    1. I'm grateful for the knowledge that this heat wave is going to start tapering off at 4PM today. I imagine what it would be like if this heat wave was going to continue for another two weeks, which makes me appreciate reality so much more.
    2. I'm grateful for the cold-water-soaked clothes I am wearing right now. They are keeping me cool enough to have a clear head and to be able to think straight.
    3. I'm grateful for the blasting fan in my room. It is spreading cool(ish) air around. That's helping me a little bit.

    Yeah ASL is awesome. My mum really wants to learn it. I've been trying to remind myself to find her something online she can use to practice daily.

    1. I'm grateful for being able to feel. Love as well as pain.
    2. I'm grateful for the sun providing fuel for life.
    3. I'm grateful for being alive. Take a deep breath and feel yourself. Oh yeah! Are you smiling? You should be! ;)
     
  9. I'm learning some ASL now, just on my own. I'd like to take a class on it, but I haven't had the time yet. Maybe over the summer. It's always fascinated me. It's funny to say, but I actually learned quite a bit from the show Switched at Birth. haha it's a bit of a cheesy show, but I've picked up a lot from watching conversation. I like to use it in worship, so I've started learning some worship songs, which is giving me a larger vocabulary. I also have some flashcards I just remembered, but I've been slacking on using them! They're not as helpful, though, because most of the words aren't all that commonly used.

    Edit: Also, ASL is a really unique, fun, and somewhat easy language to learn because it's pretty much the only language in which you can say something in English and ASL at the exact same time. It helps the brain make the connection better than, say, Spanish, where you have to say the translations separately. It's also a very intuitive language. You'd be surprised how many words in ASL you probably already know, just from using hand gestures in your everyday life.

  10. Day 4:

    1. I'm grateful for the dream I had this morning. (Described on my journal if you're interested... I don't want to explain it all again. lol) Learned some valuable stuff.

    2. I'm grateful for my church family that I get to spend some time with tonight. Finding this place a few years ago was such a blessing, and I can't imagine going back to where I used to be.

    3. I'm grateful for my heater! lol I mentioned it before but I don't think I put it on the official list yet. I'm a baby about being cold, and though our house doesn't have central heat, I'm grateful to have this lil guy next to me so I don't cry frozen tears.

    1. I'm grateful for the benefits of mindfulness. I was relaxed as hell all morning, and didn't get rattled at all, despite the third night in a row with only 3-4 hours sleep. You "rest in the knowing", as the saying goes, and your mental energy is conserved.
    2. I'm grateful for the porridge I'm eating right now. It's cooked to perfection with just the right amount of milk and sugar, made at the perfect consistency. Delicious!
    3. I'm grateful for the local library. I love the library. I love the peace and quiet, the books you can spend hours looking at, the air conditioning and the free wifi. The library is heaven for introverts like me.
