I am grateful for pyjama's on a lazy Sunday morning. I am grateful when we are in our pyjama's for ages, cuddling, drinking tea, and drink even more tea. We even have a name for it and for my girls it's an absolute indulgence: today it is Pyjama-Day!

This is turning into a summer of tests. I am grateful that when my husband had a spontaneous tear in his retina & hemmoraging, he got immediate medical care & cryo eye surgery to save him from losing vision in his eye permanently. It was an awful surgery, but I held his hand & he was a trooper.

I hope you are feeling better. It's hard to be on the road when you're not feeling well.

annamaria Photinos said...

My honey and I are big "bird nerds"...several years ago we expressed the goal of providing a "peep haven". Seems all we did was have the intention and so many different birds started showing-up...perhaps they heard the invitation. I am grateful for the daily close-up interaction I get to have with our feathered friends: from the morning greetings from our resident ravens, to the daily hawk swoop, to the singing goldfinches, to the "in-your-face" hovering humming birds, even the super bold thrasher who is excavating our cobble stone walk: I love them all. Thanks again Tracy for your sharing & generous contest which prompts us to reflect on gratitude...hoping to join your online class (which begins on my birthday). Blessings

I am grateful for my bone marrow donor - a 19 year old college student that donated her cells to me 4.5 years ago. Her selfless gift has enabled me to keep on living, creating art and enjoying life with my husband and three kiddos. I am also grateful I have the opportunity to meet her for the first time ever at her wedding in August. I live in Portland OR and she is in North Carolina - opposite sides of the country! So much goodness happening! Thank you for giving away spaces in your class!
Warmly,
Dayle

Lisa Mann said...

I am so grateful for all of my neighbors, about 15 houses worth, over the last 13 years, we have become like family. We are together for the good times and the bad, in happiness and tragedy. We vacation together, share stories, hang out in each others yards and homes. I am more secure, healthier and happier having them in my life... They are a blessing

Nancy Kennedy said...

I am greatful to live in the present, and that I am aware of how beautiful and fragile it is.

Lyneen J said...

Congrats to all the winners!!!

Nicole Maki said...

Today I am grateful for my middle son. He's 17 and loves to get up early (even after staying up until 2:30 AM with his buddies) so we can play cards, just he and I.

I love the quiet one on one time with him.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Nancy Elliott said...

I'm so grateful for my loving parents who have both passed just in the last 6 months, first Mom who had alzheimers for 18 years, then 6 months later, Dad. Our family knows he wanted to go dancing with her heaven! Married happily for 67 years, after knowing each other for just 2 weeks during WWII. They were the most loving parents anyone could ask for...and how grateful I am for being able to call them 'Mom and Dad'...I miss them so.

Victoria Burgess said...

I usually do not carry cash these days and I was grateful yesterday at Starbucks that I had $5 on me to buy a homeless person some coffee because he did not have enough money and it was raining all day. Seemed like it was meant to be.

I am grateful for this beautiful day and a bit of a breeze, an early morning walk by the water, a healthy salad, the smell of fresh lemon, good books, good friends...

Lorraine Kemski said...

I am so thankful that I live in a country where I feel safe and at a time where women really count. So many times I take things as given, but in another place or in another era I might have been/be stoned to death for saying what I think or burned to death as a witch. It sounds crazy today and here in this place, but even in today's times where there is still injustice and the world is in turmoil - I am, we are, very fortunate. Not so long ago(and in some places still), women were nothing. Even doing art was just for the privileged few and that not taken seriously but just to amuse family and friends. I am feeling very blessed and I am thankful for your motivating me to take time and consider what I am grateful for. Thank you.

Skin2glow said...

I am grateful I woke up to enjoy another day! I am also grateful that I have choices and am free to make them as I see fit! ❤️ Sharing this post!

Cindy Rippe said...

I'm thankful EVERY day for my husband and family. We celebrated our 40th anniversary with a stay in a beach house (arranged by and with our adult children & grandchild) We've been asked many times what our secret is. It's finding something to laugh about every day, searching for the good moments, even in hard times, and loving unconditionally. Life has been hard sometimes but they are my soft place to fall.

Jo Murray said...

This post is perfect! We all overcommit at times but hey, that's life. Glad you are all together in an exotic place to share your experiences as a family. I am grateful for my health that enables me to travel with my beloved to interesting places.

Beverly Sparks said...

