gratitude thursday 5/1

beltane.jpgIt’s Beltane. May Day. The beginning of summer is here. I am blessed to be alive. To notice. To be celebrating in sunshine and joy. Ritual tomorrow; maybe Saturday too. Life is rich.

I am grateful to get a phone message from my daughter with the tone of her voice sounding grounded and happy. She is wearing life more loosely today and for that I am so thankful.

I’m grateful for my business networking community. Grateful to show up and participate. I’m grateful for business being fruitful and full of possibility.

I’m grateful for a happy client choosing one of the design options I offered and being really happy about it. Website creation is fun!

I’m grateful for getting better and better at making phone calls, reaching out, asking for what I would like and listening to the answers. In business, in relationship, which if you think about it are synonymous. When I treat my business calls like calls to a friend, things change. For the better.

I’m grateful for dinner with dad and for Allen coming along. And for the food! A perfect meal of scallops, humanely slaughtered beef, fresh asparagus and salad. It was absolutely wonderful. How nice to have an experience like that when the food comes from someone else’s kitchen!

I am a completely grateful gal and I feel blessed.

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.
