Gratitude

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos into order, confusion into clarity...

It turns problems into gifts,
failures into success,
the unexpected into perfect timing,
and mistakes into important events.

Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today
and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Thank you for this one, Meri. I have been feeling rather sad for the past few days with various struggles and your post made so much sense to me. I am grateful for so many things. One of them is an insightful friend like you. But your post has made me think about keeping a gratitude journal online. Just writing down a little list each day of what I am grateful for. Thanks.
xoxo,
Noelle

I revel
in my gratitude
for your BEauty
and generous sharing
your light shines into
the igloo
of my winter dreaming
and for this I am
very thankful...
