Speak kind words and you will hear kind echoes. ~unknown

Today I am grateful…

  • that I did not freeze to death the 45 minutes I was outside yesterday morning helping a client pick out a fountain vessel for his garden. The plains of Katy, TX with winds of 25 mph on such a cold day was hateful.
  • for comfort food of rotisserie chicken, garlic mashed potatoes and green beans following out outing
  • that although my built-in ‘attention seeking device’ is still functioning well I notice it more these days and it makes me uncomfortable
  • for the antihistamine eye drops my doctor recommended, they are helping my eyes and my nose. I also added a saline solution nasal spray to help alleviate this extreme dry nose that accompanies artificial heat.
  • that I have said my prayers, done my meditations and am ready to post this and fix some breakfast


Peace: Burial at Sea ~J. M. W. Turner

As I walked through the steps, I began to recognize that God was walking with me on this journey. In all my personal relationships, I began to see evidence of God working in my life to improve it. Over and over again I would see God guide and direct me. I was given opportunities for change. I was given strength, and I was given courage. I found myself doing things that I did not know I was capable of doing. Today I am convinced that each of the changes I have gone through on this journey have occurred only because God was leading me on this path. Seeing this evidence has only worked to strengthen my faith that my Higher Power is indeed caring for me. ~Wisdom for Today

I'm sorry about your breakfast.
Didn't know it was broken.
Have a warm day please.

I am living proof of your second quote. Every day I give it over..I get back a bit of heaven on earth.

Namaste (and dave made me giggle)

The ending quote is beautiful. A few years ago I would not even have understood it; now it leaves me in awe!

I liked the quote at the end of the post.

You offer a great encouragement on cloudy days.


Joy always,

Thanks for the quote Scott. I am letting myself get caught up in some sponsee drama and need to extricate from that. Just what I needed today.

Thanks for the post.
I love gratitude list. The wind in Katy, TX sounds terrible, but seems like you might have eaten well.
On New Years day I was happy to be sober and to having Satelitte Radio in my car as I drove the 8 hours down the state of California!

Have you tried putting a humidifier in your house?

I would have walked out to the pottery yard, pointed at the first vessel in the row and told the client "any fool in their right mind would pick that one."
But then, I'm a cubicle all day so what do I know.

The first thought on my mind this morning was nasal irrigation! LOL! A humidifier does help too.
