Hello all. Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. I’d invite you to join me for a morning breakfast beverage but well, you know, have to be served up virtual like. OK? Well, alright! Let’s coordinate the Mr. C’s, the Keurig warriors and lest anyone think I don’t remember that some of you are tea drinkers, let’s put on the kettle. (yes, I know you can prepare tea in a Keurig but let’s stick to tradition, eh?)
The more things change, the more they stay the same or as Jean-Baptiste originally said “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”— Got to give credit where credit is due. Hey! coolio segue! Thank you Josie for coordinating, facilitating, administering this blog hop, Ten Things of Thankful. If you guys have been over to Clark’s house already then you have the backstory, the origin of the TToT. Kindred spirits all.
I am thankful everyday and yet, I find that reminders are necessary to keep perspective fresh and current. It also has become apparent to me that reminders are needed for a slew of “things” but this morning, let’s touch on some highlights of recent days.
1 Always a thankful, the hospitality of my sister-in-law and brother. I am home with them.
2 My 1st TToT could not be without the pre-requisite safe travels on the roadways. A hearty TY for that!
3 The auditory sounds of brewing coffee. Not the burping whir of a Keurig machine but the aromatic sputtering from a good old fashioned Mr. Coffee (or other like machine!) 🙂
4 This very exact moment!!!! The sun (no, it did not go all super nova last week. yeah, yeah, I know, the sun doesn’t have enough mass to go super nova. dontcha love the internet!!!). It attempts to break free of the cumulus nimbo stradivarius whatever chains and it’s…it’s almost shining through 😀
5 The beautiful weather today. Not quite. And yet, it is. It’s the attitude, right? Sure, I wanted to wake up to a gorgeous, spring like day with blazing sun but I didn’t. But! I did wake up and that’s a good enough start to the day for me.
6. the Wakefield Doctrine. Of course! Who doesn’t enjoy removing the guesswork 🙂
7 My health. In particular my brain, that by all accounts, is functioning normally.
8 A renewed sense of self, short term purpose. Roadtrips are good for that. (Wait! does this count as 8 & 9?) Righty, right it does. The SBOR/BOSR 1.3, can’t remember chapter (ask Clark or zoe), says this is permissible. Which brings me to number…
10 Today, this day. The potential of it. The awareness that it is mine to celebrate. Whatsay, celebrate today regardless of sun or clouds or rain? See you out there people.
