13 Events, Conversations, Sights etc that made me happy this week .

I have not  elaborated but experienced  a great  deal of loss of late  in the last  year .I cannot keep up with grief which just keeps pouring in  like a rain spout that will not stop dripping,6 family members, 4 pets ,and 2 great friends all in the last year.

I find myself centering thoughts on sights , sounds, words, kindnesses that  wil propell me through the days with a smile at least for awhile.

1- A little hummingbird fights the rain and wind to stop by my swinging hummingbird feeder.The glory of nature always  massages my heart.That tiny propeller winged bird shows me perseverance as I too am climbing an enormous hill to relocate.

2- My son's visit so short but fun was a welcome hiatus in an impossibly sad and brutally hot summer.

3-My autistic student asking for me .

4-The hope to reunite with my granddaughter and son on my birthday in late September.

5-Gentle soothing rains on the parched ground nurturing my flowers.

6- Friends who did favors for me while I was ill.

7- A friend who sent early birthday money because she knew I needed it for a new air conditioner and those who volunteered in this brutal heat to put it in !!
8- This picture reminding me of my goals to have my own secret gardens and fairy castles someday ..

9- My pets ever loyal but not the love of the others

10- vegetables to juice

11- Getting well from illness from a weakened immune system, really cut back

12- Words of encouragement on facebook

13- Never ever giving up my dreams
so enchanting those hedgies

I am grateful \caring though it hurts too much sometimes
