My sister is an excellent cook and she made the most wonderful key-lime pie that I was able to enjoy tonight.
I love key-lime pie but I'm not very good at making it. Store-bought just doesn't taste the same as homemade.
Key-lime pie with whipped cream, lime slices, and graham cracker crust.

Today I used clean water, multiple times, from several different taps in my home. If I needed it to be cold, it was cold. If I needed it to be hot, it was hot. I didn't have to walk anywhere to find water and carry it back to my house, or boil/sanitize it before I could use it.
Fresh, clean water not only keeps me healthy when I remember to drink the recommended daily intake, but it also allows me to enjoy things like cooking, cleaning, bathing, washing my face and brushing my teeth. Water on demand in several different rooms of my home is a convenience that is not yet available to everyone. I am grateful for this opportunity I often take for granted, especially during this drought season.

Took a drive to the flower nursery nearby. The sun was shining. The weather was warm. I was streaming Latin jazz on my radio. For a moment, everything felt happy and relaxed.
I've been dealing with a lot of heaviness lately. This helped me let go of my worries and take in the moment.

I was simply overcome by gratitude for the life I get to live.
Being able to acknowledge this privilege let’s me let go of smaller stuff.

Today I enjoyed the opportunity to sleep in. I was able to go to bed last night without setting an alarm and wake up without the anxiety of feeling like I may have overslept, missed a meeting, or forgotten what time my shift started today.
Being able to enjoy a couple of days off each week allows my body and mind to relax, rejuvenate, and repair itself from the stress of the workweek. Sleeping in for an extra hour (or two) when my body needs it allow me to feel rested, restored, re-energized, and ready to take life head-on. I am grateful that I am able to enjoy time away from work and other responsibilities periodically and that I listen to what my body tells me it needs.

Today I felt extremely grateful that the great state of Texas is keeping these "acid-squirting land lobsters from hell" in their state and not letting them migrate to mine. I mean, what in the fresh nightmare are Vinegaroons? Sounds like something my grandma or a mob boss might yell at someone. "You better watch it you scallywag, you big vinegaroon!"

Technically these devil creatures are classified as arachnids, which, just...nope. I am extremely terrified of arachnids. So I was not overjoyed to read that another one had been added to the family. But knowing they live several states away means I might be able to sleep tonight. So thank you, Texas.

Stopped for him to cross the street. He was in a wheelchair.
He just gave me the biggest smile. And he looked surprised I stopped. He seemed grateful.

They check in on me and voice their concerns.

Work has been a bit overwhelming the past couple of months. But when I take a step back and look at the incredible teams I've had a chance to work with and meaningful projects, it puts the hard work in perspective. It's still a lot on my plate, but I feel very very grateful to have these opportunities.

Bought me a new refrigerator that was 'perfect' when the old one died this week.
I got the top of the line frig with freezer on the bottom. No more bending over to find things on the bottom shelf of the frig for either of us. We are not as physically mobile now as we age.

Today I am grateful for air conditioning. In the midst of one of the hottest summers I can remember in Utah, I feel like I go to bed and wake up cranky because of the heat, and I don't want to go outside if I can avoid it. That makes for a pretty miserable few months waiting for the temperature to lower. But today as I sat here thinking about what I am most grateful for right at this moment, I stopped everything and let myself be really present in the moment and that's when I heard the hum of the air conditioner in my home office.
I realized that as hot and miserable as I might think I am, there are others in this world who may not enjoy the simple pleasure of indoor air conditioning. I am grateful for this luxury that I know I am fortunate to enjoy.

The RNs are starting to organize and come together to fight for patient care issues and staffing at KP SRO.
It will benefit our community and world as a whole to demand the quality care in our health systems that all deserve.
