Attitude of Gratitude

" all all things give thanks..."
~ The Apostle Paul

"It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up."
~ Eckhart Tolle

In this early morning moment I am grateful for -

  • my lovely wife - lifelong love, companion, and friend     
  • a loving family
  • a good night's sleep in a warm house
  • a hot cup of coffee
  • a faithful dog
  • good health
  • a christimas cactus with one lingering bloom
  • artistic expression in paintings
  • memories in photographs
  • a computer
  • the internet
  • a vocation that is also my daily work
  • time to reflect on gratitude and share it with you
  • and so much more...
That's my list.  What is yours?

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing right now, take a moment to look around.  Then, either mentally or physically, make a short "I am grateful for..." list, and spend a few minutes reflecting on it. Now take a long deep breath.  

Feel better now?
