Grateful for my 2 kids, 2 granddaughters, 2 brothers and their wives and step-families, granddog, friends, and Brother David
Pilates is the first thing – I’ve been lazy about taking care of my body’s aches and pains lately, and my weekly online class is this morning. I’m new to pilates – I signed up for it, because I don’t even need to drive to the rec center now to take it.
by remembering to visit gratefulness.org
by doing a 15-min sit before bed, which calms me a lot
Thus far, it has been easy for me. My life has gotten better in various ways. When I experience pain, I remember that pain I had in the past tended to improve with time. [This will probably stop being true when I reach some age..]
When I was 60, I asked a 70-yr-old woman, a distinguished landscape architect, what the next decade might hold for me. She was delighted with her eyes, one of which was now nearsighted and one was farsighted, so she didn’t have to go back to her truck w...
When I was 60, I asked a 70-yr-old woman, a distinguished landscape architect, what the next decade might hold for me. She was delighted with her eyes, one of which was now nearsighted and one was farsighted, so she didn’t have to go back to her truck when she forgot her reading glasses.
visiting the gratefulness site, most days
Ah – I see Maeve has the same experience, below! I can find silence – peace of mind? – even in the presence of the construction noises around me, which are, fortunately, not terribly intrusive.
That’s wonderful, Annie – being able to trust God. My granddaughters’ nanny prays and reads her Bible but is so so worried and angry about so many things. You are wise!
Good plan, Zenith – congrats
Thank you, Javier – my new word for the day – Hara
Thank you, Mary, for sharing how you let go of the physical tension that resulted from you ‘mental tension’! A useful lesson for all of us. And it sounds like you made a good decision – hooray! o(*^＠^*)o
Wow – I’ve heard of cochlear implants but never from one who actually had them. Thanks, Annie, and warm wishes – It’s wonderful that you can hope for improvement even years in the future （￣︶￣）↗
Oh, Cathy, you’re still a young thing! Congrats on giving up the disdain.
Yes, grateful sea and Zenith – Brother David is such a treasure. We are lucky to have him! ( ͡• ͜ʖ ͡• )
Stop, Look, Go – thanks for the reminder, Antoinette! (○｀ 3′○)
Thank you, Cathy – fun! And how could I have forgotten the Blue Moon; like the Harvest moon, not associated with a specific month. I like the alternate names, too, and the connection to Native Americans
Thank you Serafina! And for the beautiful picture (ಥ _ ಥ)
I’ll argue, Dusty Su, that you Want to make silence a priority – you don’t Have to. Warm wishes to you – (❤´艸｀❤)
Yes, I know the feeling. Sometimes I think I ‘should’ develop a habit of listening to music when the silence is heavy. I listen to metta chants on youtube when I’m working on something difficult at the computer. They are quite awesome. Thank you Pilgrim (✿◠‿◠)
Hi, Maeve – my bro and his wife live in the backwoods of Dummerston VT.
An Hour of stretching – wow! I’m impressed.
Warm wishes to you –
Welcome, Sunflower. I love your ‘face’ – the little image we post of ourselves. Thank you for joining us!
Thank you, Rose! I always miss it when it’s gone, so I thank you [and Serafina] for getting it back now.
