gratitude monday 9/29

It’s a good day to be grateful. I’m alive. I’m fit. I’m healthy. I have money to meet my needs. I have family and loving friends.

I’m grateful for this life and for the opportunities, one after another, to live consistent with my values.

I’m grateful that when I get into shitty thinking it doesn’t last as long or result in so much self-destructive behaviors.

I’m grateful to have seen my daughter yesterday. Too long without Rosie! I’m so grateful that she came to family holiday dinner.

I’m grateful for my sister making this dinner. For family.

I’m grateful for time with Shari, my cherished friend who’s a nun. I’m so impressed with the way these sisters of mercy are doing their ministries — all about helping the poor. Four women living in a house in the Sunset. Community. Shared energy and commitment. It would be so lovely to have this model in our witch community. A dream. A powerful dream.

I’m grateful for time at the ocean. The Marin headlands are so beautiful.

Life is good and I am blessed. Even when I don’t believe it!

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.
