Where has the time gone? It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away. The To Do list continues growing, and the idea that Christmas is not far behind seems daunting at best. As I prepare to spend time with family and friends in the coming days and weeks, I am quietly reminded of the power of gratitude. There is a post-it at my desk that brings it all home…
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough. It turns chaos to order.
It makes sense of our past, and brings peace for today. Gratitude turns a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
It changes confusion into clarity and brings a vision for tomorrow. Gratitude turns a meal into a feast.
I am so thankful for you, my readers. I am also grateful for great friends, good neighbors, people in my life who really care about my well-being, wonderful family and a comfortable place to call home. I trust that gratitude will show up at your door over the next few days. May it bring you clarity, comfort and an opportunity to breathe out and just enjoy what’s in front of you in that moment.
Cheers! Chien, Chien! Salute!
