gratitude wednesday 8/12

I wake up with a grin on my face. Stretching and purring. Alone in my bed with retained heat and love cocooning me.

I am standing in gratitude for the gift of being present and blessed. For being met in love. For all kinds of intimacy. For the payoffs for being open, honest, for giving and receiving.

I think I might be a little less than grammatical this morning. I know what I mean, and that will suffice for now.

I am grateful for some new possibilities in work. Yay!

I am grateful for well chosen, well cooked fresh local and nutritious food.

I am grateful for someone to include in my domestic plans, in my shopping, in my cooking. I’m grateful to do Leila’s shopping for her and to deliver her groceries.

I’m grateful for my developing relationship with my adored friend Rabbit. For her, and my other friends, who are interested in every detail of my awakening development. For her coaching on every detail as the opportunities for loving in my heart mind and body deepen and widen.

And I’m grateful to my toes for the fact that things are different than they used to be. Across the board, different and better. I am not a prisoner of my past nor am I doomed to repeat it.

I am free, I am a woman who can use my words, I no longer dwell in that place of bitterness that drove me in relationship before. I am transformed and continue to transform. I know how I want to be and I have some skills to keep myself on track. How cool is that!

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.
