There is a very interesting book entitled "The 45 Day Miracle" by Melody Beattie. I think I have spelled her name correctly. Anyway, the idea in the book is to, each day, send to a friend a list of that for which you are grateful. How about expanding on that and not only doing a gratitude list or item but also talk about the things we really love to see and do? It is a great way to meet others with common interests and learn about things perhaps previously not considered.
I am grateful for Big Band music and the feelings that come with connecting with friends. I love the smell of freshly mowed grass, the pleasure of landscaping and running and playing sports--feeling like a kid again.
