Today was a wonderful day. I am grateful I had time before school to watch a Kyle Cease video and cut out volcano patterns. I exchanged messages with a friend and that was enjoyable.
The weather was warm enough that we were able to go outside for an activity. I love sunny days and the ability to be outside without a sweater. My students were excited to be outside for the lesson and the majority of them were on task the entire time.
I received a message from another friend and I was able to contact her during my lunch period. On my SARK call last night another member, who happens to be a friend, offered to throw me a virtual party for my birthday in May. If at first I wondered if Donna really wanted to do it, there was no doubt after reading her wonderful message to me. I am grateful that I am already looking forward to a birthday that is over two months away. Go figure.
I did not take a nap when I got hoe so I would be ready for my call with Kim. There were some connection issues so we did not get to have our call. I decided to try and do my meditation hour. Last night I fell asleep about 30 minutes in and I was so disappointed. I put my phone on airplane mode. I got comfortable in a room without a TV. Then just as I was getting in to the nitty gritty of thoughts, the dog came running in barking like crazy. I was left in an agitated state and knew meditation would not work. I shall try after blogging again but I fear I am already so tired I may not make it.
I am grateful for all these moves away from winter and toward spring. I am grateful for friends that I have made in my “senior” years. I am grateful for learning the practice of meditation so different from anything I have done before. I am grateful for it being Friday. I am grateful for a virtual birthday party to look forward to. I am grateful to be able to work in my garden tomorrow. I am grateful for no school work to do this weekend. I am grateful for the 195 degree hot chocolate in my hands. I am grateful for my life.
