gratitude Friday 4/23

Grateful for the epic dream, very romantic, of my reunion with a big crush of my teenage years—Danny Moncheur, of Deer Park Farms in Cuddebackville, NY (a family resort in the mountains). He was the owner’s son and oh-so-glamorous to me. In the dream, he was ridiculously wealthy and terminally ill when we re-met and bonded. Beautiful sad loving dream.

I am grateful for my gratitude practice and for the people who read it.

I am grateful to find other practitioners of gratitude lists. Yay for us! I believe that every drop of gratitude heals and blesses our world.

I am grateful for the food that is growing in my garden. I snipped greens yesterday for the first time. Lettuces, chard, kale, bok choy; still so tiny that they all can be eaten raw. The snap peas and bush beans are growing every day. Hooray for all the rain we’ve been having. I even see more in the forecast for next Tuesday. Yes!

I am grateful for the farmer’s markets and the proliferation of amazing fresh food. I love living in the bay area.

I am grateful for the shoes that fit me and that allow me to walk and move through my life with ease.

I am grateful for my loving friends.

I am grateful that I am actually piecing together the sweater that I’ve been working on since December! With ripping and reknitting, it feels like I knit it twice!

I am grateful for love and presence and patience and perseverance and gratitude and generosity and goodwill.

Life is good and I am blessed!

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
