Gratitude Jazz

It seems that I end up taking the weekend off from my gratitude reflections so I can work on the Sunday sermon....so, now I return to reflection on "J". But first I also want to point out that there are three others I know of who are participating in the alphabet meme: Alter Ego; Deb; and HotCup.

Ok, now for the "J's"....

Jazz. I love Jazz. Curiously I had almost no jazz on my iPod (the one I HAD before I dropped it on an airplane)...but I do love Jazz. It's fun to listen to at a club, it's fun to dance too, it's perfect music to get sappy with...I especially love the vibes - maybe I'll remember that when I get to the "V'S"....

Jewelry: I don't have a lot, but I love the pearl necklace I found in a resale shop and wore on my wedding day. I have often wondered if they are real...And now in the SW I am accumulating some very nice turquoise. Oh, the choices, if I had big bucks to spend. Then, next year for our 25 wedding anniversary I want to change up my wedding band and engagement ring. I'm thinking of having the original sapphire and diamonds re-set in a slightly different pattern and in platinum instead of yellow gold.

J - my daughter. She is such a wonderful person - strong, smart, beautiful, self-determined.

I'm not much for jewelry, but I echo your sentiments about jazz :)

Ok, run a pearl against your tooth edge. If it feels gritty, it's real. I like what you're doing with the gratitude thing.

The readings that we chose for the service tonight were all picked specifically for this service because they lift up the role of women ...
