I received a very nice email from my friend and former English professor.
The email made me feel like our friendship is alive and well. He invited my wife and me out to a vacation home he recently purchased near us. This was a very nice gesture.

I went to the gas station today and had to check the tire pressure of my car. One of the service boys from car wash came over and insisted that he wanted to do it for me as a favor. While he inflated my tires he told me that I reminded him of his grandmother back home because she had the same kind of dress that I wore today. What a sweet thing to say and what a nice gesture of him to assist me. I told him that I was very grateful but because he did not understand the word I rephrased it and told him, that he made me smile and I was very happy with his help. He understood and left with a smile on his face.

My mother in law helped me prepare my lunch. She was very senior and not supposed to do any chores.
Her help saved me time and gave me a suprise that I was exempted once doing the thing I don't like.

In the shower this morning I thought how I take this simple pleasure for granted - how much I'd miss it if I didn't have the shower facility and so much more so if I wasn't physically able to wash myself.

My Coworker got me a very nice cake and some cocktails for my birthday.
They made my birthday special.

My back is improving as I release the held emotions stored in my cells and make room for the energy to move through me.
It reminded me how much my mood improves when I am able to recognize and release any kind of energy, physical or otherwise, that is keeping me from being fully myself and alive.

I felt grateful to be able to hear the birds loud and clearly this morning. Their busy tweets and cheeps were a delight and a respite from the ongoing noise from the freeway close by. It just happened that the wind was in the right direction to numb the freeway and reinforce the wonderful delight of conversation between the many species. This rare condition might easily have eluded me but somehow I was in the moment, observant and was rewarded.

Like HelleB, I too am inspired by Giedre's pictures and posts ... as well as thankful for all the "Thnxers" expressions of gratitude here. Grateful this week for the major "attitude adjustments" and turns of fortune that have transformed feelings of despair and sadness surrounding being uprooted from the life, family and home I'd known to this place of beauty and joy.

It's winter time and it's time for me to enjoy wintersweet flower. I was standing beside a flower tree and was immersed in the pleasant smell.
It just gave me a natrual pleasure and made me refreshed. I guess immersed mind is a happy mind.

I went for a walk in a graveyard, and watching the snowflakes descending slowly on the tombstones I was reminded of fragility of life and felt immensely grateful for every moment that I am still alive.
It is so easy to forget how precious it is to be alive.

I feel grateful that I have signed up for the gratitude journal challenge at the same time as Giedre. Every day when I check in I find lovely, beautiful inspiring landscape pictures from this poster that I do not know. Thank you Giedre for your lovely pictures from nature. I wish I could join you on your many beautiful walks in person but instead I have the opportunity to be there in my mind.

I went for a walk and felt in awe with the quiet slow snow making the forest appear so calm and peaceful. The time seems to have disappeared and instead of feeling lonely in the big forest with just a few bird sounds I felt connected to the whole world, with everyone experiencing this very moment in their own way.

Today we went down memory lane when we were on facetime with our daughter. One happy memory spurred my daughter to find a stack of old photographs from her childhood and even a few of my husband and I before we got her. It was a lot of fun and a wonderful opportunity to be able to catch up and share this together despite of the distance.

As it is really touch not being able to meet and hug because of the pandemic, I made and sent small cute love notes.
One of my friends received the letter yesterday, and thanked me with such warm message. It made me want to use my creativity for sending some love again and again!

I spent time working in my shop and then came in for a warm meal.
It reminded me about how fortunate I am to be able to make things at a high level. The warm meal was nice because the shop was chilly.

Once in a while I hit bottom and starts ruminating. This was such a day where I spend a lot of time blaming myself for all kind of things and thinking back to failures and regrets I have had. This is leading to nowhere and is basically a wasted day! I am grateful that I have acquired different techniques that can help me to overcome those obstacles and recover faster than I used to. With continuous practice my relapses will be shorter and that in itself is a wonderful thought and worth the effort.

I saw a beautiful sunrise this morning - the sun came from a mist and it felt like a reminder that the sun rises every morning for everyone bringing light, warmth and enabling life. And even when it is behind the clouds it is still there for all of us.
Life always offers you a second chance. It's called tomorrow.
