Today had gifts...as do most days. Today, I was able to see them.
Today had the gift of friendship, the gift of laughter, the gift of new knowledge.
Today had the gift of accomplishment; a beautiful day. peace.
I read on my patio, I enjoyed the blue sky and lovely clouds. Just for today, I accepted life on life's terms without looking toward tomorrow, nor to yesterday.`
The gym is 4 min away from my apartment, as is the indoor pool.. Tonight I read a book and rode the bike for 50 minutes. Today, I celebrated new friendships with the old and had hope for the day.
The cafe worker told me that she taught her 9 year old son how to sew and sent him to a sewing class. He had made stuffed animals and other fun things. I offered scraps and she was excited to get them. Tomorrow I will give her a potholder, and instructions. I was delighted to pass on the gifts and the fabric...nothing like fostering sewing. It will be joyful for me to go through my 600,000 baskets of scraps to donate to a good cause.
Especially: Man sewing.
Today, I did not cry, nor did I feel sorry for myself, nor the shady, sad world we live in.
Soo nice are the folks here....People on my floor brought me welcome flowers, and cupcakes and welcome cards.. Just talked to my girl. She is leaving Wednesday night on the red eye to come see her Ma.....Wahoo...very excited.
