Attitude of Gratitude

I am thankful for:

  • The many years I had with FeeBee
  • So many friends, all over the world
  • Good health – relatively speaking for a woman of “my age”
  • Roof over my head, food in the fridge and bed to sleep in
  • A job and career I love
  • Laughter
  • Freedom of choice
  • Democracy – despite living without representation currently 😦
  • Julia Child, Jacques Pepin – old school I know 🙂
  • Orchids, plants, herbs, deck design
  • Electronic readers, books and magazines
  • Biking – commuter or road
  • Good public transport
  • Seth Godin who makes me think
  • Podcasts and podcasting

Passionate About….

Successful people I know in the nonprofit sector are passionate. Every day at nonprofit organizations staff, volunteers and Board members are changing lives and saving lives. Sometimes it’s hard, thankless work. But we aren’t working or volunteering in the sector for the thanks (or the pay).
