Gratitude Monday: In the Moment

Here I am at Monday again.  I love Mondays.

 

 Plus, this weekend I got to spend time with five of my favorite people: Mr. B, Miss K, Mr. R1, Mr. R2, and Mr. C.  Besides being delightful people, they kept me so busy with the here and now, that I had no time to think about yesterday or tomorrow.  Ahh…. And now tomorrow is the here and now. So besides the pleasure of weekend guests, which is top on my list, here are a few of the things I pause to give thanks:

 Crazy weather: Sunshine, hail, sunshine, snow, sunshine. Piles of round pellets of hail hiding in the corner of my balcony, while daffodils danced in the sunshine. All this, followed by a day of windy warmness, and today back to winter weather.  I do believe I got the pleasure of a full year’s  within 48 hours.

 Sturdy daffodils dancing in the sun, wind, rain, and snow.  What can be more hopeful and promising that?  Perhaps the light blue snow-drops blossoming under the birch. Quiet and discreet, they whisper poetry, while the daffodils sing.

 Yoga with Christine.  I love what has become a Monday morning routine.

 Funny auto-correct texts.  This morning CeCe sent me a message that she is “do yogurt this morning.”  Now that’s really, really busy.

Rocking chairs.   Ahhhhh…. quiet blessing.

 Newspaper writing. I just love everyone I meet through my free-lance writing work.  So many interesting lives.  So many fascinating stories.

 A (somewhat) clean desk. I’ve had this on my list for a couple of weeks.  Now I see the surface.  Yay!

  1. I love the idea of gratitude on Monday! Perfect day for it. I’m grateful for a rare cousins get together on Long Island this past weekend, even despite the typical NY traffic! To see my cousins, like me, all grown up and with grandchildren there, well, you might think that would be ghastly, but it was lovely.

      That sounds lovely to me, Deborah. We have a reunion every August at my mom’s farm. The aunts and uncles are dwindling, but the cousins still come. Amazing how much they are looking like their parents. I bet they think the same thing of me!

  2. I love your gratitude list. Today I am grateful for surviving The Walking Dead season finale. Happy I got a work-out in today, too! And I am loving the lush roses on my table, the sound of water cascading from my fountain and the general hush of late afternoon.

      I love the horror/sci-fi genre. For some reason, zombiesjust don’t grab me. Still, I get a kick out of “iZombie.”
      Wow, it sounds like you’re surrounded by sensory wonderfulness. So great that you recognize the beauty that is yours.
