'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' – Melody BeattieThis morning I was rushing to check my Inbox feeling certain that Haydn's patience would soon run out; we were due to leave home about 7.30am. On opening a message from a very sweet friend in the USA I was surprised to learn that she had chosen this day to check the latest entry from my friend 'Starry' at Easy Giving 101. Being her first visit to the site, was it a coincidence that my name had been mentioned in the Post? My American friend appears to have read into the lines that I am going to die sooner rather than later. She naturally showed heartfelt concern. Of course I felt my heart begin to pound, wondering if Starry had had one of her 'insights.' I could not contain myself, or my pulse rate, as I hastened to get over to Easy Giving 101. Starry's Post is on the subject of acceptance and I certainly hope you will take the time to read her carefully chosen, articulate thoughts on her ability to accept MY JOURNEY. There is also a little on Starry's thoughts in a previous Post The Week That Was.
As it is now past my bedtime, I will leave you with some 'homework' should you choose to read Starry's Post. I believe this is a very important subject and I look forward to further discourse.
Take the time to enjoy the season and feel the joy in each new experience.
