Gratitude Monday: Meditations of a Rainy Day

The weather continues to delight me.  Okay, rain keeps coming; but [tweetthis]Along with rain comes warm weather, cool breezes, no need to water, and a delightfully subdued atmosphere perfect for meditation. [/tweetthis]Here’s my Monday list, in no particular order, and starting with something weather related:

😛  Open windows through which I hear raindrops silencing everything, followed by a cheerful coming to life: Cardinals singing, Blue Jays keeping the peace, the buzzing bees, the distant drone of an airplane, gentle breezes rustling cherry leaves, and the frogs croaking.

😛  A gardening partner who mows while I edge, who trips while I weed, who gathers while I sweep.  Thank you Loved-One.

😛 Amazon Prime who hold my wishes and reminds me to re-order and seems to have an abundance beyond my needs.

😛  Picnics in the park with friends and strangers.

😛  Photo-sharing that gives me glimpses of what friend and family are doing and fill me with longing.

😛    “Complete Streets” projects that are finally bringing back sidewalks, and bicycle lanes that are a safe alternative to driving.

😛   Twitter friends.  You know who you are and why I love you.

😛   Waking up to giggles.  I love the crazy turns my dreams tumble around reality, perhaps revealing more about my sub-conscience than I care to interpret.  It’s enough to be entertained.

😛  A friend who surprised my with a birthday present either late or early, I’m not sure which.  I just checked a “first” off my list.  Thank you Pat.

😛  Kind rejection letters. Thank you agents who are kind enough to recognize the person behind the query.  I am getting closer to finding the right fit.  Yes, I am.  I can feel it.gratitude picnic - 2
