Gratitude: An Open Journal Entry

Today, I just feel like a really fortunate person.

I have a supportive husband who allows me to be who I am….intensities and all.

Gracious words also need to be extended to my three boys, who – while all different, are a verification of where they came from in every pattern of speech, sense of humor, depth of intelligence, and dislike of establishment. I only want happiness for each of them and whatever brings them to that place.

Friends. I’ve never had a lot. But, the ones I have are keepers. Loyal. Trustworthy. Intelligent. Kind. These are only a few of the words I would use to describe them. I describe myself as lucky – I am lucky to have them in my life.

I have a new job. As with any new job, there is a learning curve but things are good, and keep getting better. I am accepted. I am learning (important to me). I am starting to be a contributing member of a TEAM! This is a position I was meant to have and for that very reason want to make the best of it that I can. This sentiment is not only for me and my benefit but truly something I felt called to do to make our world a more sustainable and better place for our children.

Children. Oh, how I love children! And, I am grateful for them. Today, I had my second to last garden club meeting at the school where I am the garden club advisor. Although, in the first few minutes of contact I had to reprimand them, I still enjoyed our relaxed lesson on prairies.  When their eyes light up in answering a question or making a connection, I am not sure there is anything better in the world!  They are little seeds absorbing knowledge like water until their seed coats are shed and they grow into environmentally literate citizens.  I love what I do.

I am grateful.  Grateful for a chance to make a difference in the world. Life is good.

Spring is here. It is a time for growth.
