Gratitude Monday: Abundance

Today I’m taking Amtrak to visit Mom.  Of course the first two things on my list are Mom and Amtrak.  There so many reasons I’m thankful for Mom. She a good person and a good role model, and she’s really, really strong.  Plus, she shared some of her genes with me, so I’m on my way to being good and strong, too!

I have the senior discount for Amtrak (Yay! for persistence and health!) The tickets are really reasonable.  I love Amtrak because it’s comfortable, and it has WiFi.  I can read or write or nap or look out the window or visit with a neighbor.  Today I will write Flash Fiction and enter a contest.

Comfort zone busting.  Yes, that was me on FB live.  Holy Guacamole, that was super-tough, and I feel silly.  But, hey, I did it. And I’m entering a contest.  Another comfort zone busing experience.  If you didn’t see me on FaceBook, here’s a photo.  I’m much more comfortable with stills.

Loved One and I have enough produce from our garden to share and to preserve.

I have a whole lot of other things on my gratitude list this week: health, friends, beautiful weather, people who love me. But I have a train to catch.

Is it enough to say that I feel really blessed to have so many people who love me and support me.  My life is truly abundant.

What’s on your gratitude list this week? Please leave a comment.  What you share almost always makes me count another blessing.
