gratitude thursday 11/6

Hmmm, my trip to Hawai’i is getting closer. I love traveling and I’m excited. I hate packing. The idea of it actually knocked me onto the couch last night. Tired in advance. I think a change of attitude would help. Take two: I get to pack tomorrow! Woohoo! I’ll start in the morning and make a list of anything I need to get outside (fresh batteries for my flashlight?) and then finish in the evening.

I get to go to Hawai’i.


I am so grateful.

I’m grateful for a satisfied client and a job well done. And that the client returned after a long time of being inactive.

I’m grateful for my skills and commitment to excellence.

I’m grateful that my retirement account actually increased in value over the last two weeks. May this trend continue! And I’m very very grateful that I actually monitor it.

I’m grateful for my commitment to keeping my mouth shut and not correcting my sister’s Hawai’ian pronunciation of any word. That should be interesting.

I’m grateful I showed up for my father’s care when dad went into the hospital yesterday. Called his doctor, arranged for care for dad when he gets out, shared info with my sister. And grateful that now, the next morning, I let the other sister know what’s up.

I’m grateful I did the astro report for the upcoming full moon even though I won’t be here at ritual and won’t give the report. Maybe someone else will use it; I just know that I’ve grown to love doing the research and deepening my understanding of the energies.

This month, on the 13th, the moon will be full in Taurus, opposing the sun (as well as Mercury and Mars) in Scorpio. Inner, earthy stability balancing outward, emotional transformation. This moon is called the moon of buoyancy/resilience or the mourning moon. The Ogham name is the Ivy moon—associated with healing, protection and cooperation.

Now you know too!

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.
