Gratitude Monday: Happy Mother’s Day

First of all, Thank you Mom, for providing such a beautiful template to follow.  As we all say, “If my kids someday feel about me the way I feel about you, I will have succeeded.”  Patient, kind, loving, hard-assed, and occasional screaming banshee fit thrower.  You expected the best from me and gave me your all.  Thank you!

In no particular order, here’s what came to mind Sunday afternoon:

  1. Good knees:  So many people I know suffer from weak-knees (literally and figuratively.)  I’m thankful my literal knees are holding up so I can Zomba, hula-hoop, move rocks, lift weights, and climb hills.  I thankful for strong figurative knees, too.  I can thank Mom for teaching me not to be weak-kneed.
  2. Noosa yogurt :  Ooooo it’s the best.  Noosa is so smooth and rich, it’s like eating the full fatted yogurt.  Yes, it’s 280 calories for 8 ounces with 14 grams of protein.  Add some wheat crackers and I’ve got a good lunch.
  3. Thick hair:  A little thinning, but still thick.  Yes, I must use a shine enhancer and pomade to keep those wiry silver ones in place, but a least they are there.
  4. Thoughtful children:  I am exhausted from the pampering of four grown children and their families.
  5. Koi:  They survived the winter and a couple of hungry hawks that are still circling my water garden.
  6. Houseplants:  I have a continuous supply of green all year long.  This week they are going outside for their annual adventure in the wilds of nature.
  7. Duckyisms:  Ah she makes me laugh.  Today it was, “I’m as sharp as a doorknob.”  Me too, Duckie, me too.
  8. Chocolate:  Especially with caramel, especially with nuts, especially dark, or milk, or semi-sweet.  Especially.
  9. Church:  A place to worship, meditate, meet friends, and play my flute.  What a great way to start each week.
  10. Laurel:  You remind me to start each week focusing on abundance.  Life is good.Check out who else is on the Gratitude Monday Link-up.  Monday, Monday, You can trust that day.

  1. What a nice list. I’m glad for your knees, too. Keeps me hopeful my knees will be fine later on 🙂

      Take care of your knees. I know so many people who have aching joints. Me, just a little shoulder ache from time to time. I’m lucky, so far.

  2. Wow! This is so nice. Thank you for sharing this great list.
