Gratitude/Happiness List: June 2
I’m once again linking up with Laurel Regan’s Alphabet Salad to present my Gratitude and Happiness List for this week.
☼ Although it’s not a “happy” thing to have surgery coming up, I’ll be grateful to (hopefully) finally get rid of the wrist pain I’ve had for more than a year.
☼ After being worried about our dog Honey’s health last week (her sluggishness made us fear a possible flareup of her old Lyme disease) and making an emergency vet appointment Saturday, her energy suddenly returned, putting my mind greatly at ease.
☼ Being able to give Honey a bath outside and cut off a lot of the hair that grew over the winter—she looks like half the dog she used to be!
☼ A great and fun group of friends and acquaintances from church, especially one couple who host a great semi-annual “oldies” party at their home.
☼ A number of al fresco restaurants in our area where we can take Honey and enjoy a meal in the open air.
☼ With warm weather finally here, being able to open the French doors to the deck that we had installed last fall.
☼ Having fun plans for the coming week: a dinner with girlfriends, a lunch with friends from my old job, and an “appreciation” dinner at church for the volunteers.
☼ Plans made and plane tickets bought for our trip to Georgia over Father’s Day weekend to visit my father-in-law and sister-in-law and her family.
☼ The Red Sox, after a ten-game losing streak, now having won seven in a row, with great contributions from the Pawtucket players we’ve seen at their stadium here—and hope that they might finally recover some of the magic they had last year.
☼ The ASPCA and all the other rescue groups who care for abandoned animals and help them find new homes. God bless them all.
