I did a children's reading contest where the kids read and made a poster to go with the book. We did an ice cream party to celebrate their success and they all won cash prizes. I had to attend via Zoom, but it was still great.
We both have hearts to make the lives of the children in our community better. It is nice to be appreciated by someone who knows the importance of reaching out and making our youth into readers. Programming is hard to do in this time of Covid 19 and it is great when it is successful.

She has great acceptance and confidence in me and it makes all the difference in the world when I am stuck in my self-critical thinking.
She helps me step outside of my stinking thinking.

The much needed rain even though is is just a little bit.
It makes my plants happy as well as myself. Rain (all kinds of water - drinking, bath, shower, rain, waterfall, river) is therapeutic.

Estoy agradecido por todos aquellos fallos y baches que se han presentado y se presentan en mi vida... aun que han dolido mucho...
De todos y cada uno de ellos debo aprender algo, ser mejor día a día con el aprendizaje que de ellos obtengo. Debo seguir adelante con ellos...

I got a haircut! So random and simple, something I did for myself.
I loved my long hair but somehow it felt like I would hide behind it. Now with my short hair it's like I'm ready to be seen.

I was driving home and the view was very nice
It reminded me that beauty is everywhere and we just need to stop and enjoy it

I am comfortably settled into the new house. I honestly would have never thought I'd ever get to this point.
I had a lot of help along the way and I am part of a strong unit so we were able to make it happen together.

I decided to purchase a book on a whim after someone on TikTok said really good things about it.
The book ended up being really good and has helped reignite my love for reading.

Today is an ordinary day, and I am really grateful for that. Some days I get a lockdown fatigue from not enough stimulation, from missing hugs and travels. Bu today I felt grateful to wake up to a familiar world: roof over my head, beautiful garden view, bird songs outside. I am alive, healthy and loved.
It has taken awhile, but I certainly do know it now - the most wonderful gift I had, the gift I finally learned to cherish above all else, was the gift of all those perfectly ordinary days. - Katrina Kenison

I spoke to my dear friend this morning, and felt so grateful for the technology that allows to keep in touch with those we cannot meet as frequently as we would like. It was such an uplifting experience to hear her voice and to feel loved exactly as I am.
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued. When they can give and receive without judgment. And when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship. Connection is why we're here. We are hardwired to connect with others, it's what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it there is suffering.” ~ Brené Brown

Just saw a blue jay fly into a tree and felt an extreme sense of comfort and attraction to nature.
I felt real in a way I've never felt before.

My husband bought me some roses for no particular occasion. I love flowers, I love surprises and I love feeling spoilt. I feel special every time I look at them.
A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.- Zen Shin

So grateful for the annual influx of beautiful birds.
They're like old friends returning each year, some stopping to spend the summer, others only passing through to other destinations. Their reliability is comforting
