I am grateful today for some unexpected occurrences. As I like things to follow a specific plan so when the unexpected happens I am learning to try and go with the flow.
I am so grateful I was able to take a long hot bath upstairs in the newly fixed tub. My master bathroom has a tiny tub so the luxury of the large bathtub was a welcome treat. My spouse awoke and heard the upstairs tub running and came to see if I was alright. Usually my indulgence to go upstairs means my body is in a flair and I need to stretch out. I assured him I was OK and luxuriated in my solace.
I made a morning run to the grocery store to get some necessities. Then it was off to pick up a couple of items at Costco. Going to Costco this time of year is like taming a lion wearing a meat suit. It feels like putting your life at risk.
I am grateful for an unplanned trip to Bed Bath and Beyond. I was looking for some hand warmers for a lab at school. They had none so we perused the perimeter of the store. We found a strange item I felt I wanted. I bought a blue Hanukkah stocking. I have never seen one before and I felt like it was such a kitsch item that I had to have it.
I have been hoping to let my hair grow out but I just can’t tolerate it anymore. I made an appointment for today and I actually followed through with it. I am grateful that the stylist did a nice job and I feel better.
I responded to some friends’ posts today and it felt good to catch up. After dinner I had my wonderful call with Kim. After I finished the call I felt invigorated and drained at the same time. I am grateful for this amazing gift she has bestowed on me.
I finished my night with speaking to two dear friends. While as usual the video chat didn’t last for long, I am grateful I was able to speak with them at length. I am ever so grateful that I met so many wonderful women from the writing group and it has expanded my heart in welcoming them in to my life.
