Sunday Dinner

I set the table yesterday in anticipation of our family dinner today with Liz and Thadeus and their boys. I do not have dinning chairs yet, so we used a mixed match of chairs gathered from around the house. I turned some favorite music on the iPod and we all relaxed into the evening.

We had (per Jim's request) a very old traditional Sunday Dinner. Fried chicken, garlic mashed potatoes with homemade gravy, homemade biscuits, steamed vegetable medley and fresh ice tea.

Preparing for and sitting down to this wonderful dinner brought back many memories of my childhood. I can hardly recall a Sunday afternoon that my Mom did not make fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and biscuits. And during the summer fresh sliced tomatoes. Our family would all pile in the car after Sunday school and church, and head home for dinner. Many times we would stop and pick up the Sunday Paper, and many more times aunts, uncles and cousins would stop by for dinner too.

Growing up our family almost always sat down together for dinner. That is a tradition that I continue to this day. Jim and I still sit together for dinner, even though it is just the two of us. I know that the tradition my Mom and Dad started for their family many years ago benefited my family too.

Sharing our Sunday family dinner today with Liz and her family was thrilling. And even though my grandsons liked the cherry vanilla ice cream and organic chocolate cookies the best, I know they enjoyed dinner with us. And they will remember these family dinners at Nanna's house with Joy.

My recipe for a good dinner: Good food, good friends and family, and lively conversation.

Jim and I spent the afternoon and evening perusing furniture stores. We are looking for new furniture for our cozy living room and we have been enjoying the furniture stores immensely. It seems like endless possibilities when we walk through their doors, and try to picture in our minds this furniture in our home. Tonight we came very close to making a decision to purchase, however decided at the last minute to "think about it".

So we arrived home and together arranged in our minds how the furniture would sit, how it would feel, and how it would look under our arrangements. We both agreed that we like what we had picked out. A creme colored love seat sofa with matching ottoman. Two beautiful paisley chairs - one that your whole body melts into, and the other, a much finer paisley print, elegant and stately.

So we will sleep on it. And if this truly is the furniture for our home, it will be waiting for us next time we head into Memphis. In the meantime, I plan to visualize a little more vividly (a little more paisley) furniture arrangements in our beautiful living room.

I have spent several hours today reading a book that a friend gave me. My friend is the mother of four children, 6 years and under, and wife to a man who has crazy work hours. The book is titled The Proper Care and Feeding of a Husband. This is not a book I would have chosen to read at this point in my life, but am reading because she asked me to.

However, in my reading, I have had many mixed emotions. I am not recommending this book to anyone. I just wanted to write about the emotions I experienced while reading this today. Jim and I have been married 35 years, and so many of the struggles that we had as a young couple have become a faded memory. Yet I tried to think of what was most important to us and I think I have a pretty good list that we did our best to live up to.

To respect each other always.
To be honest with each other always.
To not be afraid to express love to each other.
To not let others tell us how we, as a couple, should live our lives.

To me, getting married is the most wonderful thing that happened in my life. I was only 18 when I met Jim, and up to that point, my only criteria for a husband was that I wanted a man with "hair on his chest". I have no idea where this desire for hair came from, but I envisioned myself married to such a man. I was lucky in that I married a man who had goals, financially, emotionally and physically. He knew he wanted to be married, provide for his wife and children, and enjoy life. All of this sounds so easy and wonderful, but accomplishing this is no small task. Much blood, sweat and tears go into a successful marriage. And much laughter is needed for a happy marriage.

I do not envy the young mothers today trying to balance so much, or the newlyweds with their hearts still soaring wildly. I love where I am. I am grateful for all the struggles and the successes we experienced as a couple and as a family. I am grateful for the disappointments and the triumphs that we experienced together, and I am grateful for my own growth and maturity.

And I LOVE lying in bed, with my hand laying gently across Jim's chest. He has the most beautiful chest, just as I envisioned as a young girl. And I feel the most loved when my hand is resting on his chest.

Each day as I log onto my Journey of Joy Blog, I am so inspired to see new followers. Many of you have emailed me that you are reading me, and most of you have read all the way from the beginning which started October 17, 2009. I want to thank you for the encouragement that you provide to me by following, and/or emailing.

