gratitude wednesday 8/19

I am a grateful woman. Space and time are easily and happily expanding to accommodate love. Leila’s toothbrush now occupies a place in my bathroom. Along with her preferred toothpaste. Exciting. Amazing.

I am very very happy. I/we moved through some very challenging communications. Much to my own surprise, I didn’t bail. I didn’t walk away. I’m in it. I’m present. I will say, as I keep saying over and over again, that I have never shown up before for this level of intimacy. It is a truly blessed and amazing thing.

I like the way she rolls. I like the way I roll with her. We are both, to a large degree, committed to honest open affirmative communication and wow it’s amazing.

I am toying with the idea of yet some more heretofore untried ways of being. Scary. Exciting. I’ve been invited out of my comfort zone, and here I go. One little audacious moment at a time.

I am so grateful that I lived long enough to experience this.

Life rocks. I am 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.
