Treasures 2005_19

Gratitude is an act of awareness.
Without awareness, there is no recognition of anything and, therefore, no love of anything.

-- Tae Yun Kim

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, that make me feel happy or thankful or interested. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words. These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • Cinnamon bread (yummmmmmm)

  • Lox and bagels with cream cheese, fresh tomatoes, and red onion. It's not low carb but sometimes I can indulge in a treat.

  • Finding ourselves at a traffic light next to another "Black Cherry" (maroon :-) Scion XB.

  • A house with front walk flanked by stunning rosebushes, 6" blooms, in many colors.

  • Some people coming from the "Party Store" with a huge bunch of helium balloons - pink, white, and light blue- then sticking them (balloons outside, strings inside) through the rear window of their pickup truck and driving slowly off, balloons bobbling in the wind.

  • A crescent "Cheshire cat smile" of a moon

  • A beautiful big iris in front of a house down the hill

  • A man walking his two Yorkies (Yorkies are cute)

  • A good Performance Review at The Job!

  • Enough memorable moments with the cats to give them their own Treasures list this week!

  • Raven's Coming Out Day (assigned as his official celebrated birthday)

  • Rich found his wallet! (lost for 24 unhappy hours). It was in the house in a weird place.

  • A nice chat with a woman met at our favorite diner, begun by complimenting her on the handsome Samoyed waiting for her and her family in their car.
