February 12, 2010

Today I am Grateful for:

Surprises. This morning when I looked at my email I had a Facebook notification from someone I have know for years that friended me. I haven't seen him in a long time. The surprise I am grateful for is that it looks like he has gotten sober. Yeah for him. I haven't had a chance to talk to him, but I will and I hope life is good for him.

My Blogging Friends. It is so great to hear from you all and to be able to read what is going on in your lives. It's really wonderful to witness the experiences you all are having on a day to day basis. It's great to be a part of your lives in some way.

The continuous rain we are having. I'm appreciating that my lawn is green and any plants that make it through this Houston winter season will thrive from all the water they are getting. I am grateful I am not on the east coast under numerous feet of snow. I can complain I'm wet and cold, but I'm so glad I'm not out there shoveling snow.

The here and now. It's not what I plan it to be, but I'm okay with what it is.


  1. Good morning. I got used to that first severe cold weather we had. Then it warmed up and since then I cannot get used to the cold again. Brrrrrr. I, too, am grateful we are not dealing with snow.

  2. Learning to accept the here and now is an on-going process. Gratitude seems to be the quickest way to get there. Happy Friday.

  3. Here too. We had a horrible drought two years ago so I am not complaining about that my front yard now qualifies and a wetland.

    Happy Friday!


  4. Oh to have a Houston Winter! :)

    Here's to the here & now - thanks for remindnig me to stay in it
