Gratitude? Yes Please!!!

*Crystal’s note: another submission from last year:) Thanks Andy!*

I am grateful for many things, big and small.
Where to start… where to start.
Ooooh, I know! The song ‘Wonderwall’!
Down to business, it’s time to list
All these amazing things… you get the gist.
My fingers, my toes, my ears and my nose.
Long walks on the beach
A ripe slice of peach
My good mate Cheech
And Chong
An old fashioned song
My house is often overlooked
But without it i’d be cooked
No where to sleep
No where to eat
Nothing of my own but something things in a sheet?
All of this and more, is what I am grateful for.
The birds and the bees
A breeze through the trees
Laughter and sunshine
A small glass of good wine
Friends and family who accept me for me
Even when its difficult they follow the beatles and just let it be
The internets resources
A ride through the meadows, bareback on horses
My dog and best mate
Yeah he’s cool, and he never comes late.
That’s all for now, i’ve said my two cents
Rhyming ain’t easy, but thats common sense!
Peace, Andy

*Crystal’s note: I found this in the “guest post” area, pending, from last year! Oops! I’m not sure who submitted it, but it’s beautiful nonetheless. Enjoy.*

Trying Out This Site

Taking a watercolor class with my friend Kim. Always wanted to do that and finally decided I was worth it! Really enjoying the class, time spent with friends, and time for me.

And surprisingly not feeling any guilt about the money or time spent away from home.

Being able to take a vacation day from work to spend some time with my daughter before she starts her next semester at college. Looking forward to our Tuesday!

Looking out the window and seeing my beautiful, colorful garden. I look out the window at the pinks, purples and reds and just smile. And it’s freshly weeded!

Discovering a tiny (about 3/4″), lime green frog perched on the leaf of my rose bush, just hangin’ out. I rushed in to try and identify it using the internet, but no luck. You’d be amazed what comes up when you google “tiny irridescent green frog”.

Realizing that the japanese beetles are slowing down.

Looking out the window while I’m writing this list and seeing the hummingbird I’ve been looking for all summer! Last year he was around all the time, but this year I’ve only seem him one other time.

Having a Sunday that’s not overcast and rainy so I can dry my clothes on the line. It makes me happy to look out and see them swaying in the breeze.

Having a lead on another part time job.

Grateful to Ruth and Kylia for showing me this journal.
