Ridiculously grateful for my life

Sunshine nourishes my soul, there is absolutely no question about it! The glorious heat this week, starting with the first glimpses of the sun through the blinds and stretching into the magical last remnants of light in the sky at 10:30 at night enjoyed on the deck, has been unlike anything I remember in June on Vancouver Island. Sitting in my office, lightly sweating from the exertion of tapping keys on my keyboard, now that is much more like Mexico. Big smile on my face!!

I chose the "unlimited" class option on the yoga classes for this term (hey, it was $12 more than 2 classes per week, what a bargain!) and I have been taking in 3 classes a week. Three 90 minute yoga classes in a beautiful little studio, with wonderful yoga teachers, laughing, stretching and contorting in the warmth has been well, I have nothing to compare it to - never done this before. But the way my body feels, so well used, so open and loose? This is a practice that I will continue for the rest of my life! Yoga has kept me sane this last month as I gritted my teeth through the various inconveniences and frustrations of my husband's broken foot and consequent complications. Don't get me wrong, I have tremendous appreciation that it was not occurring in MY body and no lack of sympathy for the awful state he was in. I just wasn't completely selfless in my service to his situation and needed the graceful exit to the yoga studio to regain my calm.

The "borrowed" house has been shown a few more times - one pretty serious potential buyer. She will be looking again tomorrow and I suspect an offer will be forthcoming. This will set in motion the anticipated moves and changes and I am very ready. Careful consideration and setting intention for the next locale has been done and I am making some very specific requests to the Universe for our next home. Timing to have it all done and me settled into the new routine by September would be ideal.

Meanwhile, I will continue to express my heartfelt gratitude for my life as it is. In my observance of the quirky (but completely human) workings of my mind, I have also taken on expression of thankfulness for the power of creation through saying it will be so. Jean Luc Picard had it right; "Make it so". I am here because I said this is what I wanted. I am (dare I say it?) CONTENT!

I want to make sure to give credit for the beautiful artwork at the top of my blog - the artist is Chris Chun ( and this piece, called Poppy Vase Teacup summed up the glory of today.
