Look around you and feel grateful for what you have in the present. This morning I am grateful for the cool breeze, the birds chirping in the trees, my mowed backyard, the birds feeding on the feeders, the fun dinner we had with Maria and Mike, the clock's chime and gongs striking six am. I am grateful for my computer, my ability to type, and to say some words.
I am grateful that I am able to be present in my living this morning. I am present in the moment and cherishing the beauty that surrounds me. This is a new day, and new things are about to happen. New life is in the making; I chose to live and thrive not just survive.
