hope to check-in sooner next time, than the week I missed this time. take care, bob

(pssss, pssss, quiet, did it work, are they confused as to the month? Shhhh, don't tell them it's June, I know they'll fall for it).
