It is Canadian Thanksgiving today. Instead of Thanksgiving being a once a year day with underlying commercial interests, it raised questions about being full of thanks for each ensuing moment. What if I were grateful and thankful each day-each moment? This is impossible. What I need to do is hold the thought at the forefront and perhaps it elevates the thankfulness I experience.
We began with a dinner last night with our oldest son and his partner. He headed out to an out-of-town job today. Tonight, we celebrate with our youngest. He worked last night, so was unavailable.
Gratitude and thankfulness–
Turning to beloved;
Embracing one another;
Celebrating what held sacred.
In each moment–
Experiencing the extraordinary;
Revealing itself in the ordinary;
Sensing it is there.
Sharing common weal;
Valuing de-monetized wealth;
