Hello Thursday! It is a gorgeous Kentucky morning and I am grateful to be alive here and now. I’m grateful for the beauty of the physical world I live in, the wildflowers, the freshly-mown lawns, the trees bursting with greenness, the ribbons of color in the sunrises and sunsets, golden mornings, warm-hued sunsets – the eagerness of the world around me to celebrate life. I’m grateful that the wildflowers don’t know anything about “best,” that they each simply “are.” That they bloom where they are with all their might and in all their glory. I’m grateful for my spiritual community, my spouse, my friends and my family and all the small, yet persistent ways that Life says “Yes,” to me. What are you grateful for today?
