08:56 am: Gratitude
Oh, I need it this morning:


  • Pink buds pushing out on the neighbors' tree.

  • The reliable warmth of oatmeal. Plus the extravaganza of a chopped apple, toasted walnuts warming the cinnamon, and really good yogurt.

  • A crossword half done, with my love reading the clues aloud.

  • A walking tour that I better hustle to get to. The trike ride on the way!

  • A morning party tomorrow! The old girls network. The beautiful faces of friends and fellow travelers as we age.

  • Getting inspired by the gorgeous accomplishments of others. Being lifted by that.

  • Unextinguished passion for the things I love. Knowing what thrills me. Willingness to be surprised. Willingness.

Thank you for the lovely images and the reminder of gratitude. The necessity of gratitude. I'll contemplate my own list on my morning drive to meeting.

The necessity of gratitude. That sounds about right to me.

Hi,

I just friend-ed you on the recommendation of geeksdoitbetter, who has been reading my updates on riding my new trike and thought of you.

I lived in Northampton with femmeboy from 2006 to June of last year - your entries are making me nostalgic for it!

I've seen you commenting on many of my other friends' posts over the years and always enjoyed what you had to say - so I figured it was high time that I add you.
