JUNE Grateful 4 Moments…

Hello! Once again, finding inspiration from Everyday Gurus monthly thanksgiving reflection, I humbly follow expressing simply my blessings throughout the month of June.

Grateful for: opera singers; my mom ♥ cayenne spice; backyard BBQ nights; clear blue skies after torrential rain and flooding; poison ivy/oak spray killer; aloe vera gel to soothe dry skin; electrical power outages–the force that gets me doing things not normally done namely, de-clutter & paperwork…

…pocket-size calculators; finding old textbooks (free) with relevant interesting info; big spiders that die on their own–so awful when you must smack them dead;  fancy refrigerator magnets; a stray cat that decided to come over, eat some, then relax and chill out while my cat looked at him…

…finding a tick on my shoulder because it reminded me to pray for those affected detrimentally by nasty tick bites; not hitting any river turtles while driving as they randomly cross the highway due to recent rivers flooding (poor things); a Cuban sandwich lunch; a no rain day; hot tin roof ice-cream; cool summer evening ☺

Grateful for: ceiling fans that work; balanced check book; clothes hangers to keep things looking neat and tidy; tough garbage bag liners; durable, easy to clean reusable water bottles; weekly photo challenges; book by Erin McHugh: One Good Deed ; pencil/pen magnetic holders; ice-cube trays when auto ice maker breaks down; finding out about harem yoga pants; time to do some blog housekeeping; learning about WordPress page attributes and the drop down title listing…

trustworthy air conditioner service repair person who got the cool air running again! pretzel snack; mocha coffee slush drink; a women’s charitable organization that helps women coming out of prison to start back on the right road; beautiful orange lilies growing profusely in the yard; homemade brownies; flip-flops aka rubber slippers;

sick days because it’s a reminder 2 let everything be; Ninja blender because hot summer weather needs slushy drinks in hand; my legs that move me wherever I want to go; my hands because they work hard doing everything i ask from typing on keyboard to holding up a book to read; ice cubes because cold water tastes so much better than lukewarm; vanilla milkshakes in the heat of a summer afternoon; glittery body spray because the light fragrance and sparkles help take your mind off the intense hot summer air blowing all around you…

Clayton McDonald because this young man left the world a powerful message: “life is very short…it’s a vapor...” (Video and full story on Have You Met Clayton Mcdonald)

Grateful for: new ☼sunROOM page; finding out about a rare disease, Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), because i can pray for a cure; inside window ledges because little plants can feel @ home year round; soft, extra absorbent bath rugs…toes & feet oasis; $1.00 hardcover (excellent condition) book sale buys: The Mermaid Chair & Water for Elephants; Spam pasta salad … not healthy but yummy! black forest ham with egg sandwich–delicious ♥ magnesium oil because it’s a natural way to restore magnesium levels within the body

…denim fabric because of its durability and timeless dimension; snakes that keep rat population in check; people who teach you to stay strong in your decisions despite their insistent methods to try to break you down; 15-min power nap; nice new WordPress dashboard updated look; the neighbors who finally mowed their yard…their grass was so long even the snakes and rats moved out; old movie called Cemetary Club because it reminds you to appreciate life and those who care about you; getting a water test kit…just have to figure it out now…

…yoga pose – Salamba Sirsasana or head stand pose; 3 ring binders to help organize my paper life; sandal and shorts weather; simple Friday afternoons at home ☺the opportunity to photograph a children’s theater dress rehearsal; giggly little children not listening very well to stage instructions; wriggly little children in full costume and rubbing off their stage makeup; extra time to read blog posts; big fan in garage to keep Chuckles, the blog dog, cool in 100 degree weather…

summer heat

Grateful for: homemade greeting cards; busyness of Monday morning; my outdoor cat that takes the dive bombs from birds in peaceful manner…she just keeps walking without a care. ☺ not jack knifing a trailer – first time driving one; when you get lost down a dirt country road, the neighbors all know each other & easily direct you to your destination; pull away type cat collars; pretzel sticks that have tons of salt on them…

…having an early morning getting the to-do list checked off before sunrise; making it in on time for the monthly peace challenge; a dead tree in yard – now home for birds…maybe woodpecker. not sure. there are round holes everywhere; outdoor cat finally taking down the bird that dive bombed her incessantly. what now, bird!?!?

Thank you.

For those who celebrate the Fourth of July…

A blessed and safe one to you and your loved ones.
