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.

My beautiful mom and daughters are so thoughtful and supportive during a difficult time in my life.
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.
Window mount air conditioner.

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.

Walking among my garden and seeing the fruit and vegetables growing. Being connected to nature gives me a sense of calm and awe.
It ended my day in a calm place.

I talked with a number of individuals and teams during my morning calls that lifted my spirits today.
I got inspired by things they were sharing and starting feeling a greater vision for myself.

The nurses that I work with on a daily basis who come to work happy, post funny messages or gifs in our online chat, these nurses make remote-work still feel like working "together."
I feel happier when I get to see their personalities come through in these daily messages and it makes my job a lot more fun and a lot less isolating. I'm grateful to work with such an uplifting group of ladies (and a couple of guys!) who bring laughter into my work-life every day.

These long time friends planned a lovely visit to Avila beach. We shared laughter, memories and wine.
Lightened my spirit and allowed me time to reminisce.
Fun in the garden wine tasting.
