Forgetting Things…

Today I Appreciate….

  • Forgetting Things – Do I really appreciate forgetting things?! Well I do appreciate finding the opportunity in everything that happens…

Thursday Carol & I drove to Windham to go snow tubing with my family. After tubing we all went back to the house they were renting. We got to hang out and ate dinner with them. When Carol and I arrived back home we realized her purse was still at the house in Windham!

I don’t get to see my family that often as they live about 3 1/2 hours from us. Windham is only about 45 minutes from us. What a great opportunity I thought – I’ll drive back to Windham on Saturday to pick up Carol’s purse and I will get to play with my family again!

So I went back yesterday — had another great dinner with them (my nieces are good cooks) and got to see the kids and play scrabble… They are going back to Long Island today – so this time I made sure I remembered the purse!  😉

There are opportunities in everything that goes on… do you appreciate them?

I appreciate being able to go to the beach today

I appreciate being free to come & go as I please and do as I please; including absolutely nothing at all. It is such a beautiful thing to be “off the clock”

I appreciate the car rental agent finding me an incredibly comfy vehicle at the discounted rate of my reservation…. I so love creature comforts of all kinds

I appreciate the reading nook my BFF created in the guest room I’m staying in

I appreciate being free to go see my BFF from high school tomorrow

I appreciate being comfortable in my own skin.

I appreciate the knowledge that abundance is not always in the form of money

I appreciate that I have a wonderful life both here and in Germany.

I appreciate that I stayed in bed a little later than usual, found a great position and actually allowed myself to snuggle down into the comforter. I love to snuggle!

I appreciate forgetting so I can forgive and let go.

I appreciate getting lost then appreciate figuring out where I am – makes me feel happy.

I appreciate puppy dog kisses & cool squashy pillows.

I appreciate putting the paint cans away and knowing I did my best with the latest project.
