Today I Am grateful for having the most wonderful, fun-filled Father’s Day I ever had with my boys…
For starters, I Am grateful for that we were all perfectly fine with our plans of going to breakfast at IHOP being thwarted as none of us wanted to wait 20 minutes for a table and opting to simply hit McDonald’s instead so we could get on with our day sooner.
I Am grateful as well for not being able to find parking at the Staten Island Ferry lot… and finding free on-the-street parking close by instead.
I Am grateful further for my first-ever excursion to Governors Island, learning about the island’s history, spending time lounging and napping in a hammock, climbing “The Hill,” watching the boys enjoy themselves in a playground and riding around in a pedal surrey. Freaking blast of a lifetime.
I Am also grateful for having dinner at our all-time favorite restaurant, Lun-Wah in Roselle.
I Am grateful as well for discovering that my credit card limit was unexpectedly tripled, which will make handling some expenses easier – and for having the good sense to know not to go to crazy with it.
I Am grateful further for my sister Lorelei, who celebrates her birthday today. She came into my life as an acquaintance, and through the twists of fate became family. And while our family continued to make unexpected twists and turns, the bonds we share have only grown stronger with time. I love you, sis!
Finally I Am grateful for my own dad, who always took time out of his busy schedule to make sure I had the best childhood I could, always involved with my participation in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, teaching me about the world, science and nature, helping me with my algebra homework, providing us with fun opportunities of our own that we will always cherish… not to mention his brilliant sense of humor, his advice on how to handle the more difficult aspects of life, and always supporting our pursuit of happiness. This just scratches the surface of all this man did for me and my siblings. I love you, Dad!!!
I Am grateful for NOW, the only moment there is, metaphysically speaking, knowing everything I could possibly want is in existence NOW and is in my grasp NOW. In respect to this physical plane in which we use “clock time” to measure the Eternal Now, I Am looking forward to an amazing tomorrow, filled with love and joy, prosperity and abundance, creation and completion, new possibilities and new realities. I anticipate ending the day in complete satisfaction, knowing that only good comes to me, always. It is going to be the best day of my life, and I Am grateful for tomorrow today!
And So It Is.
