Gratitude is grounding + centering + allows us to be truly present. My faith paints that for which I am grateful as "gift". There is nothing I can do to earn a rainbow or a sunset or all that is encapsulated in a grapefruit. These are evidence of love.
It's not difficult to come up with an endless stream of gratitude once I get started. The light of the moon, the sound of laughter, a warm hug, seasons, excitement in the eyes of a daughter, a new leaf on a houseplant, friendship freely offered, drinking water, shadows, seeds, a warm shower...
I am here + there is good here.
Grateful for you too, friend,