I'm very grateful to a loving family that I have never met. On July 22, 2013 a generous family donated their daughters liver to me. I hope one day they will contact me so I can learn about the young woman who gave me a second chance at life. I am thankful to God and enjoy every single day to the max. :) I actually started painting after the transplant as a way to heal and have now fallen in love with art... Have a blessed day and enjoy your travels...so awesome! xoxo

Rachelle Eason said...

So gorgeous, Tracy...Your pictures, your stories, your light! I am grateful for messages from the universe. The universe must be channeling Elizabeth Taylor because tonight it told me, "Pour yourself a glass of wine, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together."

Lori said...

I am blessed today! I woke up early and at 6 am was sitting in my garden with my tea and journal. All of a sudden our green woodpecker family joined me in the garden, feasting on ants and other goodies. They were here last year and I am so happy to see them again! I am really thankful to see my friends again!

Even though a lot of things are going wrong right now (ya know, when it rains, it pours!) I am so grateful for my husbands new job that he will start tomorrow after being unemployed for 3 years! I'm so happy and grateful that we will have tools with which to grow and take care of the things that do go wrong =)
Thanks for blogging (even sporadically) about your adventures! These last couple of years, I travel through you my dear =) <3

Jane Robertson said...

Today I am grateful for the Sacred Datura (of the eternal essence of God) plant that voluntarily came to my front yard to grow. This morning I awoke to see at least 50 flowers blooming and the bees all hungrily getting nectar deep in the blossoms. They bloom at night and are gone before noon. For those who have never seen one, the blossoms are white, tinged with purple, about 6" wide and 8" deep, and they have a wonderful, delicate fragrance. The Datura are used in Native American rituals, but they are toxic and so must be administered by shamans who know what they are doing. I just enjoy their beauty and their continuing gift of flowers and fragrance.

Marcie said...

It's easy to forget the cyber world when your caught up in the moments of real life. Aren't they the best?!? Absolutely. I am grateful for so many things today. Bees. Flowering shrubs.

Sally Snay said...

I am so happy for you that you have so many things to be grateful for. Many times we look at things way to negatively (like what you are facing...digestive issues, hectic schedule, etc) but forget the look in a more enlightened positive way as you just did. Congrats on that and your upcoming birthday!
Today I am most grateful for spending the summer with my 18 year old granddaughter...and she wanted to spend it with me!

This morning I'm grateful for...

- the winds that have cooled the house, the fabulous sunsets we've been having, the summer colours everywhere, the sky and all the amazing clouds,

- having such good friends, great conversations and so much love around me even when I can't see it,

- all the programs I've participated in that had me grow and develop,

- all the creative people in the world who are innovating and making our planet better, who are looking at ways to enhance our resources and cause a shift on the planet,

- the fact that we have technology and can connect with people all over the world at anytime!

Thanks again for creating this. I haven't been able to participate every day however, doing this has made a real difference for me and I'm adding to my daily practice (lol, almost daily ;-) )

Grace Mendez said...

I love your blog today..grateful because it's okay to have imperfections! Trying to get past some physical ailments that are causing my hands to shake...so I haven't been painting. Hoping your September class will give me the push I need to paint..EVEN WITH SHAKY hands that make imperfect markings!! :)

I'm grateful SO for my dearest friends! How lucky I am to have been blessed with two girlfriends that have been my BFFs (as the 'kids' say) for over 50 years. I met them both in grade school and we treasure each other every day. Each year, we meet in LV and share, play, lay by the pool, see great shows, good restaurants...and appreciate our 3 glorious days together!

I am on a Gypsy Journey (age 61) across the States in my Honda Civic, packed with only what is necessary for essential living. I have no permanent address anymore. Sold/gave away all the things that root a person to a particular place. I am not homeless - I am grateful to be home free - to explore, experience, discover that no matter where you roam, your heart can feel at home.

Rachelle Eason said...

My Reflection of Gratitude to follow dreams...lost and found. With unending support, encouragement, I have wings keeping me aflutter; sometimes they are not my own. Often they are from the one I love; and often from the one who gave me flight. I am grateful for their vision when sometimes mine is clouded. Why do I so easily fight it when I know what I am heading out to do? Am I fearful of making it? Am I fearful of reaching the dream and the journey ending? No...that I know is not the reason, for my dreams have no end, my spirit has no boundaries, their support has not limit.
*** excerpt from my blog tonight... www.rachelleeason.com/blog ...inspired by your FB posting about Dreama. Thank you, Tracy!

Karen said...