I have enjoyed this project that I set for myself - to write about Joy in my life - and I am happy that others are enjoying the words. Life is what we make of it, and I want to make mine joyful.

My affirmation for today was this: "Sharing who I really am with others thrills my heart. The mystery of me unfolds in new ways every day." This affirmation describes me completely. I have never shared my heart and soul the way I am doing now, and I love that others are receptive to my sharing. When I come to the computer to write, I do not know what mystery I will unfold with my writing, I just let it come. Many times I am amazed at the story that unfolds, sometimes bewildered at the unfoldment, but always finding Joy in my writing.

Thank you for reading me. Thank you for inspiring me.

Today I am filled with the excitement of feeling alive! Every activity today has been accentuated with the aliveness I feel living in Tennessee. My morning started early with Jim telling me that he loves being married (to me). I took my usual walk around the neighborhood and listened to the birds singing wildly. I took great pleasure visiting Starbucks for my favorite Americano and some dark chocolate. I loved cleaning our apartment today to turn it back over to the owners and closing the door on a wonderful and passionate intermission in our lives. I adored spending an hour lounging on the sofa reading about deliberate intent and the Law of Attraction.

And now, sitting here with a glass of wine. My book notes spread on my new table for review, and my vision board reflecting me with all the things I desire. Life is Good! and I love FEELING the aliveness!

Door Bells

We are officially moved in! Jim hung my "door bells" tonight. I bought these antique looking door bells about 16 years ago when our daughters were in high school, and it was a way to hear if/when the front door was opened. It signaled our daughters coming in before curfew, boyfriends leaving at the appropriate time, and coming home from school. We have hung them in every single house we have owned since 1994 and they always seem to be the finishing touch to our residency.

I am looking forward to hearing them ring when our family comes to visit. When friends drop by, and at the end of the day when Jim comes home from work. I know I will hear them frequently followed by "Hi! Nanna!" And my heart will sing as I welcome with open arms those I love so dearly. And those who love me too.

Here's to the Journey!

Rollin, my 4 year old grandson (soon to be 5) spent the night with us and woke up with "fluffy" hair. He asked to use my mousse and I obliged. He was going to the Memphis boat show with Jim and his dad, Thadeus, and his older brother, Tucker so I assumed he was going to try to flatten all the fluffiness. Instead, he spiked and mohawked, and had a wonderful time with my whip cream like mousse. Thrilled that his hair turned out so nice, he was ready to go.

I admire the uninhibited spirit of this child and wish that we could all be more like him. Less afraid of being judged, and more concerned with being Joyful. Happy to be unique. Happy to be loved. Happy to love.

I love spending time with my grandsons because they bring great Joy to my life. They have infused my life with tremendous happiness, and have made me more mindful of the life I am living. Mindful of the Joy of being unique. Mindful of the Joy of being loved. And mindful of the Joy to love.

Here's to the Journey!

Saturday, February 20, 2010

I am wrapping up my beautiful day. Jim is downstairs with Tucker and Rollin who are spending the night with us, and I am sipping a glass of wine in my office. I finished unpacking most of my books today. I am missing some, so I think they are hidden in a box in Jim's den. I will find them - I have to touch them again. I have to see them again.

I asked Jim for a very special favor tonight, and he hung my vision board just before dinner. I woke early one morning this week thinking that a mirror would make the perfect vision board. I decided to use a large framed mirror so that I can see myself along with my visualizations. I have been keeping my "visualizations" in a beautiful gift bag while we have been on the move. Now I can make the vision board fit my new life here in Tennessee. Joy!

And I must tell you about Fynneus! Liz and her family had dinner with us a couple of days ago. Just before dinner Fynneus went shopping with Jim at Home Depot. When he returned I had the table set for dinner. Fynn kept pounding the table while I was in the kitchen saying "I love this Nanna" and again "I love this Nanna". I asked him what he loved, and he said that he loved my table cloth. Can you imagine my delight. The table cloth that night was a vivid array of colors that I always use when we are having "mexican". It was his first time to see it. But it made me see through the eyes of a child - This is beautiful and I love it. It really is that simple.

