GIVING THANKS

Someone made the statement the other day that they liked Thanksgiving because it is the only day of the year when most American’s have gratitude in mind. I like to give thanks every day.

I wake up in the morning and step out on my lanai and see the beauty all around me. As I watch the sun go down, I again give thanks for such beauty. The more we connect to that essence of all that is, the easier it is to give thanks for everything around us.

This morning, as I sat eating my favorite breakfast of mango, a gecko friend came up to say good morning. A couple of days ago, I was drinking the juice from my bowl and he jumped up on my bowl while I had it to my mouth. I just have to laugh at the antics of this special friend. It opens my heart when I see him because of the joy he brings while saying good morning.

How many times do you look around in joy for what you have? Do you look at what you have and try to see what more you would like, or do you just sit in gratitude for what you have? The satisfaction of a full life is so important.

As the holidays are coming and the sales are being broadcast, I think of what I would like to have. I look around and see that I have enough. It brings an overflow of love and gratitude for the universe that has provided this cornucopia of plenty in my life. As I get older and learn to love myself more, I find I appreciate other people and things in my life more and more.

I give thanks for all things that touch my life from the little friends at my table, my family and friends, the abundance of each and every day, and the world around me. I give thanks to the divine that I see in each and every one of you, looking at the divine in me.

May your days be blessed, joyful, and full of fun. And may your heart be open to all the world around you.
