gratituesday 4/6

I am so grateful this morning.

for a beautiful night’s sleep
for vivid dreams (weird and vivid)
for my deepening loving relationship with Ladybug—how wonderful to have her and her family as neighbors!
for pedicures with Rabbit, another special deepening and way to connect
for gorgeous weather
for new shoes that fit and make my finicky feet happy
for lunch with my sister
for her beautiful loving acknowledgment of the way I held space for my father as he lay dying
for a matzo brei party this weekend
for delicious healthy local sustainable food
for homemade kombucha
for homemade ghee
for homemade sauerkraut
for all these things I learned to make last year and the loving that came with the instruction
for having loved and been loved

And for all the love in the world and in my life today! Woohoo!

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.
