Happy Friday! It is cooler than it has been so far this season and I am grateful to be alive and living it! I’m grateful for two good furnaces and a wonderful set of gas logs that all work as they should and help us to stay warm and cozy when the temperatures dip into frostiness. I’m grateful for the people that help us to maintain our cozy home and keep it safe and comfortable, for great neighbors and a dedicated neighborhood patrolman who supports our community. I’m grateful for connections and networks and support and all the ways that life is improved by those networks and connections. I’m grateful for ideas and inspiration and a healthy body, for life with my dear spouse, for my family and our strong bond and support of each other. I’m grateful to celebrate the birthday of someone who taught me so uch about unconditional love simply by being born. And I’m grateful for the power of prayer. Today, I will consciously choose thoughts of Love and connection, support and Wholeness. Peace and blessings.
