gratitude thursday 12/3

Happy birthday, Michael! We were together for so many years, as friends, lovers, husband/wife, parents. You are a cherished person in my life and I’m very grateful for you.

I’m grateful for starting to feel better. Twelve days of a cold which started in my chest (still coughing) and migrated to my eyes, which are so lovely being red and teary.

Today’s the first day since Sunday that I woke up with my eyelids not being glued together. What a relief. Humbling to know the impact of my lazy habits of touching my face and not washing my hands often enough. Humbling to know that I probably placed the infection in my eyes by myself. Ack.

Made a sanitizer spray yesterday with essential oils (tea tree, lavender and lemon) that I’m using all the time on my hands, my phones, my keyboard.

I’m grateful for every single moment of feeling better. I affirm that I am healed and well and that I have everything I need for my health and well-being.

Life is good and I am grateful to know this.

Sharing birthday and Day of the Dead happiness — a gift for you!



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.
