gratitude friday 7/24

How beautiful a morning! Woke up in my bed, refreshed, smiling some. I am so grateful that I don’t wake up in dread any longer. That I greet the day in peace, joy, willingness.

I am grateful that I got to introduce Leila to Rose and Gus last night. That we all went to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Rabbit was right. So much exposition was left out of the movie. Sigh.

I’m grateful to have a sweetheart. I’m grateful for all the sensations of opening in my heart, in my root chakra. Both of which have gotten a bit crusty. Just sayin’…

I gotta say it again. I. Am. Awed. In. Gratitude. That. I. Have. A. Sweetheart. Blessed be.

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.
