Happy Thanksgiving not just to my American friends but to all. A prayer of thanks …
Thank you for the many gifts you have brought into my life. Thank you for my heart that beats with your love, and this miraculous body that serves me so I may serve you on this Earth. Thank you for new ideas and opportunities that are revealing themselves to me every day. Thank you for the beauty of this Earth and the bounty that she provides.
Thank you for those who care about me and bring joy and love into my life. Thank you for showing me how much I am loved and for giving me new ways to give love.
Let my body hold the force of Gratitude in every cell and let that awaken me to your Presence. May I see your gifts in every moment and be grateful for all that I am given, no matter what it looks like. Let me respond in gratitude to every situation knowing that my soul’s awakening depends on my responses.
As Gratitude fills my being, help me to flow this energy of love and thanksgiving into the world.
At the center of my being, I know all is well. For this and all my gifts, I say thank you, thank you, thank you. And so it is.
Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
A lovely surprise came in the mail for me a while back from our friend, Anne, who lives in the City by the Bay. She knows how much I love shooting pictures so she sent me this wonderful mug, which I absolutely love drinking coffee from. So thanks again, Anne!
Yes, I’m a bona fide coffee drinker and no, I will never, ever change in that respect. I do like tea, but in the morning it’s a good cup of Joe for me. This morning I had to do some fasting blood tests, so I filled up this mug, took it with me, and as soon as the vampires took my blood and I was back in my car, I drank that glorious brown liquid. Ha!
If any of my photographer friends want one of these, I believe these or similar ones can be found at Photojojo. Namaste’
While cleaning up my office, I saw this rubber stamp that I use for cards and it got me thinking. So I made a list of everyone I had thanked today for something. It was fun and it sure made me feel good. So far my list includes God, my husband, our dog groomer, my friend in CA, my sister-in-law, a Facebook friend, a waitress, and some of my fellow bloggers, but the day’s not over yet!
My parents taught me to say thank you and I would like to thank them for that. I know Dad hears me even though he’s on the other side. I’ll call my Mom pretty soon and thank her for teaching me the value of these two simple words.
Who have YOU thanked today? Namaste’
