A Made by Grandma Afghan

Grandma's Afghan

Today I Appreciate….

  • A, Made by Grandma, Afghan – I received a call from my niece yesterday evening… “Ellie I need a favor. I left the afghan that Grandma made me at the house in Windham. Will you go get it?” “That is the only thing I really have from her…”

The Grandma she is referring to is my mother who made her transition 4 yrs ago. My mother was very close with all her grandchildren. My nieces and their families were on a skiing vacation up in Windham Mt for a few days. They left on Sunday to go back to Long Island….

“Sure I’ll go get it – but I can’t get there till Wednesday. Don’t worry – we’ll get it – just call the people and tell them I will be there Wednesday.” Windham is about 45 minutes from my house and I don’t have an extra 1 1/2 hr till Wednesday.

Now this is not an expensive item… But it is totally irreplaceable to my niece – her Grandma made it, with love, just for her with a tag that even says that. I absolutely will go get that very special afghan and mail it back to it’s owner! 😉

Hmmm The day before I was appreciating forgetting things – wonder what opportunities await me?!

I appreciate getting a ride into work today. It is my first day back and I felt that being dropped off would be best. It felt good to have that opportunity!

I appreciate that I have a very managable level of mail and phone messages at work that will take a short time to reply to, file away or return the call.

I appreciate that there is apparently an unpleasant smell wafting through the building that I can’t smell. That is a good thing!

I appreciate that today is the most alert I have felt in some time. I feel myself slowly emerging from a cocoon.

I appreciate the day today — a day to myself when I can make some order with things that I haven’t been able to get to.

I appreciate the beautiful half moon that shed such a wonderful glow to the earth last night.

I appreciate the deer who continue to come to eat our grass – a couple nights ago, 5 of them ran off in a little herd when I drove in the driveway.

I appreciate my boss who “heard” that we need more staff on weekends and is making arrangements to add more people as soon as possible.

I appreciate the opportunities that keep coming up in my real estate pursuits and otherwise.

Most of all, I appreciate RECOGNIZING the wonderful creations I allow into my life. Sometimes it blows my mind to realize, “I did that!”

Yes - I Appreciate that too! Thumb up 0
