For This, I’m Thankful

Sarah’s list is much more body/senses oriented than my list:

I am thankful for…creativity…..

curiosity and the ability to reason……

sensitivity to beauty, art, music, dance, poetry, ritual,

appreciation of nature……family……

friends…..

the ability to read and write…..

emergence……

sleep……

consciousness……

humor……

the observation that our fear of death lessens as we age……

the fact that we faint when physical pain exceeds our bearable limits,  etc.

Breaking Sarah - Bruised, Not Broken

With Thanksgiving almost upon us, I wanted to be aware of and thankful for the little things in life:

  • my husband, of course, my sons, my best friend and my little doggie
  • waking up on the weekend and just laying in bed for a while with my honey
  • the first smell of rain hitting the ground
  • my morning cup of coffee
  • that first taste of something delicious and sinful
  • sipping that perfect glass of wine
  • fresh air and the warm feeling of the sun on my back
  • nature – trees, flowers, creeks and rivers, oceans, amazing landscapes
  • a crisp sunrise or a warm sunset
  • when I actually see the look of love in someones’ eyes
  • a gentle but strong hug
  • watching animals frolick around
  • getting into a nice warm bed on a cold night
  • decorating for the holidays and enjoying holiday music

I am sure there are more but these came to mind…

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
