I'm grateful for a weekend of fun with my friends and family. I'm so grateful for all the abundance, love, and gifts they showered upon me. I'm grateful to be so blessed and to have learned (or be learning) the great joy of accepting that abundance. I'm grateful for the family and friends that surround my friend during her time of need as she celebrates a life passed. And I'm grateful for all the time I had with sweet Layla (my brother's dog) over the years. She will be dearly missed.
This morning I wake with a new gratitude for life. I'm grateful for the loved ones that are near (two-legged and four). I'm grateful to open my heart to them and experience the joy of love. And I'm grateful that we can be together in remembrance of those who are no longer with us. May their lives be celebrated and any tears that fall be a show of love. How do you show your love? What are you grateful for about the journey of love and those to whom you've opened your heart. Have a beautiful day and may it be a celebrations of life.
