Just To Be Thankful

Gratitude
unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough
…and more.

It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order,

confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal
into a feast,
a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend.

Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today
and creates a vision
for tomorrow.

A New Day

I give thanks for arriving
Safely in a new dawn,
For the gift of eyes
To see the world,
The gift of mind
To feel at home
In my life,
The waves of possibility
Breaking on the shore of dawn,
The harvest of the past
That awaits my hunger,
And all the furtherings
This new day will bring.

-John Oโ€™Donohue

To Be Human

โ€œIf you start living for the smallest reasons,
thatโ€™s when you know youโ€™re really living.

The smell of rain after a thunderstorm,
the shades of pavements when itโ€™s autumn,
the mediocre midnights and the color of the sunsets,
the warmth of oven when baking Christmas cookies,
the thickness of paper when flipping through magazine pages,
the smell of new books and new clothes and new things.

When you start looking at things,
really really looking,
youโ€™ll start living.

Because then youโ€™ll understand how it is to really be a human…
in this world full of people.โ€

May we recognize the treasure within the little things.
Wishing you a beautiful day.
