More blessings

I am grateful for the library because that is where I am now.. no computer for now and that may be a blessing in disguise. I found a "computer guy" in town.. he came this morning to pick up the computer and get rid of a virus and clean her up...
A big change in attitude today even with a packed laundromat.
It was an opportunity to be pleasant amongst the chaos.
Picked up a new color for the bedroom too.
A good day

Open Arms

I find it amazing how some days one wakes and just feels great and other times.. not so much.
I feel good today, and I am sure it is because I am aware of life's blessings. This is where my focus is.. the good stuff, all those wonderful things that are going right in my life.
The students I work with, watching them produce some amazing, creative work - a big blessing. I love it when I am giving a student the opportunity to express themselves in some way and it "clicks".
I am feeling good that I was able to help someone special financially and in return it came back to me four-fold!
Today is a day I want to open my arms and take it all in. I want to embrace each moment and because this is what I WANT and focusing on that, that is what the Universe provides more of.
Placing your focus on the good stuff and more good stuff is what appears.

Today I appreciate assistance

Gratitude Exercise here

Today a very nice man helped my mom with the wheelchair, went to the car with us to help some more and brought the chair back to the office... So many very kind people :-)
Thank you to all of you out there that hold doors open, are patient with others that are disabled, and do it all with a big smile.

being grateful

If you read the comment underneath this post, you'll know where the inspiration for this came from. Laura inspired this idea for me to post my gratitude for the many things I am blessed with. "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was thank you, that would suffice" is one of my favorite quotes from Meister Eckhart.
Yesterday, while at class, a previous student came by with her mom and dropped off a HUGE bin filled with art supplies. Paints, paints, paints... feathers, wood, beads, chenille, gems, foamie stuff... and empty oranizers! Thank you .. Thank you.
I will not have to buy paints for awhile and those sculpey molds are just the things I was looking for. I am soooo very grateful!
Life is good :-)
