My rituals.......every morning before my feet touch the floor, I go through a list of things that I am grateful for.
Each day as I make the turn into the drive at work, I ask for my portion of grace, I ask that I teach with love and wisdom.  When I am stressed, I wiggle my toes and touch my thumbs to my finger tips.  My brother touches his finger tips and so does my great nephew Jordan.
At night, before I go to sleep, I go through my gratitude list once again.
No matter how tired or how sick I might be, I never go to bed without washing my face.
I talk to my brother Ricky every day.
I tell Blackie Bear that he is my favorite dog every day.
I read my horoscope daily.
I try to do a gratitude ceremony once a month.
There are always fresh flowers in the house.
There is a glass of water on my nightstand every night.....most nights I drink it all.

I think that our rituals tell a lot about  who we are..........I think I have shared a great deal with you all tonight about myself.  So what are some of your rituals?  care to share them?

Good night, Sweet dreams


  1. I do not have ritual before going to bed.Mostly I instantly fall asleep when I hit the pillow
    I do bake bread for me and my parentsalmost every morning.
    My dad comes to pick it up(they live 2 km from me) and we have coffee together).
    I do talk to my brother everyday
    And Sundays I say my graces:)

  2. The only thing I can't miss is peeping in on my sleeping girls before I go to bed. They're fifteen now but I don't think I'll stop until they leave home.

  3. I know I must have a nice hot shower each morning and a strong big cup of cappuccino before 9.30 am or else I do not function at all! LOL!

    Take care

  4. Rituals: Drinking chocolate milk in the a.m. after I feed the dogs. Let the dogs out; let the dogs in. Walk the dogs. Flossing, brushing, and face washing every evening. Praying without ceasing. One cookie with milk before bed.
