Hello Monday! I am grateful to be alive on this gorgeous morning! I’m grateful for the abundant sunshine, for sleeping like a rock after an afternoon of hiking in the woods, for a landscape covered in wildflowers and tiny, sweet puffs of color stretching for the sun – eager simply to be. I’m grateful for the adventure of rock-hopping along creeks and the company of friends, for fun food in fun places and laughter and love, for my spiritual community and being reminded just how connected we are to everything around us. I’m grateful for the freedom and joy and peace that comes with that sense of connection and being. Life is good and I am grateful. What brings a smile to your face today?
