#FavoriteFallScents

I love all things Apple Spice!! Harvest time for apples is Fall. The scent is crisp and sometimes with that hint of cinnamon, it is just divine like an apple pie!
You do pumpkin spice while I stick to apple.

CBee I agree! I‘m just not a pumpkin spice fan 😂🤷‍♀️ 2d

Sophia was alone every other weekend while her husband worked. He knew this. He knew that she brushed her hair with a hundred strokes and that she always went to bed by midnight.

I have a great family support. My sister, pictured in front, is my best friend. We are 2 years apart and she is a twin, but she is closer to me than her wombmate. We tell each other everything. I love her.

Photo from last night at my nephew's 19th birthday!

Day 29 of 31

I am grateful for my regular customers at work.
I work in a grocery store, and sometimes my regulars are the ones to bring me out of a funk, or share a good joke with. Over so many years being there you form a bit of a friendship and I appreciate them all.
Even the ones that have helped me develop patience.

#Recovery

I instantly remembered this idiot that wrote a whole story about recovering from addiction and even went on Oprah to promote it, only to find out it was all lies!!!!

Eggs 👏🏻👏🏻 1w
marleed I read this book at a time when someone close to me was crawling on the rock bottom floor of addiction. My feelings about this book were visceral and I was equally gutted when soon after it was discovered as a ruse. Much later I had some sympathy for Frey. He was writing though addiction having no idea of Oprah or a best seller. Publishers opted to market his work as a memoir vs fiction inspired by addiction. The whole thing was weird. 1w
fredamans @marleed I read it and it rang deep in me. I was an addict. It felt like such a distrust to learn he lied. I lost the faith in trusting anyone to help me through it. Thankfully I am almost 22 years sober, but it wasn't an easy road to get there. 7d
marleed @fredamans oh my gosh, congratulations on your road to recovery. I vividly recall my feelings about the ruse of this book and I was on the sidelines helplessly watching the struggle. I can‘t even imagine what that ruse would have felt like for you looking to this book as a an hand to pull you through that horrific bottom. I am so glad you found your way to the other side. 6d

I am grateful for Drew Buchanan.
One of the best tattoo artists in my city. He did this portrait of my grandfather and it looks exactly like the photo I took him. He is so talented, and the others that work with him are too! Another guy in his shop did my Elvis portrait.
So let's just say I am grateful for tattoos.

I am grateful for Fiona not hurting any of my friends and family down East. I have many loved ones in Nova Scotia, and that was a deadly storm to watch pass over them. So grateful the worst is a mess and no one was swept out to sea.... well one lady was in Newfoundland but they got her back!

Day 24 of 31

I am grateful for running shoes.
I wear them almost every day. I walk almost everywhere so shoelace express is my most used mode of transportation. I'm especially grateful for Nike making comfortable shoes as well as stylish.

What are you grateful for today? Share 1-3 things.

Hedon 1) That it was dry and sunny al week
2) that I could still run with my back pain (maybe I shouldn't but ...)
3) Caring for a sick parent who is getting better.

I write down 3 things every morning, it really helps to set a more positive mood every day. small habits contribute to change.
2w
fredamans @Hedon I agree with you 100%. Positivity begets positivity. Hope your parent feels better soon! 2w
