Virginia Foothills Park this afternoon to hit tennis balls and enjoy a short walk.

I’ve been incredibly grumpy today which has involved much unfiltered commentary and language. I’m incredibly blessed I can share with Thomas and Lillian that, frankly, there was much anger within me today. And, I can further apologize for my colorful language, letting them know I’m doing the best I can at processing it.

And … they give me the space and understanding I need. Blessed we three chose one another. xoxo ..

My “word of the day” on Friday was an F-word that wasn’t Friday!! There was much anger and bitterness within me. I knew why it was there, and also knew it was a conditioned response. 

So I did my best to let myself stay with it and not push it away. The discomfort was there most of the day, yet by end of day had released some and yesterday morning had released fully. It was an amazing and magical day!!

Hot Sauce Spices Up Life

**THROWBACK POST**

October 19 2015:

And then there was this tree. We made gratitude lists tonight and discussed them. Thomas listed “hot sauce”. I said, “Tell us about the hot sauce Thomas.” He says, “It spices up life.” I think Thomas and Lillian both need a shirt with “Hot Sauce” on it. They sure spice up my life. Here’s to Hot Sauce!

Oh!! And his duck friends came back to hang with him. They even got out of the water to come closer. So funny as we don’t feed them.

The Art Show Trees Produce and Spreading Loving Kindness and Deeply True to His Heart

October 9 2017:

Wonderful solo afternoon walk. These trees. Just love the art show they produce.

I had such a feel good time in the grocery store this morning spreading loving kindness.

Ran into a friend and shared hugs and yummy conversation, got some items off the top shelf for another shopper, and while in line suggested a book to another customer and the cashier.

Plus, came home with good food. Having good food in the fridge and pantry just feels good. Incredibly grateful for natures beauty, the food nature provides, and days like these.
