Saturday at the races...




This is a shot from yesterday, across the back part of the gardens and down to the pond. It was an excruciatingly hot day, and thankfully the storms rolled in last night and cooled things off some. The heat index was only 103...

The gardens are going to be my life before long, lol, at least for a couple of months. It looks like we'll be having a bountiful harvest. The squash are blooming now too. The corn got a little laid down by the rains and winds last night, but I think they'll recover alright.

The computer was unplugged last night because of the lightning and so I didn't get a chance to even come online after getting home from the meeting. It was good meeting, all in all. Took a couple of newcomers and then home again.

Feeling blessed today, even though things aren't perfect in my life and lots of little issues are bobbing around. But it's all small stuff, and as long as I don't sweat the small stuff, I'll be alright. I did have a moment today, I must admit. But I went in the other room and sat there talking to my Creator for a little bit and things came back into perspective. I'm especially grateful that I have that in my life today. The ability and the capability to hand things over when I finally realize it's too much for me to handle on my own.

Especially blessed to be:
*Sober
*Healthy
*Loved
*Breathing
*Spiritual, in a Howdy Doody kind of a way
*On good terms with almost everyone I know
*F-L-E-X-I-B-L-E (*wink)
*Relatively calm in the face of annoying everyday stuff


Gratitude is a gift I choose every day. It has changed my life, practicing an attitude of gratitude, and I hope I never forget that.

Creator and I are having some kind of fun today!!!!!


Namaste.

I'm sorry you are feeling out of sorts. I think I know what you are feeling, sort of. Sometimes it just feels like everything is broken, and nothing is right. I sure do get that way sometimes.

I also know I can only do the best I can, asking to guided and directed towards what is good and right. Or something.

Oh yes, you are Loved.
