Another Day of Gratitude – 12 Things

. at . 3 comments

I am grateful for the following 12 things:

  1. Jeff’s birthday – he’s a fun and precious soul to work with.
  2. My car  –  gets me around reliably.
  3. Prayer time at church – It is awesome to hear about the answers and comforting to have someplace to take the questions.
  4. Sweet potatoes– great alone or mixed with rice, beef strips, jicama, & onion.
  5. Berkley Bowl – most awesome grocery store I’ve ever seen with its HUGE variety of fresh produce. Several bag fulls ended up at dd’s home after a big shop there.
  6. My fish caretakers – my 3 nieces took care of the fish and brought in packages while I was away.
  7. Books – there is a book for every need, want, wish, and fetish. My, I could tuck myself away on a hammock on a warm beach with piles of books for several months and be so content. I found one that is great to read to kids about grief. It’s called Tear Soup.
  8. Staff lunches – while I sometimes dither myself about the cost, I am glad that I go. The camaraderie, fun, and discussions fill up my heart and help me feel connected to these dear people.
  9. Brita Water filter – I don’t like the taste of chlorine, so I drink filtered water. Go here for directions on how to replace the charcoal in the filter for about fifty cents. I haven’t dome this yet. If you do, let me know how it works out.
  10. Telephone – spoke to a long time friend tonight and did some work from it earlier today. Once I get a full time job I’m going to get a cell phone. I miss having one. Heard anything about the Android phone? That’s what I’d like to get.
  11. Graduation date – I have ONE!!! Saturday, June 27, 2009, 3-5 pm.
  12. My gratitude habit– whenever I do this, my focus is more on the positive and good. Happier thoughts occupy my brain and so there’s not so much room for the grumpies. Plus, it’s just plain fun to think grateful thoughts.

    Tear Soup is such a lovely book…we read it with newest to help her process grief from so many losses…

    Congratulations on having a real, actual graduation date!

    Your gratitude practice is inspiring me…it’s one of those things (like exercise) that I know for certain works–and yet I resist. But you’ve inspired me and that’s the push to get going again. I thank you.

    Doodah, I am more excited about it than I thought I would be. Usually I don’t get excitid for things until right before the event.
