Gratitude Day 5

Today is a difficult day. I am feeling very sensitive to the suffering of others. I don't really feel like going into details; that is not the purpose of this blog anyway. I am having to look for the simplest of things to be grateful for today: there is a break in the heat. It is overcast and cool. Today is a good day to be mellow and contemplative. To be thankful for the things I have and to not be overwhelmed by what I have no control over. Today is a beautiful day.

Gretchen, this a really beautiful testament to the power of gratitude. Even in painful circumstances, there is always something that shines bright- we just have to look for it.

Sending you my love.
