It’s December. December 1, 2008. Wow. Time flying by.
I am grateful for today. I am grateful for this moment. I am grateful for being a lifelong learning.
Today I read about Aloha virtues on Rosa Say’s blogpost. The virtues are:
A wonderful set of qualities in which to wrap one’s self as we enter into the Yule season. Or any other season.
The light is less and less every day, and soon the wheel will turn. Soon comes the return of the light; how cool is that! How wonderful that I don’t feel the pressure and desperation I used to feel in the past before I walked this path. How wonderful to be a lover of all the seasons. I’m grateful for that.
I’m grateful for — when the urge to hibernate hit last night — I honored it and gifted myself with a long night’s sleep. It’s been a long time since I was so tired and I feel quite rested and pampered with the refill of rest.
Only dream that stays with me from my long night of rest was one of making bread dough (I don’t eat bread!) in a loved one’s kitchen, and adding the dough to a bowl and covering it with a damp cloth before I had to leave. The dough barely fit into the teeny bowl. The bowl was beautiful. The cloth was beautiful. And the kitchen was beautiful. I wonder what is being cooked up, what’s going to be rising, in my life.
I am grateful for the weekend’s gifts
an astrological reading from Barry that was very inspiring
a Tarot reading from Rabbit that was also very powerful—two spreads, one about a decision I was pondering and the other about the year ahead for me
movie night at Andrew’s—Babette’s Feast, leftovers and friends—yum!
dinner with Shari Saturday night
lunch with dad
lunch and family time at my sister’s
making a gift of poke (marinated ahi Hawai’ian style) for my sister
Life is good and I am blessed
