I will be grateful...

After I cleared off the kitchen table (it had gotten a bit messy with my lack of attention the last week)

I had my daughter's lucky bamboo flanked by my two simple brass angels. I had also my pink quartz votive candle holder in front of them. I got my incense out also.

I sat down...and carefully, thoughtfully listed many things I was grateful for. The first things I put down was my thanks for having a strong body. The illness I was experiencing could have gone much worse and I have been blessed and healed.

I had at least 50 things written down. I lit the candle, saying a prayer for all my friends and loved ones.. and one for the earth as well. I lit the incense as a blessing to my home, to fill it with peace and love.

I try to start each day in this manner. A moment of peace and reflection to put things into perspective.

with your words. Thank you for sharing it. Gratitude, it's ancient knowledge that an attitude of gratitude is the first and foremost of the ascension attitudes. I too give thanks daily for all the blessings in my life.

I'm so very glad you're on the road to recovery.

I've often felt the same way, thank goodness I have a ever-ready bunny inside, lol! It's gotten me thru some rough stuff. ;)