My Morning Sunrise!

Life is good with early morning walks. I took my camera with me this morning because I wanted to capture this moment. This beautiful sunrise - this beautiful day.

Here's to the Journey!

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Today was a beautiful sunny day. I walked early this morning but I am still getting use to the new neighborhood. I have tried to walk every day this week, however, on Tuesday, I got dressed and made it to the front door, took my coat off and just made a fresh cup of coffee. I was feeling a little resistance to my new walking trail, so I took the day off. I am missing the lake, the ducks and the openness of my lake walks.

But today, as I made it around my neighborhood I saw a beautiful sunrise. I saw patches of trees, and I heard birds singing. Suddenly, I felt better. I knew then that my morning walks are going to be OK. I have made this adjustment before.

So now I am looking forward to tomorrow. To walking the streets of my neighborhood, but most of all I am looking forward to taking time to reconnect and align myself. In the darkness of the early morning I find myself, with divine clarity, walking beneath the stars, watching for the sunrise.

No Monsters at Nanna's House!

Here is our new house in Tennessee. We are settling in a little more each day and discovering new things all the time. And all of us have discovered that there are no monsters here.

A few nights ago Liz and Thadeus came for dinner. We have 3 bathrooms in our house, and it seems that the boys always pick the bathroom that is as far away as possible from where ever we are. During dinner, Fynneus (3 years old) said that he had to go to the bathroom and took off upstairs alone. (as far away as possible) When he returned to the table, I asked him if he was OK and he said: "Yes. There weren't any monsters up there!" Tucker and Rollin suddenly became attentive and I looked at all the boys and told them "There are no monsters at Nanna's house." This seemed to satisfy any security issues and we all returned to eating dinner.

So here's a picture of our new house, and as you can see - there are no monsters. Only Joyful living!

I am at the apartment now having just left a yoga class with Liz. We both arrived a little early, and were sitting on our mats chatting when the yoga instructor walked up and said (with her microphone on) "ahhh, mother and daughter" and suddenly I realized how blessed I am. I felt very special sitting next to Liz, and knowing that every one else in the studio knew I was with my daughter. It wasn't very long ago that going to a yoga class with Liz on Tuesday afternoon would have been an impossible dream. Dreams coming true make life Joyful!

So now I am at the apartment for the last time to pack up my computer. I am excited to take my new Apple home. Internet will be hooked up tomorrow, and Jim has promised to hang shelves for me tonight so that I can start organizing my office. I am ready to write again. I am ready to see ALL of my books again! I am ready to reorganize my vision board because so many things have manifested over the past few months that I need to update it. And finally, I am ready for my very own sacred space to write, to read and to meditate. I am loving this Journey! I am loving this life!

I had the most wonderful Valentines Day yesterday with my Lover. Jim (aka Lover) prepared the most fabulous dinner of clam chowder, lobster tails, and crab legs. I threw in a fresh tomato/onion/olive/feta salad, and with a bottle of our favorite Marietta Old Vine, we both declared this was the perfect day. We also had time to go swimming with our grandsons and to see Liz and Thadeus for a short while. This really is the best!

Late last night, I asked Jim to help me unwrap some dishes so that we could clear out more boxes from our dinning room. Jim unwrapped so many glasses that he started to count them, and couldn't believe how many glasses we need! We unwrapped bowls, plates, and platters and each one came with a story. I am so glad I shared this unwrapping with Jim, because sometimes we remember things a little differently, and it is good to hear his version - to hear his memory.

So now I have spent the morning putting aways dishes. And I must admit that I am fanatical about lining dishes up perfectly. (You will note that I did not ask Jim to help me put them away.) My beautiful glasses are lined perfectly in the cabinets, the plates and bowls and platters are all set neatly in the dish pantry, and I feel good!

As soon as I am finished writing I will be going back home to "line up" all of my utensils in the kitchen drawers. Another delight - opening a kitchen drawer and finding perfect utensil alignment.

Life is Joyful with beautiful dishes.

My Valentine

This morning I slipped out of bed early while Jim was still breathing softly in morning sleep. I quietly prepared 2 fresh cups of coffee, slipped 2 beautiful chocolate eclairs from the fridge, and quietly carried my iPod with a new love song mix into the bedroom. I then woke the man I love. With heart, body and soul, I truly love this man.

