Gratitude Project – for finding clothing online

 Clothing that looks comfy, flattering, and easy to move in. It will be worn (out) because it is versatile, but I get to debut it at my son’s rehearsal dinner. So excellent shopping online day ~ and the items were on sale! *happy dance* This entry was originally posted at Please comment here or […]

Gratitude Project – for letting go

If you love something, set it free;If it comes back to you, it’s yours,If it doesn’t ……. No, no, no. Frankly that is bullshit. If it doesn’t come back to you, it is because you let it go. Duh. This a different kind of letting go. So I gave myself permission – finally, finally, finally […]

Gratitude Project – for sex!

Which needs no explanation. A good day (yesterday technically) that ended with a ….. okay, I won’t be that obvious. It is after midnight so this is counting for Sunday’s gratitude even though it is almost cheating to do it now. But now is when I have the boy’s laptop. And the desktop upstairs is […]

Gratitude project – for protection plans

Smartphone, laptop, eyeglasses. The only 3 things I buy them for. Trackpad being replaced on the laptop. (Did I break it by banging on it being angry on the Internet?? Hahaha) 3-5 days. Posting from the phone a PITA.. But grateful nonetheless. 🙂 This entry was originally posted at Please comment here or there […]

You remained calm and focused. For a gentle reminder without using those words that it is not my job to fix the world. My energy has limits, […]

Almost this time last year, add two months (gratitude project)

The Universe gifted me with a safe space a couple of times per week. It was unexpected, uncanny for where it occurred, and needed and delightful for its effects. The Web shakes the strings and what is needed arrives. Even when what is needed is not known. For someone with my past I cannot overstate […]

Gratitude Project – twisted creativity

 Always out of the loop on anything generally in the "pop culture" category, or "classic" category, or "cult" entertainment category for that matter – hhhmmm … okay, out of the loop me had never seen, read, nor was even aware of the story of _Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf_. For those who are aware of […]

Gratitude Project – for lack of hardcore earthquakes

 East Coast gets their own forms of natural disasters which rarely include earthquakes. Today was different, but even where part of a building went down in D.C. it appears no injuries, just a lot of "did the earth move for you, too" jokes and this graphic Grateful for not having to deal with more tragedy […]
