Feeling Grateful



Perhaps Thanksgiving is many people's favorite holiday—-it is my favorite holiday—because feeling grateful makes me happy. Today I intend to be mindful of my myriad blessings. Among them are you, my blog friends.

May you be safe, may you be happy, may you be well this Thanksgiving Day.

And if you are lucky enough to share this day with loved ones, may you enjoy their company fully. And if you feast, I hope you join me in trying to bear in mind that health is a blessing too.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Here's a grace flavored by the spirit of gratitude:

With every morsel of food
The whole world sustains me.
With every breath of air
The whole world sustains me.
I now accept these gifts
With gratitude and attention.
May I use this sustenance
To benefit of all.
