Family dinners have returned and while the dinners may not be gourmet, the connection time is priceless.
My daughter has wanted a garden for many years and we finally have one.
Having a job this period is so important. First of all it keeps me busy and active for half a day. Then the nature of my job allows me to be helpful for other people who are going through intense feelings at the moment. Finally, a job offers me security both financially and socially.I'm grateful for my job.
I'm grateful for my partner. He is there to offer me a hug at night, a laugh during the day, a discussion on what is important and intense feelings when values are being compromised. He makes me breakfast in the morning after I have served coffee. At nights he makes the best salads in the world. He is smart, funny and helpful in times of need.
I'm grateful for covid19. It sounds strange but it kinda forced me to use my anxiety in a new and productive way. I was always avoiding therapy through telephone. Now I feel I have overcome this barrier of anxiety as I work from home and I'm on the phone with clients for the most part of my workday. It also gave me the opportunity to spend more time with my partner who is also working from home. In 6 months I have seen him more times than I have seen him in eight years. Lastly, I allowed myself to utilise time otherwise spent outside, by doing creative work on setting up my business, upskilling, daily physical exercise.
My weekly check-in calls with my brother and his family and my sister; and all are well and safe

Working from home means I spend more time with my pets: one dog, one cat and one chicken. All elderly, but doing well.
Back to spending more time riding horses.
My chickens and the worms in my compost that I use to feed them, don’t know about the pandemic. They hang out and chill with me if I’m stressed or not, and talk to each other in the soothing clucking language that is both weird and wonderful.
When I look into my Husband’s eyes, I picture him all wrapped up like a magnificent gift... because, truly, that’s what he is to me and anyone who knows him. Every day I thank him for being the rock to my roll, and the sugar to my spice.
Three good things is a really good thing, and the people who dreamt it, wrote down notes on a piece of paper about it, created voodoo internet computer language that birthed it into being are also helping me remember to remember that good things stick like the sweetest honey to my soul.

I found her.
Elderly parents are a blessing. It’s there time to reap the rewards of all their sacrifice, to receive thank you’s and amends from their children, and to get and give unconditional loved be from their grand children.
America and it’s people are a special breed. Never in the history of mankind has there ever been a more freedom loving, industrious, pragmatic and principled all inclusive tribe.
Friends are 1) the universes way of saying - “good job” , 2) a reflection of our true essence, and 3) a reminder that principals and love are the real currency of life.
