Hello Friday! I am grateful for the life that lives me! I’m grateful for a peaceful, harmonious life with my beautiful spouse and animal family, my amazing human family and friends. I’m especially grateful for the morning sounds in my house – whistling tea kettles, the thump of paws on the hardwood as cats abandon their roosts and then the padding of their little feet as everyone congregates in the kitchen, coffee dripping through the paper filter, the clock ticking on the wall- I never hear it at midday and yet, its ticking then – my meditation timer chiming it’s pleasant tone. I’m grateful for these sounds that play my days’ beginnings – they are soothing and comforting to me. May I carry the awareness of this peace and joy and comfort with me throughout the whole day long today. Peace and blessings.
