The Thirtieth Day: Pictorial Gratitude List #3, WOW!!!

This should be sub-titled: It Takes A Great Big Village!


In descending order, with particular emphasis on the end:

1.   As my mind has quieted, the gratitude has gotten so much easier to sense deeply,    manifest gently and express lovingly.


2.  The crazy, lyrical eclectic music of Starbucks Wayzata, who also have the best internet connection in the area. It really is the little things.

3.   The food! I have eaten Vietnamese, Cambodian, Indian, Barbecue, Mexican, Ethiopian and Thai. All of it as I was surrounded lovingly by some of the most beautiful generous people, all of whom had a story to tell and so graciously inquired about mine. Honestly and truly, I will cherish the memories of these meals and the care in which they were served to me forever. Here is Bevie’s and my Thai lunch from Bangkok Kitchen. The plates were $4.99 each:


4.   There is a lot of history in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Here is one of the houses on Summit Ave, birthplace of F. Scott Fitzgerald, each Victorian house so unique, special and full of mystery!


5.  Minnehaha Falls, 10,000 years old, created by glaciers and gave me an even greater appreciation for the Land of 10,000 Lakes.


6.   Sasha, she calls me every day!


7.    Seb, the oldest by 10 minutes. Loves me even though I don’t call enough.


8.   Lilo, I know your shocked Sasha.


9.   G, the Beautiful Baby!


10.  Dylan 2014 Rutgers University Grad, finished on Wednesday 8/14. On the Dean’s List every semester. Way to go Dyl, I never, ever doubted. (Colie, please call me and send a photo of you).


I am upheld by all of it, people, places, encounters, engagements, celebrations, challenges, past, present and future, all swirling around me and coalescing into this one finite moment that I am so, so grateful to be able to experience.

Onward with my life….

Big Loving Namaste!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
