gratitude wednesday 7/1

July. That’s usually summery and hot, right? It’s 57.6º here today. Just sayin’…

Actually, I’m loving this cool weather. Any day it’s not sweltering hot is a good day for me.

I’m grateful the long, convoluted dream with my sister (betrayal!) was nothin’ but a dream.

I’m grateful that Heaven’s long wait is nearly over: water broke, she’s laboring away as I write this. Blessed be, Heaven, Aidan and Ian. (Aidan is the one who’s being born.)

I’m grateful for my new partnership with LB, who is going to do some outside sales for me. Hooray for teamwork!

I’m grateful for taking time to follow leads. For patience—a hard-won skill.

I’m grateful for faith. I’m grateful for knowing that I am just fine today. All is well. I have what I need and there’s *no reason* to think it will ever be otherwise. Hear that, you voices of doom in my head? Hear that, monkey mind? Jeeze.

I’m grateful for showing up. For willingness. For gratitude.

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.
