JessyI am grateful . . .

1. that I have made a commitment to exercise and that I am mostly keeping it.
2. that I am still (mostly) sugar free. I love it so much that I know will keep going and never look back.
3. for waking up this morning with my cat Molly. The last two mornings, she has been curled against me when I woke up.
4. for an apparent (cross fingers, knock wood) reduction in Nick’s anxiety level during the last week.
5. for the little speaker I bought to connect to our Chumby (Pandora/radio-streaming device). Nick’s music therapist has one that she connects to her tablet, and when I admired it, she told me what good sound quality it had and how cheap it had been. I looked online for one and ordered it to replace the staticky ones we had, one of which was held together by a rubber band because a cat had knocked it (and everything it was connected to) off a shelf. 2 weeks ago

sort77Gratitudes: 4/02/14

Today I’m grateful for having known Ricardo Amaya and being able to help his wife in the sale of his horses after his untimely accidental death 6 years ago yesterday. What an April Fools joke.

I’m grateful for a the years I have behind me now. I feel as though I’m figuring out what this whole life thing is about. I think I spent too much time focused on what was important at the time, but ultimately the wrong things. I’m grateful to be able to have a better prioritized life. Something I’ve only gained through time and maturity

Today I’m grateful for stumbling across an inspiring book that has re-lit a fire under me. I need to come back and look at my goals here more often and stop wasting so much daylight on distractions.

I’m grateful for the amazing people I have in my life. People from all sorts of walks of life. I appreciate them all even if for completely different reasons.

I’m grateful for, and deeply appreciative that I’ve gotten over much of my judgmental side that came from my lack of maturity. It has now afforded me the confidence to have so many amazing and different people in my life.

I’m grateful for the lack of worry that my husbands job status has brought me. I hadn’t realized the low level of stress I’ve been under for the last 10 years. I feel a heavy veil has lifted. For this I’m so very grateful.

Today, I’m just grateful. 2 weeks ago
