Gratitude, my friends, is the open door to abundance. I read that once, and have never forgotten it. I have a gratitude practice that has been ongoing for many years. At first it was a journal I wrote in each night before I went to bed, and then my friend Renee asked if I would be her gratitude buddy. I am sure many of you now this story, I have shared it a few times. Every night Renee and I email each other with our list of gratitude for the day. It is a special practice we share, and out of it, a wonderful, deep friendship has formed, a friendship that has seen me through the last six weeks.
Over the last six weeks, with the exception of one night, I was able to dig through the darkness and find the light. Some nights were harder than others, but I managed to find the simple things in my day to be grateful for, and I can honestly say it has been a big part of helping move through this transition.
I can't think of a time when I didn't look back on each day and offer gratitude, and I am so very grateful each day for this practice I share with Renee.
Now, a list to share with you. Today I offer gratitude:
~ for sunrises that fill me wonder and awe
~ for waking each morning to a brand new day full of possibility
~ for that little being right up there, he fills me with such joy, and I love him so very much
~ for the tremendous support, love and understanding received through comments and emails after my post on Friday...thank you!!!!
~ for my parents, their love and support through this has been amazing
~ for letting go and acceptance
~ for the little bits of light peeking through the darkness
~ for knowing I always have a choice
~ for spring-like days in November
~ for cups of tea, and chocolate
How about you, my friends, what are you most grateful for today?
