I’m grateful to be healing, to be recuperating, to know that this too shall pass. I slept better last night and for this I am grateful.

I’m grateful to be able and willing to cut my schedule down as much as possible and to rest

I’m grateful that I know that I don’t really know how to rest and to be willing to call a friend and ask how. His reply: get on the couch and watch a movie. I did!

I’m grateful for my acupuncturist. I’m grateful I headed over there yesterday and got a treatment and herbs. The goal being that intervention now will speed this thing up and I won’t be sick for as long as last time, which was two weeks.

I’m grateful that I can hold powerful healing intentions instead of despair and resignation. Grateful to be a trained and committed positive person.

I’m grateful for getting bills paid and numbers entered yesterday. Laundry done. Groceries and water bought. I did a lot!

I’m grateful for hearing that dad has accepted not getting his car back. I’m grateful for how well my sister and Allen handled the conversation with dad. I’m grateful that my dad is still around and still feisty and when push comes to shove, willing to accept what’s up. Phew. I’m relieved he won’t be driving.

I’m grateful for loving concern from friends. And for asking my spiritual sisters for their energy and prayers.

I’m grateful to be grateful. That I’m alive, healthy, fit, strong, willing and committed to living an abundant transformed life.

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.
