Dear Thankful Girl,
It does a heart good to remember that most everything that is wonderful, sweet and fulfilling is the result of someone helping us out, sharing their knowledge, inventing something, taking a risk, or sacrificing for us.
The sweetness of life in large part comes from the LOVE that was built into everything that surrounds us.
It will fill our hearts with bliss if we remember that the beautiful things we see were created by someone who believed in the power and the importance of beauty, and even had us in mind to enjoy them. Sometimes the beautiful things we see are things that we have created ourselves…using beautiful things that were created or invented or provided by someone else.
Our hearts soar when we take time to remember that we are all connected…that we each hold a place and a piece of the whole picture….that each of us was a part of someone else’s greatest blessing and joy in some way……and that everything we touch, everything we love, everything we enjoy has something to do with someone else, somewhere else…and that we will never ever ever, in all of our lives, no matter how hard we try…we will NEVER run out of things to be grateful for…people to be grateful for…experiences to be grateful for.
You are so so soooo loved.
