Daily Gratitude

what are you thankful for?

i love thanksgiving. it's one of my favourite times of the year, to celebrate the gracious bounty nature has given us to feast upon. the one holiday we can gather and not worry about giving gifts, only about giving thanks, and sharing time [and dinner!] with friends and family.

but is one day enough? i think not.

i like to take a little time each day, to think about what i'm thankful for. and wouldn't you know it.. it seems the more you find time to be thankful, the more things you will find to be thankful for! it's a beautiful thing, it's a good feeling.

it's a new year, a good time to look back with gratitude for all of the great experiences, challenges and lessons learned. to look forward to the coming days, creations and dreams coming to life, and to look upon this day and this moment, for all that i have [and have not!].

while i was waiting for my tea to brew, i closed my eyes to say thanks for the tea, the pot it's in which was gifted to me, and for all the hearts i've been blessed enough to share a pot of tea with.

love and Gratitude ♥
