Gratitude Monday: Abundance

Today I’m taking Amtrak to visit Mom.  Of course the first two things on my list are Mom and Amtrak.  There so many reasons I’m thankful for Mom. She a good person and a good role model, and she’s really, really strong.  Plus, she shared some of her genes with me, so I’m on my way to being good and strong, too!

I have the senior discount for Amtrak (Yay! for persistence and health!) The tickets are really reasonable.  I love Amtrak because it’s comfortable, and it has WiFi.  I can read or write or nap or look out the window or visit with a neighbor.  Today I will write Flash Fiction and enter a contest.

Comfort zone busting.  Yes, that was me on FB live.  Holy Guacamole, that was super-tough, and I feel silly.  But, hey, I did it. And I’m entering a contest.  Another comfort zone busing experience.  If you didn’t see me on FaceBook, here’s a photo.  I’m much more comfortable with stills.

Loved One and I have enough produce from our garden to share and to preserve.

I have a whole lot of other things on my gratitude list this week: health, friends, beautiful weather, people who love me. But I have a train to catch.

Is it enough to say that I feel really blessed to have so many people who love me and support me.  My life is truly abundant.

What’s on your gratitude list this week? Please leave a comment.  What you share almost always makes me count another blessing.

  1. I am grateful the heat and humidity have disappeared, finally! It is a beautiful sunny day to start a busy week. I’m blessed to have a great life and always grateful for it!

      Yes, indeed. The cooler, drier weather is a blessing.

  2. I love that picture of you! I am filled with gratitude today and one is a fabulous weekend with good friends from Ohio and a couple of days before spent with a blogging buddy and her husband from Minnesota. Now it is spending time with my beloved in Alabama with a trip to Seattle at the end of the week. My cup overflows!

      Whoa, Beth Ann, I’m feeling exhausted and revitalized at the same time, reading your comment. Isn’t it wonderful to have such great friends, and a great companion to share them with? Me too!
