I am growing in my ability to bring focus to the things that I am grateful for. I look forward to learning from others.
Hi to everyone,
Thank you so much for the lovely visit; here in the Gratitude Lounge. I am on my way now, back to more private work on gratitude and healing, in general.
I cited a wonderful website in my last post to Manda: Miranda MacPherson. I don’t know the exact http, but if you look her up, you can check it out. She has a “Sanctuary” which is a lovely place. Some of her talks and videos are free. I love her. I always like to pass on new discoveries. 🙂
Thank you to Brother David and the Gratefulness staff for this beautiful space.
I’ll be back for another visit. Love and healing and gracious living to all, until we meet again . . . Debbie
I feel grateful to be here to join others in comforting Alicia. I wish that all in this group will be provided with what they need to be well and prosper, and give to each other and to the world.
I am grateful to have Sun., and Mon., to continue this visit in the Gratitude Lounge; before I go back to my private gratitude journal and other endeavors.
Today, again, I feel grateful to be accepted here for a check-in/visit. I feel grateful that this website exists, and thank the staff and Brother David for creating it.
I thought of one other exciting piece of news. On my poetry website, they have a yearly group Anthology hard cover book, and I will have have one of my poems about Al in the book.Anyone on the site can have a poem. All are accepted. In rare case, a person could be asked to choose a different. Though all are accepted, I still feel excited that my poem will be published in the book.
I think that is all my exciting news for this check-in, but I plan to continue my visit until Monday.
I send love and healing, for anyone experiencing illness or in need of healing for other matters. I send love and good wishes for all.
I am glad that the blizzard here, in New Hampshire, wasn’t as harsh as it might have been. It was forecasted at 12 to 20 inches, but we only had 12 inches. I was glad that I was able to clean off my car; without much trouble?
I am very happy that I continue to lose weight. Even during the winter! The Mediterranean Diet has worked wonders.
I am glad that I was warmly welcomed here to check-in and glad to have poet friends. I am grateful for my talent.
I hope everyone here has been able to stay warm, and wish that those who have not; will find that this basic need will be provided for as soon as possible.
The last day I’ll be checking in will be Monday; then off until another visit. 🙂
Oh Manda, I am so grateful that I’ve been visiting; when you have announced that you are leaving the Gratitude Lounge. I would have been sad to come back to visit to find that you were not here. Perhaps we will “visit” at the same time in the future.
I wish you well with every endeavor, with your health, and continued joy and zest for life and play. I’ve grown to appreciate, even more, your specialness. You told me that I was a Goddess; when I left. And I will return that sentiment to you.
Tomorrow, I end my visit, and was going to leave this info then, but I’ll leave it now. There is a wonderful woman, Miranda MacPherson, who has a sanctuary on her website. If you will not be going on websites, perhaps she has written a book or has CDs.
I still have your phone number. My goal for departure is November, but it may take a little longer – due to finances. I would love to call you when I arrive in AZ.
Be well. I send much love your way.
Namaste, Debbie. <3
Alicia, you are an inspiration to me. Your love and appreciation for nature and silence, are simple healing beauties, yet many people don’t realize this. You are a blessing. Thank you for you courage and dedication to your husband. Love you, Debbie
I am so very glad to be “visiting” the Gratitude Lounge” when you have written. I am visiting until Monday, so I extremely grateful to meet up with you again. I still think of you, and for some reason there’s a picture in my mind; of the table with the knitted hats that you described in one post.
Of course, I send all the love possible, and wish to give you a big hug or hold your hand. I second everything others have written – you are not forgotten, and you are not alone. I am glad you are remembering to take care of yourself, too. It’s so important for you to keep hydrated. If it’s hard to eat, try to have soup. Chicken broth is very healing. That might help your husband, too.
I shall light a candle for you, your husband, your daughter and her son and the rest of your family and friends. I hope those who are not able to be with wilth you will find the strength and courage to return. Your feeling about it are quite valid; though the only option may be acceptance.
I send love, light, prayers, and compassion to you. So glad I was here to read your post. With so much love and a huge hug, Debbie
Thank you, Mary, I, too, am glad I popped in at a time that you were here. That for the validation and reminder that the things I have accomplished, are due to my courage.
I hope to catch you again before I’m off to my individual journey. Will be here until Monday. Love to you, Mary. <3
Yes, Manda, this “Word of the Day” is perfect. So glad for you that you have acupuncture and dance. <3. Love to you!
Much love to you Ursula. <3
Thank you so much, Anna, for the encouragement! It has been very good for my self-esteem. I no longer have pre-diabetes. It went away. This is a huge relief. I’m glad you are taking good care of yourself with regard to you hiatal issue. 🙂
How wonderful to hear that I am not forgotten. Thank you for the congratulations and support. This accomplishment has been a big boost for me and has lowered my anxiety about my health.
Tumeric is very good for inflammation. I had ordered it from Dr. Weil’s website; as a supplement. I stopped due to finances, but plan to start again soon. Perhaps you’d like to try it.
With much love, Debbie
Manda, I am so sorry for your friend losing her baby. Much loved is sent to you, her, and all family and friends.
Hi Diane, I know how hard this can be. I am so glad that you had a group of bird friends for a visit. That sounds so lovely. Hang in there . . . Spring will be here soon.
I am still here, Mary. A migraine interrupted my “visit” so I’ve decided to stay another week or so. 🙂
Manda, Thank you for sharing this health information. I am so glad to hear that the smaller fibroid has “found a new home.” I am hoping the other fibroid will find a new home as well. May your pain be at a minimum, and your sleep be deep and restorative.
I am doing fine, other than a migraine a few days ago, right after I returned to check in. I am working hard to clear out things in my apartment, so that I am ready to move when the time comes. As I said above somewhere, I lost 25 pounds since I went to AZ. I only have 30 more to go, to be at a healthy weight.
I am thinking of you!! <3
Thank you, Mary. 🙂
Hi Mary, I don’t know the details, but I am so sorry about what happened to you. It is awfully unfair. I am thinking of you and I care. <3
Thank you, Pilgrim. I am better now. 🙂
Gracias, amiga. 🙂 not Italian, but you get the idea!