I love that he ALWAYS loves me! I love that he has always believed in me. I love that he has always told me I am beautiful, even before I believed it.

He is at home now waiting for me to finish writing. And when I get home, I will be greeted with a smile, a kiss and a hug. And as he wraps his arms around me, I will melt into his body, as always, and the whole world disappears. For those precious moments, time stands still, and there is only me and Jim. Loving! Hearts touching! Souls bonding!

I love you Jim!

We finally have everything moved into the house, and a few of the rooms are taking on the appearance of our beautiful life. I am back at the apartment this morning because my internet will not be hooked up until next Wednesday, and I have to read some very special affirmations and mail that I look forward to daily. And........ I want to write.

The apartment is empty except for 3 small boxes, some cheese in the fridge and a beautiful screen print that Jenn made for us during her last year at U-Conn. I have saved that for last because it is so special. Jim is over at Home Depot looking for "garage stuff" and I will pick him up after I pack up some more things on my desk.

This has been a very exciting move for Jim and I, but one of the things that has made it feel so natural has been the support of our wonderful friends. Friends from Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Massachusetts and Tennessee. I received a call from my close friend, Sue, from Boston, this morning. She was congratulating us on our move, and just catching up on the past few days, and having that one call, that one conversation changed the mood of my day. That call actually energized me, and made unpacking the millionth box more exciting. I moved more quickly up and down the stairs, and I was smiling a different smile.

Meanwhile, Jim was on his phone with our good friends Larry and Alma from Michigan. They are planning a trip to Memphis, so you can imagine the delight when Jim shared that news with me. And we have many more friends who plan to come visit us, and it feels so good to look forward to seeing them again.

Jim and I have moved so many times during our life together, and have not lived near family for more than 25 years. But the friends that we have gathered along the way have blessed our lives with Joy, with laughter and with love.

Here's to the Journey!

We are at the apartment early this morning, and the movers are here hauling out the last of our furniture. It is strange to feel yourself become disconnected to a place that you have called home, even though this was home for such a short time. But I feel the disconnection very strongly, and I am ready now to settle into our new home. Jim feels the same way, and it amazes both of us how quickly we adapt. It has been fun to laugh and joke as we pack and move things. As we recall stories together, and as we find ourselves thinking the same thing, the same story at the same time.

In just a little while we will have everything moved into our new house. I am looking forward to unpacking, Jim wants to get the garage set up, and we have a bottle of champagne chilling for our toast tonight. I am so excited knowing that together, we are ready for the adventure!

Here's to the Journey!

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Just a quick note tonight. We spent last night in our new home, and I have spent all day today hauling boxing. Jim is helping me tonight, and the movers are coming early tomorrow for all the big things.

We both feel like we are in a dream. It is hard to comprehend that this beautiful home is ours and that we are leaving the apartment for good now. Life changes so fast, and even wonderful changes sometimes takes a little time to adjust to. But we are adjusting well, and loving the beautiful new home, and the wonderful life we will create there.

Here's to the Journey!

Tuesday, February 9th is the day Jim and I purchased our new home in Tennessee. We did our happy dance in the garage and it is so nice to have a garage again. My dear car, Alice, has been parked in the snow and ice for almost 3 months now, so I am excited to just pull into the garage again.

I saged and blessed our home this afternoon and the home has taken on a beauty that comes with our lives. As we carried in item after item, and box after box, it felt like the house was coming to life. Our 3 grandsons also brought a tremendous energy to our home, and our daughter, Liz and her husband Thadeus were there to cheer us on and to help with moving.

We are back in the apartment for the night, but I am looking forward to tomorrow when I will return to our new house and begin to unpack some of our boxes. As I unpack I will have the Joy of watching our lives take shape right before my eyes.

Here's to the Journey!

This morning we woke to 4 inches of snow on the ground with more coming down. So I slipped out as early as I could for my walk around the lake. It was so beautiful. It was still very dark when I left the house and I love how snow seems to come with a blanket of silence. Every sound seems to be muted, and I walked in a beautiful silence.

