Today I am grateful for..

a surprise visit from my two favorite young people yesterday afternoon.  Kate had a business appointment – her wedding photography business is booming – and Trevor and I watched the game together.  Nice…so nice…

a beautiful blue sky and sunny fall morning.

bittersweet memories of a pumpkin patch, lessons on soybeans, pork roasts with spatzle, chicken with wild rice soup, a speech about the masks we wear, lessons on throwing a baseball, a long walk amid the fall leaves…

I am blessed.  You are too.

Today I am grateful for…

…a day of rest…the paper, coffee, a fire, Terry, Howie and the boys, then the game with Trevor.

…a feeling of accomplishment. do-over.me is moving forward because of the generous gifts of their time by Richard, Keith, Brad, Doris, Sam, Omar, Kathy, Todd, Charlotte and Natasha. You guys ROCK!

…the opportunity to do work that really matters.

…the ability to say yes to enjoying doing nothing.

Today I am grateful for…

…a fabulous weekend.

…drinks and The Judge on Friday night with the girls.  It was a really intense character driven movie about the classic conflict between fathers and sons.  I recommend it.

…a beautiful Saturday…a couple of walks with Bella, finished a book and started another…lots of productive work…

…a Bears’ win on Sunday.  Lots of good packing and planning for do-over.me’s moving adventure (Check it out at http://www.do-over.me/news/2014/10/11/its-official-do-overme-is-moving-into-our-new-home-at-1141-commerce-drive-in-geneva) with Kate, Michele and Scott.

Attitudes of Gratitude – October 9, 2014

Today I am grateful for…

…opportunities to grow and change.  I enjoy looking at the TBT pics on Facebook to see how people change through the years.  I wish there were a method to visually capture the internal changes as well as the external ones.

…meaningful work.  I am blessed to be in the right place at the right time for the right reasons at do-over.me.  This is a cutting edge concept whose time is NOW.  We are making a difference in people’s lives.  Watch for two new success stories coming soon.  More pigs are flying!

…beautiful music…Streisand’s new album and Tony Bennett’s Duets II.  Listening to him always reminds me of my mother.  Tony Bennett was her favorite crooner.

I am blessed.  You are too.
