Things that make me say thanks...
~my lovely, smart and spirit filled children
~friends that love me in the good and the bad, laugh with me until our sides hurt and tears spill from our eyes
~loving touches from the one that I have chosen to be mine
~bountiful food, wine and the fact that (even though I do complain about it) my pants are a too snug for my liking
~success in my business and the ability to continue on the path to inner fulfillment and prosperity
~my freedom to be a woman, without subjugation and humiliation, because I am a giver of life
~the ability to feel my way through life, to be connected to my real being and soul
~laughter, even when you are so tired
~a roaring fire in the fireplace with the snow falling gently outside
~the Hope that all will be just as it needs to be and for the strength to perservere
~the realization that my gifts are special, and that I now am finding that I need to use them to bring love and a positive light into this world
And mostly I am thankful for all that has made me who I am today, for my purpose is being slowly unfolded before my eyes, like pages in a mystery novel that keep you hanging with each new word.
Thank you, Lord. I am beginning to see my way through the forest.
