Who do you thank?

How often do you show gratitude? Please read on to reveal that even with all of life’s challenges, you have many things to be thankful for.

Perhaps ten or twenty times a day, I notice I am expressing appreciation. Sometimes aloud and directly to someone. Sometimes quietly in my thoughts. And then I notice another category of thank you's that I express rather lavishly at seemingly random times throughout the day - when I am hiking through a forest, drinking a Starbucks Iced Mocha Latte, hugging one of my grandchildren, writing a post on Facebook, talking to Siri on my iPhone, finishing a class or an Option Process® Dialogue session, gazing right at Samahria as she smiles at me, working on my next book or eyeing the full moon (as I did at 5:00 am this morning).

In all these many situations, I hear myself saying in a gentle whisper, "Thank you, God, thank you, universe." Have I worked diligently, sincerely, with great effort and energy in my life? Yes. Have I had great challenges and difficulties to overcome? You bet - like all of us. Has the road been smooth? Oh, I am laughing! So many curves in the road! But here I am, still here, as imperfectly as that might be, and really, really, really grateful for an endless array of gifts, even those that didn't quite seem like gifts at first glance. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, God. Thank you, universe.

Love and Smiles,
