Felt grateful today for my father in law helping out with some additional responsibilities due to my wife being away.
Was the glue that held everyone's plans together - never a negative word.

I am so glad for all the help and instruction I received at the MSF course which allowed me to pass my motorcycle driving test easily. Thank you Ray & John and whoever wrote all the material and designed the drills. I had a blast taking the course!
It fulfilled a longterm wish I've had about getting back onto a motorcycle.

He prepared lunch for me and remains patient since we are currently separated physically due to self isolation required - for health reasons.
I feel valued and loved and that he will always be there for me no matter what.

Enjoyed gentle, cool breezes while on the deck meditating.
Though moving far from home and family has so far been an unmitigated psychological and emotional difficulty, living on the beach is a privilege certainly not to be overlooked -- especially when siblings far away are experiencing uncomfortable triple-digit temperatures.

Felt grateful today looking out my bedroom window to live in a stable home in a nice/supportive community.
It reminded me how lucky I am to have this stability and the reduced strss that comes with it. Also reminded me how important a safe community is to live in and how this experience needs to be shared with all persons from all walks of life.

Grateful for a loving family.
Though parents are long gone, it's good to know there are still two brothers and two sisters who have shoulders to cry upon, should I call in the favor.

I shared my experience in a funny way to put her mind at ease.
I was glad that unintentionally I was helpful.

Youngest son called to chat about his camping trip and give me the low down on all the deers and trash pandas (raccoons) that he had seen that day.
Just made me feel appreciated and loved by my son (even if the call was only a small action on his part)

Felt grateful for my father in law lending me his ebike so I could go onna wondeful ride to meet a good friend and on the way feel the wind on my face.
Experience made me feel happy to still be able to experience these moments even with heart disease (just have to be careful).

I met with a career coach today and I wasn't sure what to expect.
Whatever it was, it blew me away. She is going to be such a great resource and I am so thankful to now have her in my life.

I set up my older son's end of baseball season pizza party with players and coaches. Was thanked by coaches and parents alike for finding the time to set this up after what has been a tumultuous pandemic year.
Felt that my efforts were duly recoginzed and appreciated. Would have done it anyways without the thanks, but appreciative of the thanks nonetheless.

A beautiful sunrise on a warm, breezy morning while I enjoy my first pot of tea on the deck. Birds are singing. Crickets are chirping.
I feel so fortunate to live here and have so many great things around me.

Enjoyed a drive and walk down the mountain after dropping the gang off for mountain biking.
Grateful to be part of the beautiful and magical mountain scenery. You can truly feel the difference of the mountain air. Always magical if you maintain awareness.