Just as I completed my circle around the lake, I had an uncontrollable desire to make a snow angel. (Yes - a snow angel) So I lay in the snow, moved my legs and arms back and forth, and when I stood up to survey my master piece, it was the most perfect snow angel I think I have ever made. It was absolutely perfect. I walked home grinning from ear to ear and my snow angel has been on my mind all day.

I love walking in the falling snow and how the snow catches on my eye lashes. When I blink my eyes, I feel the cool wetness on my cheeks. It is such a perfect feeling - snow covered eye lashes! It actually makes me feel like I have the most beautiful eyes in the whole wide world. I remember as a little girl loving snow on my eye lashes and playing outside for hours in the falling snow. There is no other feeling like it. Life is Joyful with snow flakes falling on my eyes.

Today is Fynneus' birthday. He turns 3 years old today, and is very excited about his party today which Liz is combining with a super bowl party. I am grateful to be in Tennessee where I can see Liz and her family so often, and I no longer miss these very special occasions. This is the first time I have been able to see Fynneus on his birthday. It also feels very good to get together with their friends that they have made over the past few years while nesting in Tennessee.

Fynneus has asked us to wear our Colts tee shirts and we will be playing freeze dancing. I can't wait for a wonderful evening filled with kids, laughter, and cheering the Colts on. This is a Joyous day.

Yeah Fynneus! Go Colts!

I have a new "Follower" today. My sister, Ladonna, signed in today to follow my writings. I sent her a link recently and was delighted when she responded that she had read all my blogs back to the beginning. And then today, I found a new follower. My daughters have been followers from day one, so I was joyful to find a new one today. I know there are many others reading my Blog, but it was reassuring to have those I love publicly admit to reading it!

When I think of my childhood, I feel like I "grew up" with 3 brothers. Ladonna is 12 years younger than me and was only 7 years old when Jim and I got married and moved to a different town. I missed most of her growing up years, but I didn't miss her high school graduation, her wedding and later a baby shower. (She is the mother of 3 young men) But other than seeing her occasionally, we have never had a close sister relationship as our life's journeys have taken each of us in different directions. So it made me feel good to know that she was reading about my Journey of Joy. I hope that if she ever decides to write a Blog, I will get to be a"Follower" and learn some of the wonderful things going on in her life.

Here's to the Journey!

Friday, February 5, 2010

While my writing has been mostly focused on finding Joy through out my day, today I find Joy in looking forward to the future. My beautiful friend, Rudy, is coming to visit me during her family spring break and I have much Joy visualizing her here with me. I will write more about this as the anticipation builds for when we can spend time together.

As for today, I started my Joyous day with a walk around the lake in the rain. I met my daughter and her 3 sons for lunch, and then joined them at our gym for a family swim time. Jim joined us after work, just in time to see the youngest fall asleep in my arms. Joy is holding a beautiful, sleeping child in your arms. I want time to stand still as I hold him. Yet as our time comes to an end, I gently nudge him awake and watch his wonderment at realizing where he is and who he is with. And in no time at all, he is back to his active, almost three years old, self with the memory of peaceful sleep fading fast.

Jim and I then enjoyed dinner out with a fabulous glass of wine, (Voga Merlot) and now are nestled into our "empty" apartment for the night. With almost everything packed away, we have released ourselves from our connection to this home we have shared for 3 months. We are anxious to start fresh at our new home where we will firmly establish the roots necessary to draw our family to us, to create new family traditions, and to allow new friends to feel the love of family within our doors.

Here's to the Journey!

Thursday, February 4, 2010

This morning I slipped out for my walk very early, leaving the house before Jim left for work. It started to mist just as I was getting close to the lake. I continued my trek around the lake, with my hood pulled tightly, and returned home while it was still dark. That is my perfect walk. When walking in the dark, you are not distracted by all the sights. Instead I can focus intently on the sounds without the explanation of sight. I cross a small bridge during my walk, and sometimes I can hear water flowing beneath. Today the sound was very faint and I could not see the movement, but I heard the soft fall of water.

