Today’s Gratitudes ~

I am grateful that it is Friday!

I am grateful for that wonderful region of New Zealand called Marlborough, where they produce the crispest, most refreshing and delicious Sauvignon blancs that all come with screw tops;

I am grateful that Mindy has started blogging her own gratitudes, and I hope that each of you reading this think about your blessings in an affirmative way every single day, even if you are not so self-indulgent as to blog about them;

I am grateful for the people in my life, old and new, who surprise me on a daily basis with their humor, their wisdom, their whimsy, their concern, their support, and the magical ways they change me and they change my life for the better;

I am grateful for perspectives gained through trials and tribulations;

I am grateful for my spectacular daughter; and

I am grateful for my dogs, past and present, that love me and have loved me with reckless abandon and my horses, my dreams come true.

I will be grateful on Monday if every person who reads this post has a happy, healthy and safe weekend.

And here is a promise to you – I am not going to publish my gratitudes every single day.  I will publish regularly, though (sorry for that – I am self centered and self indulgent).

  2. I am Grateful for being able to get to know you and call you a friend. I love your spirit, I admire your ability to be strong and vulnerable in the same moment. If it had not been for that vulnerability we would not have connected and I thank you for that. You are a true gem of a person. So many wonderful facets and ways you shine. Keep shining sister! 🙂
