Enhanced vision

Well the other day, I stepped on my glasses and yep, time for a new pair.  I was thinking that I wanted a new pair and was delaying the process. Well the Universe stepped in - literally.  I pulled out my old pair and even though my vision has not much changed these last few years I needed to keep them as a backup so yesterday off to VisionWorks.  Though my jingle-jangle in my pockets has been lessened, I am super grateful for the technology of optometry.  With glasses I get to see lots more of the bits of this n that that my unaided eyes would miss and driving would be out of the question.  So thank you to those dedicated professionals that make my life more

Thinking about the young woman under the Tree of Knowledge in the typical Four of Cups, I wondered about whether there is evidence of disenchantment or just a comfortable knowing that the Universe will provide her with the something something she is looking for. 
Today I am grateful for the warmth of my home.  Overnight there was a bit of ice accumulation and some lost their electricity in the early morning hours and are still without.  Brr.
I have all I need and if the Universe wants to offer me something extra, I am okay with that.

Lovely bits of this n that to enchant me throughout my day.
Birds on the wing.
Honking songs from geese overhead.
Smile from a stranger.
Smile to a stranger.
Winter's first snowflake.
Hot bowl of soup.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the Beholder.
If we can learn to look beyond the superficial, what wonder is there to see.  If I can learn to look below my fear and anger to the wonder of Carolyn, good, great.  If I can do the same for others, Wowza!  Thank goodness I have today to give myself this opportunity.  Tomorrow maybe, but since tomorrow is not promised.
Grateful for another day.

Beast of Burden

There have been times in my life that I have shouldered too much and too many things.  Thankfully those days I think are over.  I do not over extend myself and in doing so others get to step up.  I am glad for this.  Lessons. Dependability. Success. Life.
Step away from the helm and let another take on 'all that stuff' I have enough to contend with and to be happy with just minding my own store. 
Thankfully my life goes on. Still much to learn, take care, get done, enjoy.  Salute!

Thank you!

Today I want to state gratitude for two things.  First this lovely card that arrived in the mail yesterday, a new rendition from Sue Lion.  A greeting card I purchased with the money that I have earned from the clients that I am grateful that I get to work with.  I bought the card because she is a mermaid and the artistry is lovely.  I am going to frame her and keep her for my personal enjoyment.

Trees, our witness of time eternal. I wonder what they think of us? Probably not much as we chop and hack at them.  Raise them in farms for mass production of paper, wood, and resin products. 
I am grateful for the wonderful Fall Foliage display they are giving us and of course all the live sustaining oxygen they produce. I wonder how many people realize that they are destroying their own future; no trees no O2. 
Thank you for all the trees everywhere, that they continue to do the best that they can do, and forgive us our trespasses.

House mates

Thank goodness for pets.  I have not had one for awhile, so the time has come.  Christmas is close at hand and I believe I will gift myself with a dog or cat.  I believe a cat will win out.  There is an older girl at the local shelter here that is six year old that has been at the shelter for months.  She sounds just about perfect for me and her name is Kitty.
Also grateful for all the people that volunteer at shelters everywhere.  Salute!

Wow, what a view is to be had up there.  Still there are wondrous things to behold all around me/us.  I almost lost my vision when I was injured years ago.  The doctors were fairly sure I would be blind, from all the dirt and debris embedded in my eyes. Thankfully my sister called their attention to my eyes when their main concern was for my head wound and broken vertebras. For days I would ask for the time, not realizing that only one minute has passed. (drove the family crazy)
I am so grateful that my I retained my vision and for all that I get to behold.  Thank you.
ps I am also grateful that I can read a clock. Ha!

There is nothing more perfect than the sky.  Seemless blue or gathered clouds, it is still perfection.  The sky is not the limit but a view of limitless, and we are gifted it with everyday.  Thank you.   I will take a moment to go outside and stretch my arms open and wide and express my gratitude for the all that there is.

Foundational info

Most of what we learn is in observance of others.  Something like 60 or 70 percent of what we know is learned before we even get to the classroom.  I am sure that my parents passed along and taught some crap, most of what they learned from their parents.  Still I learned many things, colors, numbers, talking, food, walking and running, playing in backyards, big hugs of comfort when I was hurt.  Laughter.  I am grateful for all the things that others taught me, the good and the not so good.  From that education I could make my own choices.  Thank you to my parents and other contributing adults that helped me begin my journey.