I heard a train in the distance, and strangely, it reminded me of Florida. I heard ducks but could not see them bobbing in the water. I heard birds flitting in the trees and calling from the roof tops, but again, only the sound came to me. My eyes could discern only the silhouette of trees and buildings in the background.

It has rained all day and I have been in and out several times. I realize now, at the end of my day, that I did not take the time to listen again. To look at the sky, to watch the trees and the clouds. And it reminds me how I get caught up in my day and forget to pay attention. To be in the Now. To be in the Moment.

So I am grateful that today I walked. I am grateful for my hearing and my eyesight. And I am grateful that I have a new day coming right after sun up with another opportunity to watch and to listen.

Here's to the Journey!

I must write about my trip to Starbucks today. I took my grandson Tucker, who is 5 years old. I purchased an Americano with creme and an organic apple juice and a package of all natural cinnamon cookies. It took a little longer for my coffee, and Tucker found a table for us and was busy with his cookies. As I sat across from him, he looked at his snack and at my coffee and said "Life is Good". Which is something that I say to him quite often. So you can imagine my Joy at hearing my grandson express the same sentiment as me. LIFE IS GOOD. And it made me realize that I have had an impact on my wonderful grandsons whom I cherish so dearly. My hope is that he will truly realize, at this very young age, that Life IS Good, and that he has so much Joy to look forward to. When you BELIEVE that Life is Good, then it is! And that is something I hope to pass on to my grandsons.

Secondly, I must write about seeing my daughter, Liz, this evening. She is SOOOOOO beautiful. She is the mother of 3 wonderful little free spirits, and she herself is a free spirit. I so admire her, and every time I see her I am stunned by her beauty. Tonight she had her hair in a pony wrap with a bandana wrapped round. Her jeans had holes at the knees, and her sweater was a non-descript grey. Yet I saw such astounding beauty as she moved gracefully through her motherly tasks. As she took Fynneus to the bathroom. As she gathered the boys to her for the start of Tucker's martial arts class, and as she hugged me good-bye - I could only think of how beautiful she is. How lucky I am that she chose me to be a part of her creation. I am the blessed one.

I also received a wonderful call from Jenn today. She received a grant for the Gallery that she directs in New York, and it was wonderful to hear the excitement, the success, and the beauty in allowing good things to flow. I did not get to see Jenn today, but I could hear the beauty in her voice, and I can picture her now, smiling from ear to ear, and walking with her feet not touching the ground.

Life is Good!

Here's to the Journey!

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Next week Tuesday we will be in our new home!!!!!! We can hardly wait or sit still. I packed all morning, and then went to Liz's house to play with the boys. Tucker is spending the night with us, so we have big plans to go to the Library and to the Coffee Shop tomorrow. Actually, now that Starbucks carries organic apple juice and all natural cookies, the boys love to go to the coffee shop with me. In fact - they ASK to go! And anyone that knows me, knows that I like Starbucks a lot.

Joy is going to my favorite coffee shop with my grandson and chatting about life, love and the cosmos! And.......... Joy is always a good cup of coffee!

Here's to the Journey!

It is Monday and I missed my morning walk because Rollin spent the night with us. But, I already have my clothes laid out for tomorrow morning. I need to see the morning sky - I need my time to walk.

The closing on my house has been moved up to the 9th of February. I am still packing, and have almost everything put away - except for some very favorite books - I think I will just hand carry them to our new house and not even put them in a box! Yes! That feels better!

I pulled out my Sacred Space book today for a quick review. I am looking forward to space clearing our new home before we move in. I learned about space clearing 3 years ago and this is the first time we have acquired a new home since I learned this wonderful, yet ancient, practice. I am so excited because I now have the opportunity to set the tone for our new home in a way I never have before. And then blessing our home so that it is always filled with Joy and Love and Laughter! That is my blessing. I have brought several herbs from Florida that Jim and I grew there. We have dried them and I will be using them in my blessing. I have 2 wonderful Reiki candles which were created specifically as house warming candles! They smell delicious, and I can't wait to fill my home with their wonderful house warming aroma.

So now I am at peace. I will walk tomorrow. I will hand carry my favorite books to our new home. I will bless our home with Joy, Love and Laughter. Life is Good!

Here's to the Journey!
