Gratitude...


This is a picture of a fountain in the small courtyard at my office. I walk past this beautiful courtyard numerous times everyday, but rarely think to visit, to take a break, to take stock. So today, I sat there for half an hour, and listened to the waterfall, and the birds sing, to read a little, to feel the sun (yes, sun!) shine on my face, and to be thankful...
for my health (or the blissful lack of knowledge of how bad it is); for my husband and my family; for my dog; for my art; for 41 wonderful years; for my home; my friends; my neighbors; for my job, and this wonderful courtyard; for possibility; opportunity; for today - it's really all we have.

Man, you're lucky - the only thing I see out of the window at the very end of our building is the top of another building. But hey - I'm grateful I work IN a building - that isn't being bombed. I read a statistic that was very sad - 30 in 100 people in the world have enough to eat. Gratitude indeed. We are SOOOO spoiled. We need to recognize that every day. Nice post!
