I’m grateful for the karma that brought me to California. Never have I regretted my decision to live here. I’m grateful for a few days away from the computer and from work. I enjoy my profession, but sometimes I just need it to stop. And, I’m grateful for on-line recipes and recipe books. I don’t follow them very often (like most people) but, like vacation brochures, they’re just nice to browse.
I’m grateful for a crystal clear, cool California day. A beautiful day – perfect weather – is free, and we all enjoy it the same. I’m grateful that despite the pandemic, race wars, and horrific politics, we have all grown more compassionate, and are much better at dealing with disappointment and change than we were a year ago. And, I’m grateful that I have a healthy relationship with money. Money is a commodity, but so is time, tranquility, and love. Balance in all things.
I’m grateful for a quiet Monday and another beautiful California day. I’m grateful that I’ve continued to exercise patience with cyclists who ride on the sidewalk and pedestrians who walk in the street, and I’m grateful for pizza; it never disappoints.
I’m grateful for a small break in the heat. It was almost cool this morning, and it was a good reminder of why I love California so. I’m grateful I got my sprinklers fixed a few months ago. They’ve really helped conserve water. And I’m grateful for the late summer brown and gold of the garden. Each season is beautiful.
