    Ditto this! The sun hit me in the eye as it was setting today and I realized it was in a whole new place in the patio door.

    Me too! I am grateful that perhaps winter is mostly behind us here in Florida. And that the wind has died down after the past few days of bluster.

    Good lord, yes. My poor honey felt like she was going to blown off the bridge on her run/walk yesterday, not sure how Oak is managing it since she runs the higher bridge!

    So grateful for the sunshine and the nice bag girl at the grocery store, she is always so pleasant.

    Ha! There's a particular way I wind my visor around my wrist in a figure-8 at the bottom of the bridge, so I can carry it effortlessly and then put it back on when I'm past the danger of it blowing off.

    I'm grateful for my allergy shots. I can watch those huge clouds of cedar pollen blow down the alley and still function as a human being.

    I am thankful that the sun is shining and taking the edge off this very cold day.

    I’m grateful to be able to work in the high desert for the next 8 days and also get some good riding and hiking in.

    desert riding/hiking always gives me a feeling of the freeing 
of my mind and my soul’s detoxification within its quiet peace and beauty

    I am grateful that our outing today in our motorhome went smoothly (stopped at Lowes for a couple things and filled up at a gas station, exercised the generator and other systems, plus the tires, after sitting in the campground for a month). I feel more confident in DH's driving this beast once we hit the road to head north next month!

    I'm grateful for the smile that a Kentucky Lawmaker gave me when I read about her proposed bill to "protect family values." I'm only sad that the sarcasm will likely go right over the head of the people to whom it is directed.

    I'm grateful for the advice and support of my TE sisters, and my own awareness of my state of recovery, in deciding to take it easy last week. Feeling much better.

    Grateful for the great horned owl hooting outside my window yesterday morning. Such a gentle sound from such a powerful bird.

    You make me smile, Oak.


    I'm grateful for finally feeling a little bit at home here in FL, feeling hope about the future, and just being happy in general these days.

    Happiness is good. :-)

    I too am grateful for feeling much happier than I have in months. Mexico was a fun place to visit, maybe even a good place to live one day, but not in Playa del Carmen and not now. Just happy to be living in our motorhome, in Florida, getting lots of good bike rides in, cooking fun food, and planning/doing projects, which we thrive on.

    I'm grateful that the heavy rain that will fall here tomorrow is not snow and ice.

    Also grateful for the great deal I got on the 6-cd set of Leonard Bernstein conducting all nine of Beethhoven's symphonies plus some overtures and concertos.

    NY, your comment reminded me that I guess I should be grateful to my mom for making me sit and watch every single one of those Leonard Bernstein's Young People's Concerts in the early 60s. No one in my family was musical (though my dad did have a short lived avocation as a drummer with Geoge Wein, the founder of the Newport Jazz Festival) and I never went to Symphony Hall in Boston, as a kid. But, watching those shows got me interested in classical music. Years later, when I moved to Miami in HS, one of my teachers used to take a bunch of us to see the Miami Philharmonic Orchestra monthly. We got cheap student seats, I would get dressed up (granny dresses!) and enjoy the teeny bit of culture in that cultural desert, in 1970-71.
