These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

Gratitude

I spent a very simple weekend just taking care of personal tasks. Laundry, online bill pay, ordering medications for the dog, watching movies, and reading. This evening I stopped at a local Denny's for some of my favorite comfort food: the veggie cheese omelet with hash browns and an English muffin.

I drank hot tea with honey and lemon and read the Sunday news while waiting for my food. It's one of those little things that I used to do for myself on a regular basis. But I have been so wrapped up in my financial woes that I have not been allowing myself these simple pleasures.

I realized, during my short drive home, that I have much to be thankful for. I have a good job. I have a home. I have nice clothes. I have a car that runs. There is at least one creature in the Universe who believes that the sun rises and sets on me.

I have eyes to see, ears to hear, and the ability to love. I have met many people along the way who have been kind and loving enough to help me grow as I traveled my path.

What good would all the riches in the world do me if I did not take a moment to enjoy them. And to thank the Universe for bestowing such bounty upon me.

What a lovely post, Nursepam! It's good to be reminded to stop and say thank you to the Universe sometimes. And you have to let yourself indulge once in a while. It's good for the soul.

I can agree with Ting, Pam. You have helped me to grow, and to help me look at the beauty in all things and people. You have also taught me to be compassionate.

Hugs!

I am glad that you treated yourself! A quote I once saw on the back of a car read, "Lord, let me be the person my dog thinks I am." Nurse- I think you are that person your dog thinks you are. Great, compassionate, honoring, and much more. Hugs!

And that kind of outlook, my friend, is what makes you so special ~

You ladies are so sweet. I could eat you all up with a spoon like a chocolate sundae.
