23 Nov Happy Thanksgiving!
“Be happy in the moment, thats enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.” – Mother Teresa
Gratitude is harnessed in the present. Each moment provides an opportunity for contentment and appreciation. It’s an experience made up of giving and receiving.
As I sit here and think about life, Thanksgiving, and the flood of family members I am about to see, I am stunned by the privilege to share life’s moments. I have arms to give hugs and a mouth to say kind words; hands to give help and a heart that is broken and flawed but designed to give and receive love.
What an amazing gift that is!
As Benjamin Zander said, “A successful life is the amount of shining eyes you see around you.” So my goal in the next two days of celebration and overeating is to notice the “shining eyes” around me; to recognize my choice to give and experience gratitude.
