Day 134 - Grateful Sunday

Monday, April 13, 2015

It's Sunday, so it must be time for my weekly gratitude post. Of course I'm grateful for all the regular things - shelter, family, a great job. I try to go above and beyond the normal stuff once a week, as a reminder that that are bigger things in life to be thankful for.

I'm grateful for friends who are willing to share their WiFi password when our Internet is disconnected.

I'm thankful for the joy of watching a movie together with friends, and tease the host for talking through the movie, rewinding parts to hear lines again, and makes the whole experience totally hysterical!

I'm grateful that I can still figure out how to connect all the video and audio components together so that we get the best picture and sound when we're watching TV at home.

I'm thankful for the ability to cut my dad's hair, because the time we spend sharing thoughts and ideas are so special, and he still thinks I'm the best barber in all of California.

I'm even thankful for flaky neighbors who renege on their promises, because it reminds me that not everyone is perfect, and sometimes you have to accept disappointment. It keeps you grounded.

Finally, I'm grateful for a comfortable bed, where I'm headed in about 5 minutes.

Have a wonderful week, friends! Be grateful!

    Gratitude is essential to living a meaningful life!
    For the big things but also the little things! The daffodils that just came up next to our house...despite my husband and I are highly allergic, it gave us something to share with someone who helped us out! The singing birds, despite they wake us at 5-6 AM...at least my DH and I often laugh at how crazy they can sound and how many can sing different songs at the same time! It sounds like we live in a bird sanctuary! We are animal lovers so it's really sweet we have a lot of nature around (let's not discuss the squirrels who live in our garage and list our address on their little drivers licenses!)!!!
    Have a great week, my dear friend!
    Love & Hugs,
    Mary
    P.S. I love you cut your Dad's hair...how meaningful and touching!
    Are you actually a barber? I went to beauty school eons ago, but was allergic to everything...but, also cut my Mom's and friends hair!
