“Be grateful for what you have now. As you begin to think about all the things in your life you are grateful for, you will be amazed at the never-ending thoughts that come back to you of more things to be grateful for. You have to make a start, and then the law of attraction will receive those grateful thoughts and give you more just like them.” —Rhonda Byrne
“Having gratitude in all things, all circumstances, at all times is the greatest statement of faith one can profess.” —Jackie Woodside
Yes dear ones, this is two posts in one, because I’m taking a rare week off! Next weekend I’ll be at the Northern California Women’s Herbal Symposium, circling up with a couple of hundred gorgeous women, teaching a couple of workshops (Making the Mask of Your True Spirit, and Forest Lichen Wands), and vending some of my homemade remedies.
So this post will have to last us two weeks, loves.

I’m grateful for tenderness period. Look at us all just trying our best to be happy.
I’m grateful for my old completely deaf and practically blind Jack Russell named Muffy, even though she has gas and is a compulsive licker.
Grateful for the memoir class which ended today. It has been empowering and full of good camaraderie. And it gives value to us seniors, our memories, and our lives.
I’m grateful to have seen the baby geese at Lake Merritt. So cute.
I’m grateful to pick up my new glasses and be able to see clearly to drive– finally, after 6 weeks of double vision. Ahh, thank you.
