Ten Things of Thankful – March 19 2021

Happy Friday and TTOT day! Let’s hop to it!

  1. The cardinal picture is reminiscent of my nephews Keith and Michael. Keith’s Heavenly Birthday was February 28 and Michael’s is today. Happy Birthday in Heaven to my nephews. They were both Saint Louis Cardinals fans. So, the cardinal has a double meaning, that of the reminder that when we see a cardinal it represents those we have lost and the other meaning is their fandom. I am grateful for the belief in the possibilities of visitors from the other side of the veil.
  2. The anthology “Heart Beats” is in the final proofing stage and I am just stalking my mailbox for the proof copy. I am grateful to have been involved in this project.
  3. Garden of Neuro has been an affirming experience for me. I recently posted the interview with Nanci Arvizu.
  4. Writing buddies. My good friend, sister from another mister, Chanah and I are back to doing virtual writing. We started this a good while ago on a live meeting basis, then we switched to virtual before virtual was cool and so when could have Sonia involved from long distance, and then we were meeting in person at home and incorporating lunch, and now we got back to virtual. I love doing this. It requires the discipline of focusing on your writing and not getting sidetracked by other things and we can bounce ideas off each other.
  5. Daughter and I started the Sketchbook Revival yesterday. It is a lot of fun. It is free and we created some fun pictures. The important thing is not to worry about perfection and just have fun. I am grateful for this option. And that my daughter is my buddy for these projects.
  6. Sunday is World Poetry Day and I am grateful that Green Cat Books, of which I have interviewed some of their poets, is going to be doing a poetry reading. Green Cat Books is from the UK, hence World Poetry Day. Want to be in the audience? Go HERE to sign up.
  7. Enthusiasm. I love it when people are enthusiastic. It raises my energies to be around others with positive points of view. I hope I am that person and am grateful for the energies of enthusiasm.
  8. The power of prayer. I have an unspoken prayer request for a dear friend and I know that putting this here will generate more prayers.
  9. Collaboration with my niece. I am having so much fun collaborating with my niece who is also my cover artist.
  10. YOU! What is in your gratitude bank? Bernie the Beaver wants to know.

  1. Praying for your friend on 8. God is gentle, He sees in His children opportunity to grow, to let go of unforgiveness and be whole. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
    And what a cute visual you picked for this TTOT ๐Ÿ˜ธ๐Ÿ˜

  2. Lovely list. I’ve made note of the interview you mentioned in #3. (I will go back and listen to the rest of it later.) You are a great interviewer. I will pray for your friend. The photo of the beaver is so cute. Did you know that the beaver is Oregon’s state animal?


  3. Prayers for sure. Hey Bernie! Im grateful to be at this hop today and to find out its world poetry day.

    I will go forth as I pray
    And include with dismay
    That my mind is not clouded
    With limiericks all day!


  4. What an excellent TToT as an expression of the capacity we all have to create and to cooperate with others… too much of the world at large is obsessed with action-reaction.
    Very Spring-like list, if that makes any sense.
    Have a good week ahead.


  5. I’ve heard that about cardinals before. My mom loved cardinals, and I think about her every time I see one.
