Today I woke up with an overwhelming sense of gratitude. It began when, as I lay in bed, I started going through in my mind a list of things I am truly grateful for.
I think I laid there for at least five minutes before nature called. As I looked out from the Black Queen’s walls to see the beautiful Ridge sunrise, I spied a mother and her young joey hopping by and I heard the songs of the birds welcoming a bright, beautiful new day.
I then started looking around and marvelling at Joan Andrew’s handiwork and the sheer joy and love we have for our Black Queen.
You know, it’s funny, once you start on this train of thinking, the list just seems to get bigger and bigger. The more you are grateful for, the more gratitude you have. Kind of cool, if you ask me. But did you also know gratitude is a fundamental part of all spiritual teachings?
So, I have a challenge for you – write a list of the things you are grateful for and I bet you too will be surprised at how the list keeps growing. I guarantee you will not regret it.
I would just like to say to each person reading my blog, how very grateful I am to you, taking time out of your very precious day, to read what I have written. I am truly grateful to you.
