Saturday morning, coffee is on!
Just wanted to share with you something that a dear reader from Rhode Island sent me (it still blows me away how small the world is and how blogging has blessed me with friends I would never have met otherwise).
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." Melody Beattie
When I received my friend's email, I had had a particularly challenging day. I stopped, breathed, looked around, and thought, "be grateful, even for 'this' (the challenge that day that almost brought me to my knees)".
It is true, gratitude makes sense of everything... and brings peace.
... and in the words of my dear friend Luma, "you can only be hurt by your thoughts".
Have a peaceful Saturday.
