IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

I cannot stay sober on yesterday's meetings or past Twelfth-Step calls; I need to put my gratitude into action today. ~Daily Reflections
.
Today I am grateful...
  • that I gave in and finally got a new printer. In doing so it let me get rid of my scanner which took up way too much counter space.
  • that I got the major part of the layout done for the large commission piece
  • that today is a holiday because I could not get to sleep easily last night and couldn't sleep past my usual waking time this morning--maybe two naps today?
  • that when I am able to pay attention there are plenty of things to learn, every day
  • that I can approach today with no resentments
  • that I, along with many, fight a different war, a war which seeks freedom from self

God is to be found in the "odd" things in life: The dance, relationships, Charlie Chaplin, jogging, the pet dog and the sincere hug. The adventure we find in life reflects our adventure in God. Spirituality is seeing beyond the ordinary into the extraordinary: "The Kingdom of God is within". ~Fr Leo

I need some sleep and hope to get some tonight. I had plenty on the boat but last night I was awake a lot.

This is about the 5th time in two days that I've been reminded to be grateful. Must need it...thanks.

i heard a story of a person buying a printer from a person (not a new one) and when she got it home, there was a snake in it.

i love creating extra space, i haven't been motivated to do that in some time.
