The cold weather I woke up to this morning. I'm glad to have a nice, comfortable bed to have good dreams in. :)
I appreciate waking up to summer sunshine, having friends tell me i take beautiful pictures, i looked in the mirror today and noticed my effort at the gym showing.
Today I am grateful for:
On Friday I mentioned to a friend that I could really "use" a neat dolphin encounter.
Today I SO appreciate the amazing dolphin encounter I had today with a very unusual and friendly wild dolphin!
You post inspired me to share this encounter I had back in the early 90s. I was at the beach in New Jersey, not exactly the dolphin capital of the world, and I was meditating. I had just introduced my brother to one of my best friends, hoping she would like him and want to date him. As I meditated on that very early morning, I said to the Universe, "If my brother and my friend are supposed to be together, when I open my eyes I will see a dolphin." I meditated long and hard. Finally, when I opened my eyes, hoping to at least see a dolphin surface diving in the distance, I saw TWO dolphins surface diving and playing so close to shore that I was tempted to swim out and join them. My brother and my friend were married within the year. Man, I love this life!!
I am SO especially grateful today.
Yesterday I took my boys to the dragon park and we were the only ones there. I wished I had called Judy and invited her and Philip. I turned my head and there she was, walking up from the street. This is on the opposite side of town from our neighborhood. We had an excellent time chatting and laughing. Then more boys showed up, some from our school, and mine had a wonderful time playing with them until we left.
Then we went to the farmer's market. My guys were incredibly well-behaved there for the first time ever. One of the farmers even gave them each a little bitty green apple for free.
I am grateful for the way I handled my husband's frustration and anger when I got home because his shoe was lost. He did not change my vibrations at all! Not one bit! But I think I diffused his tension. Go, me!
I am extremely grateful that he is letting me keep his check card! Life is so much easier this way. I will not overspend.
I am extremely grateful for the way I have stayed calm for several days.
I am grateful for the new dryer we will be getting because our old one finally went to dryer heaven. It will be a rare deal and will work like a charm and save us money on energy as long as we live here, and for many years to come if we take it with us to the new house.
I am grateful that my haircut is tolerable and actually kind of nice now. I had been down about it, but now it looks pretty good. Just had to figure out how to manage it. Grateful that I did!
I am grateful that my husband is finally full-time at his new job, and that he likes it so much better than the other place. He did get the amount I had been visualizing, BUT-- it is not his salary. The exact amount I visualized was the total of the company's compensation package-- salary plus medical benefits. Oh well. Live and learn. He's still making the same, but not any less, and the stress is waaaay down. So, hooray!
Very grateful for my upcoming school schedule. Two days a week! YES!
Grateful that my room is now painted and the new headboard ($75, never used, just around the corner in my neighborhood) is attached. My room looks pretty good now.
My boys got the teachers I requested!
A wonderful day at our friend's friend's pool with two other pairs of brothers the same ages and one other little guy. Grateful for knowing other mothers who are on my wavelength.
Everything is aligning for us to move to a better school zone. It is happening! I'm visualizing the For Sale sign in the yard.
Here's the biggest one, though: One of my close friends has been been pregnant with a baby with holoprosencephaly. She wasn't expected to survive birth. She wasn't expected to have two eyes. She was expected to not have a nose, but instead there would be an odd protruberance on her forehead. Well... she was born last night at midnight with two beautiful eyes, a flat nose that is bent into a cleft lip, but I bet it could be fixed, and she is 4 lbs 3 oz and is going to live! I say she is going to live and come home and I keep visualizing her running into my kitchen as she and her brother and sister and mom arrive at my house for a playdate. So many miracles so far, and they will keep coming!
My loving girlfriend!
My parents who gave me a wonderful childhood, and wondeful foundation of the man I am becoming!
My brothers, sister, and extended family for just being there!
My guitars and the skills I have (and will continue to improve)!
Myself for being so motivated!
Every person that has come into my life (good or bad)!
Life in general!
Everything I will attract!
The entire world!
