gratitude friday 7/31

I’m grateful. I’m plugged in at Half Moon Bay (HMB) library, reading and replying to emails, listening to satellite radio online.

It’s a beautiful day. I am feeling better today. Still quite (quite!) achy, and yet I can feel improvement. I am in my third day without caffeine and while I don’t feel like I’m kicking anything’s ass, I do feel determined and empowered and willing willing willing. I am so grateful for that.

I’m grateful for a lovely visit with my sister. We went tidepooling at Fitzgerald Reserve and walked around and around HMB. Spent lots of time in the yarn shop. Such an abundance of yarn! Wow. I didn’t buy any. Came really close. But no. Didn’t find the just-right yarn.

Found a lovely restaurant; we liked it so much we had dinner there last night and lunch there today. Yummy organic delicious food.

Barbara made breakfast for us today. How nice. And gifted me with a bunch of food. We had a lovely time at Bean Hollow Beach this morning. Windy but brilliantly sunshiny and just beautiful. We walked and then sat in the shelter of dunes and read our books.

I’ve taken some beautiful pictures. I love doing that.

I’m grateful that I have been able to do so little and rest so much. I’m grateful that I have a sense of humor that persists throughout even the toughest stuff.

I’m grateful for all the support of my sisters through this week of transition.

I’m a grateful gal. 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.
