Daily gratitude 5/10/18

Today I am so grateful for:

* a peaceful evening last night, reading, cuddled with dogs

* that whenever I see one of the exes, especially the most recent one, that I burst into laughter and count my blessings, rather than a negative/depressed/judgmental response

* the kids that are mowing my lawn this summer

* nicer weather

* I am living my karma - and will continue to make it and do so

* the courage to make decisions and listen to my Higher Power while making them
