Well, mostly because I'm only 5 feet tall ... but honestly, I mostly just look up! It's such a waste of energy to only look straight ahead, or to the right. I like the whole 360 degree watch. But I notice when I walk in the mornings, I spend a ton of my walk looking up. This morning while I was walking & looking up, a beautiful red tail hawk glided right over me, at only 10 or so feet above my head!! It was GORGEOUS. So glad I was looking up there!
It was also confirmation that it's our spring. Birds are singing, flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and the air is screaming "Happy Spring"! So lovely. Although talking to my neighbors in the NC mountains often brings news of a new expected snow storm "later this week" or in Atlanta with my kids, "it's raining again" ... I am the most grateful of all when I wake up and I am warm. I can't believe how much that really had to do with my health, and outlook. So yes, I'm looking up ... face to the sun but mostly, face to the heavens. With gratitude and love to the Universe and beyond.
So. Very. Thankful.
Paul & Nina are on a trip to the west coast.
And here are my company keepers while they're away!
I'm so tickled that Paul gets to see some more of our country (and this time, not on a scooter going 37 mph across the vast Texas land ...) They are visiting the Grand Canyon today. I simply cannot wait to see their photos and hear the energy in their voices when they've landed for the night.
As always, there are changes happening, lots of love and happiness bouncing around. Jenn has announced that she is with child! The newbie will arrive in August. We're over the moon, even Christian who has lived his first 12 years as an only child is excited. Miracles continue to happen in our immediate realm.
I won't go ALL grandmother on you with all the details of everyone, but will give you just a glimpse; and a bit bigger view of this little princess just being her precious and beautiful self!
I'm teaching tons of dance classes (17 classes per week plus rehearsals), doing some competition choreography and such, making some costumes and all of that.
Also, doing my art classes for Life Book 2016, catching up on journaling when I can and just trying to squeeze every minute out of every day.
Sometimes I get to play with my friends
sometimes we try on hats :-)
(the Olives, FL chapter) and Olives from NC with their lovely side dishes! We even go camping sometimes and for 2 years running, it's been cold weather camping in FL! And SO MUCH FUN!
and once in a while, Paul & I get to go on a date and be our silly selves. But we don't have to be on a date for that, really! We were dissolved into giggling fits trying to take these selfies that night. Easily amused, I tell you!
I miss blogging, but don't get as much time for it as I used to. I post smaller snippets of our shenanigans and such on Instagram and Facebook, both under Cheri Glover. Feel free to follow over there! Although I have a twitter account, I'm not good at remembering it! :-(
Hoping to attend the blog more regularly now. 2016 is for Balance. We'll see.
If I had to change anything at all, it would be to spend more time with family and loved ones. But for now, I'm enjoying what I've been blessed with. My heart is full and my soul is peaceful. And my health, as well as the health of loved ones is great. What more could I possibly ask for?
Blessings to All,
