I feel grateful for being alive, utterly alive and being in touch with gratitude every day. It truly makes a HUGE difference in how one sees the world; we can focus on the wonder or focus on the negative. Being mindfully grateful started for me around 1999 and never stopped. I kept a gratitude journal from then on, sometimes the list was 5 or 6 simple things: sunshine, a bird singing in a nearby tree, waking in the morning under warm covers. Other times the list went for pages including what you all focused upon this morning: all those hands and hearts that create what we take for granted.
Thank you for once again focusing on gratitude and its impact on our lives and the lives of those around us.
Hugs from my heart to yours!
