gratitude monday 3/31

The end of March and I have another cold. A rough night. Raw throat, stuffed nose, lots and lots of sneezing and dripping. Torture.

So for what can I be grateful today? Hmmm…

I’m grateful the night is over.

I’m grateful for the willingness and ability to take care of myself.

I’m grateful for patience.

I’m grateful for prayer and meditation.

I’m grateful for breathing (even when through impacted nostrils).

I’m grateful for work accomplished and a lively weekend.

For dinner with dad and the fun of watching a belly dancer.

For dancing at Lindy in the Park on a glorious sunny cool day.

For a party with my hula sisters.

For safe and easy travels to and from the city and to and from Pinole.

I’m grateful for reading for pleasure.

I’m grateful for movie night at Andrew’s; for completing the Bourne trilogy. Fun.

For Friday Night Blues.

I am grateful and I have a vision of this cold passing through my body. In. A. Snap. That I am on the way to restored perfect health right now. I know that perfection and love is everywhere. That the universe’s light and health and energy is all around me. And is in me. I am one with the energy and health and light and love of the universe. And there is no disease. There is no illness. No. No. No. I do not accept that. I am grateful for the health that is already mine. For the restoration to ease and energy. I release this empowered intention to the perfect law of this lovely universe and I let go and let goddess. I am healthy easy energetic and whole. And so it is.

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.
