Day 1348: Receive with Joy

Yesterday, I received with joy the news that my son’s student visa should be received with joy at our home by 10:30 this morning.  The  University of Edinburgh in Scotland now gets to receive with joy my fabulous son, who is starting a five-year mathematics program there.

Please receive with joy today’s page from this joyful book:

Please take notice that I notice more than one thing I am being given today and that I am receiving them all with joy:

  • Precious time with my only child before he leaves for school tomorrow.
  • A boyfriend who often says, “See Ann?  Everything is coming together!”
  • Work that I love.
  • Wonderful friends and family.
  • An extensive network of dedicated medical professionals.
  • A heart that has served me well for 63 years.
  • All my feelings.
  • The opportunity to share these other photos with you:

Day 1341: Good day

Good day, my good readers!

A good way to start this day and blog post is to ask this good question: What is a good day, to you?

During my good day yesterday,  somebody in a therapy group said, “A good day is one when I wake up.”

That’s as good a definition as any.

Here are some good pictures from a good day:

Does that look like a good day?  It was!

And isn’t it good that you can buy love forever in a spray bottle?

I thought it was especially good, during my good day yesterday, that the good page I chose at random from that good book of 365 days of health and happiness boosters was “Find Something Orange,” since my only child has orange hair.

Now I shall find something orange on YouTube:

That’s my good son, good people.

For me, a great day is one when I can authentically express gratitude.
