Today we discussed Gratitude. In America, we tend to relegate that topic to November and never think about it again until the next following November. But is is a very interesting think to think on. We give thanks. We sit in the shade of trees we did not plant.
This being human is a guest house,
every morning a new arrival.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
We had a lot of contributions about what we, ourselves were thankful for. For Babies... for children. You never quite see God until you can see him in a puddle. We are grateful for health, both kept and recovered. We are grateful for awareness - we are blessed by things we do not deserve... and that when we are not blessed, we can persevere. We are grateful for music, and that we have a place in the choir.
