Gratitude - Day 299 - Oct 26, 2014

Grateful today for warm, breezy weather allowing us to get out in the yard and do lots of fall clean-up.

Grateful for the pictures I see on Facebook of my daughter and her friends on their camping trip this weekend.   They're having a great time getting out and doing fun things on weekends while also doing great as college students.

Grateful for the flip-of-a-switch gas fireplace which gives us great ambiance and a little snugly heat in the early morning and late evening, letting us keep the furnaces off until real cold weather hits.

Grateful for the small things that are comforting on this weekend day... time spent with my husband, comfort food on the stove, good music on the speaker.

Happy times, friends.  I hope you're enjoying your weekend, too.

Now, how do I turn off all the political ads that we will see on TV and the internet until Nov 4?  ;-)

Well, I decided today was the day to try making a slipcover for my very favorite chair.

Gratitude - Day 296 - Oct 23, 2014

Went for a walk around a local lake today, in the company of a friend.   The weather was perfect - a cool, crisp breeze with a bright warm sun that kept us both comfortable.

Gratitude - Day 290-295 , Oct 17-22, 2041

Life is full.

Life is good.

Things are happening.

Passions intersect with opportunity, and Poof!  Time flies.

Ever grateful, friends, ever grateful.

Gratitude - Day 289 - Oct 16, 2014

Today would have been my Dad's 75th birthday.   

His passing last March was too quick, too early.  He was still young, at least at heart.   

I miss him every day, and yet I feel him with me now all the time.  I feel him when I do something that he used to do, some mannerism or turn of a phrase or something. I feel him when I see something that he would have enjoyed.  I feel him when I'm reliving memories of him.   

I'm very grateful for his presence in my life.  It's very comforting to feel that he's still with me, even though he's passed on.

Happy Birthday, Dad.  I love you.

Gratitude - Day 288 - Oct 15, 2014

Grateful today for the community of friends that I'm developing here in Raleigh.   I am lucky enough to know a group of women who support each other through thick and thin.   One of our friends is going through a rough medical situation, and the way these women have flocked together to support her is truly amazing.   

Very thankful indeed.
