In A State Of Grace....


I wanted to write this yesterday, but I was in Limoncello Heaven, so it's a day late. Though I don't celebrate Thanksgiving out of respect for the Native Americans, I do think about what I am grateful for.

My goal for some time has been to live my life in a state of grace; completely calm, with security, peace, and beauty deeply permeating my life on the daily (which, of course, means not going near Black Friday).

I'm not completely there yet, but the drama in my life (of which used to be almost unbearable) is no more. My home exudes peace, and I can focus on things that are important to me. Music being one (I was listening to Sylvester yesterday--whatcha know 'bout dat?) and the importance of friendships being another.


this is sylvester, or one of his album covers to be exact

I am so very grateful for the amazing and awesome friends that I have, and even more grateful that my circle is increasing on a strong foundation. I even found one of my dearest long term friends I lost contact with on the internets last week, bringing my grace factor up 100%! Please check her out at her blog Sistah Goddess; she is living her whole life in grace in a major way.

And speaking of friendships and the internets, I thank the most high for your presence here. Taking the time to read my sometimes crotchety opinions, laughing with me at the ridiculousness, leaving amazing and well thought out comments--I really love you guys (and no it's not the vodka talking, that was last night!) Folks like Ms. Marvalus, sdg1844, Madame Z, and the Happy Go Lucky Bachelor seem like cousins that I like hanging out with--I just name them cause they are here every day without fail. For all of you that are here every day, or once a week, or once a month even, please know you are truly appreciated by the author of this blog.

Be blessed and prosper your azz off in the '09!

Hmmm...I guess I no longer equate Thanksgiving with pilgrims and Indians...I have not for a long while...my grandmother is a member of the Choctaw Nation...and our family still celebrates...

but I admire you for standing on your convictions.

Giving thanks and reflecting upon what we have to be thankful for is truly what Thanksgiving is about...fuk a Pilgrim. ..teach 'em how to grow food and they steal your land...

IW thanks for the shoutout. We love film, don't we? LOL. I absolutely love your blog and you have introduced me to other bloggers that I like, so thanks for having me! I wish you and everyone the best. And yo, check it, I cut all my hair off. I've gone natural, something I've been harping about doing for sometime. Rebirth, I tell you! I look forward to a great New Year as well. *raises glass to all of you*
