gratitude-a-thon day 763: everyday gifts


There are some gifts that I get all year round. Seems sort of appropo that I mention them during this holiday season.

  1. My trainer moved to California. We still do a Skype session every week. I should say she is not just my trainer, SHE IS ALSO MY FRIEND/SISTER/PARTNER IN CHANGING THE WORLD. I love her so much, for her intelligence, and grace, and for having my back, LITERALLY. Also, she is one of the people who can make me laugh until I cry UNCLE.
  2. I have some of the most extraordinary friends. Old, new, deep, Facebook. This is a stroke of big time luck. Friends are what keeps me going like the Energizer bunny. Without them, I’d be nuthin’.
  3. I get a massage every other week. This is a little indulgence I have granted myself. My masseusse can literally transform me in an hour. Her talent defies description, but she is also super smart, and she helps me to see what might be causing all the knots, too.
  4. My dog Riley keeps me balanced when insanity roars. I never knew a canine could or would play such an important role in my life.
  5. I have some Facebook friends who keep me going when I’m stuck at my computer doing work. We will have a short conversation, or joke around, or share a picture, and that little break will perk me up to finish my project. I should also say, that the love I feel from so many people on Facebook, who I don’t see ever, or even know that well, except through Facebook, feels real and sincere. Old high school friends who I didn’t know well back then, new friends I would like to know more. I know there’s lots of stuff that goes down on FB that makes people think it’s shit, but for me, it’s been nothing but fun.
  6. I am always super grateful for all of my family, from cousins, to my sisters, husband and kids. GRATEFUL CUP RUNNETH OVER.
  7. Don’t you just love a good candle? Sometimes that’s all I need. A good candle.
  8. Transparent, Season 2, so beautifully written and composed, it inspired me to think more about story telling.
