3 things on December 20th

Well – I did say a few days ago I was grateful for time to myself and I am glad to have taken more. I am grateful for the respite from teaching; I am grateful to have dinner with baby bird; I am grateful for heat and blankets and a warm home. #3things #gratitude #choosejoy

Tonight’s 3 things, Dec 17 2021…it’s almost over

I try to find joy. I really work hard at it some days – and some days it just comes. Some days I have really search and work to reframe – some days it smacks me in the face. And the really fun days are when it does both – moment to moment. Today I am grateful for every moment. I’m learning in each one and that’s what I truly strive for; I am grateful for time to myself to reflect and appreciate every moment; I am grateful for the support of my tribe…it’s a loving, validating, accepting tribe. #3things #gratitude #choosejoy

3 things on this 16th day of December 2021

Today I am grateful for time to myself for some self care and look forward to my massage tomorrow; I am grateful for my journey but I am ready for a new path…and as I tire I appreciate the rest; I am grateful for Charlotte and her mama to be healthy safe at home. #choosejoy #3things #gratitude

1 thing x3 – Daily Gratitude

My 2nd granddaughter has arrived! She is just as magnificent as the first, of course. I am so grateful for her safe and healthy arrival – I promise I do not take it for granted – not even a little bit. What a joy to be a grandmother, and quite a special honor. #choosejoy #gratitude #3things

December 13, 2021 Daily Gratitude

Today’s 3 things; I am grateful for the early Christmas gifts I got from my colleagues today – a nice surprise; I am grateful that the kids are home from school; I heard a great analogy from my God Mother yesterday…she said ICU only lets healthy people in the room. She was referring to my life and my desire to help someone when it’s not a healthy choice or my responsibility to do so. I am healing and need to take care of of myself first. #choosejoy #3things #gratitude #hardchoices

December 9, 2021 – My chilly 3 things of daily gratitude

As the days get a little colder and the nights get a little longer I am reminded that my warm home should not ever be taken for granted, however cozy; I am grateful for sweaters and hoodies that keep my neck warm; I am grateful (and spoiled) for having a car that I can start with my remote from inside – don’t even get me started on how awesome the seat warmers are on those cold mornings! #gratitude #choosejoy 3things
