During this time of the year, we, at least those of us with an interior life, tend to become very reflective of the things that life continues to show us. Personally, I've meditating upon the changes, the challenges and the Blessings that have been visited upon me and those I hold dear. This short entry is to acknowledge the 10 Things I’m Most Thankful For:
I am thankful for my health, and my general state of well-being. Without these, life would be this huge theatrical play in which I never got a chance to perform.
I am thankful that my mom’s most recent mammogram showed no signs of cancer.
I am thankful for the roof over my head (no matter the STOMPS & BUMPS I endure along with it).
I am thankful that no forces of nature, no hellish hurricane nor earthquake, or terrible tsunami has wrecked havoc upon my life, its quality, or its being.
I am thankful for the handful of people I can genuinely call “My Friends.”
I am thankful and grateful for the bravery of our soldiers overseas fighting in two wars to protect our freedom.
I am thankful that none of the recent terrorist plots and conspiracies against this Country have proven successful.
I am thankful for the gift of self-expression and for the healing it sometimes brings.
I am thankful for the existence of music and that it is a Living Thing which continues to feed my spirit.
I am thankful for my life, no matter its joys, recent disappointments and strife, it has not destroyed, defeated or left me stranded in the scenery of depression or failure.
I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday.
