Well, Thanksgiving is here and people are busy preparing for and celebrating the holiday . Wherever you are today, I ask that you join me in giving thanks . I want this time with you to be about practicing gratitude . I am grateful for the opportunity to write and share with you things that are important to me. I am grateful to offer this blog as a place that might be of support and gift you with a remembrance of who you are. I am grateful to be in a position to use my path as a tool for guidance of others.
I am grateful for my life . I am grateful for my husband, my children and grandchildren. I am grateful for my mother and brother being in my life. I am grateful for the many ways that I am called to be present  with and for others. I am grateful for being alive and my health . I am grateful for my sight and ability to hear.

The wonderful singer/songwriter Jack Fowler wrote a beautiful and simple song about gratitude. I leave you with his words and invite you to stand in gratitude  for this beautiful and amazing life.
Grateful, Grateful…I am grateful
For all that I have
All that I am
I am grateful
I’m so grateful
Please affirm with me: Today, I simply give thanks and allow that to be enough.
