Day 16,644 Gratitude

It seems as though I have been on a constant quest for balance since the start of this year. I open my eyes each morning so grateful (and relieved) for a clean slate ... another opportunity to do a little better from knowing a little better. When my expectations exceed my resources, as they often do, I stop, breathe, and appreciate that I have so many options available to me. What an incredible world we live in and at such an incredible time! As much as I want to say yes to having, doing, and being it all, I am grateful to have a pretty good sense of what is and isn't feasible for me right now. I can savor what's on my plate in the moment without worrying about what's not there to go with it. Plenty of time. Plenty of patience. Plenty of peace. This is my mantra as everything around me beckons my participation in its frenzy of wild growth. Although my attendance here is among the things that have suffered, be assured that my gratitude abounds ...

Prom weekend. So much fun to watch the kids get dressed up and mug for the camera (whether they wanted to or not). So grateful for the beautiful weather that day.

The privilege of crocheting a Reiki blanket for a baby boy whose entry into this world came with complications. Holding him and those who love him in my thoughts and prayers.

Kate's Taos blog. Her magical photos. Fodder for dreaming my way West. Soon. Very soon.

Getting to know my new iPhone. Over the moon at the prospect of getting wee lenses for it.

Another Mandala Monday. A fresh, new mandala to share ... ready to download here.

As always, so grateful for YOU and your companionship here. Share with me what you've been giving thanks for this spring.
