Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.

~Maya Angelou

Hello Saturday! I am grateful to be alive right here and right now and I give thanks as I breathe in deeply and feel life in me. I am grateful for sleeping soundly in a warm, comfortable bed in a warm, comfortable house. I’m grateful for all the small, wonderful things I tend to take for granted – my toothbrush and toothpaste and regular dental appointments, clean water flowing from a faucet inside my warm, comfortable house, a safe place to take a hot shower everyday, plenty of gloves and hats to choose from to wear when it’s cold outside, dry shoes, a warm coat. I’m grateful for dear friends and family, my loving spouse and adventures with her, a strong, healthy body and lots of exercise, finding joy tucked in unexpected places in my life, opportunities and more opportunities – an inexhaustible supply of opportunities. Today, I intend to discover even more of the small, wonderful things I have taken for granted and to appreciate them being in my life. What are you taking for granted? Peace and blessings.
