I rather be grateful for gratitude than cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, or would I?
Humor is one of the many things I am grateful for today. I have received plenty of wonderful suggestions and resources recently in response to my appeal for help. Resuming my gratitude practice was one of the ideas that rang true for me. In light of the fact that I have to deal with a very scary and upsetting conflict this week, I am jumping back to gratitude with abandon, using this platform as a way to document my notice of what brings me joy and peace.
Please continue to think of me and walk with me through the storm, now more than ever, so that I feel less alone and more grounded in love.
So as a nod to David Letterman’s final days on late night television, I have created a Top Ten List:
TOP TEN THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR:
8 Finally learning how to wrap images around text!
7 Birds aplenty ~ singing in the morning, chillin’ on the grass nearby, and surveying the terrace for birdseed and a glimpse of Dexter ( and myself.)
6 The color green
5 Recent discovery of dark chocolate sauce that goes with just about everything
4 I was on the Washington DC to New York City bound Amtrak train in November, but not on Tuesday.
3 My odd, sarcastic sense of humor
2 Seeing my sense of humor and irony reflected back to me while watching David Letterman on TV off and on over the course of 33 ( yes 33) years.
And the Top Thing I am Grateful For:
1 Being led to the teachings of Matt Kahn. Where have you been all my life? The messages that arise from Matt are provocative, reassuring, and utter nourishment for the soul. Visit him here and decide for yourself. A few noticeable synchronicities occurred for me while watching 2 of his videos. They added another layer to my awareness that his particular style is a good fit for where I am in my development. Thank you to Barbara for introducing me to this amazing teacher that has given me a sense of hope and a new way to see my Self.
PS I am not planning a Mercury retrograde post, but if you want the real lowdown, check out Mike Lutin’s site here.
