Daily Reminder # 636



Just gratitude tonight, I think. Weather remains too chilly for my taste. But the sky was blue and the forsythia is in bloom so it could be worse. I didn't do my wordzzle story. Putting it off until tomorrow. Sunday company may come - some people I don't know well and some people I don't know at all. I'm feeling extremely anxious about it. Hopeful that maybe some new interesting people will come into my life... but afraid they won't like me and all that stuff and ashamed of how I look and how I don't really function very well. Ashamed of "needing" people to be kind to me. Such is life. I am letting them in. I guess that's progress. Once I have finished my gratitude and posted this, I'm going to watch THE HELP which I hope is as good as I'm expecting it to be. 




Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude, an effort to embrace, invoke, seduce, attract, befriend, accept abundance, to connect with and have faith in the generous and loving nature of the Universe and its desire to make every being on earth feel happy and fulfilled.)
