365 Days of Wonderful – Day 17
I am grateful for my home. After a week of travel, it is a no-brainer to feel into how delicious it is to return home. I flew into the Seattle area, and due to the government shut down, the air traffic controllers routed our flight through a path I had not taken before, and I got an excellent geography lesson on my hometown.
I am so grateful for the air traffic controllers and TSA personnel that are at work in the airports, keeping our skies safe, and our flights moving in an efficient manner.
I am grateful to see my town from above, and see the expanses of water, lakes, winding rivers, and lovely mountain ranges in all directions. I am grateful to see all the parks, and golf courses–golf courses are a sign to behold from the sky. I am grateful to see the major bridges, and transit ways, efficiently moving traffic. Schools and ball fields, and my Alma Mater University of Washington; it looks so cool from above.
I am grateful for the folks on the airplane that let me unload before them, as I made a dash through the airport to catch the airporter. I am grateful to have caught the lovely airporter, and I am super grateful the driver delivered us safely though the evening rush hour. I am grateful for my lovely dog share family, who lovingly expressed their gratitude to me, as they felt my sweet Grace was a wonderful companion to them while I was gone. I AM SO GRATEFUL TO SNUGGLE MY SWEET DOG!
I am grateful they delivered my car and dog to me, and all I had to do was to stop by the grocery store on my way home. Can I just say that I a SO completely grateful that the grocery store roasts chickens, and that my dinner was an easy prep of salad with chicken and blood oranges. It is such a thrill to have someone cook, when you are tired!
Now I settle into the couch, under a handmade quilt, to assimilate and integrate, and decompress from my overfull brain. Grateful to be home, surrounded by my things, in my slippers and favorite sweater, with tea and my computer. My cup of gratitude runneth over.
