Deepening Gratitude

She sat. Legs crossed. Eyes shut. Focused on her breathing. In. Out. In. Out. Until everything fades away, and stillness is found. Images flicker behind her eyes. To rapid to consciously process, but they are processed and remembered. In. Out. Breathing. Flashing images. Repeated. Washed with love. Deep in gratitude. Slowly returning to the present. Where the stillness will carry her through the day. Where the breath will be focused on. Where her gratitude will be deepened. Where life will flow and unfold in calmness, wonder, and delight. In stillness, deepening gratitude, she lives and breathes each day. Sending love to all along the way.

A Toast to New Beginnings

Although the day started out the same,
Like any other day.
It's new! It's new!
You chorus to me.
Embrace the day!
Let it be!
Think of it in all of its newness.
Celebrate the way that the day unfolds.
See the blessings, the opportunities, and magic.
Watch your eyes open wide.
For today is new,
And fill of surprise!

Embrace the day, and it's glorious unfolding.
See the deliciousness in every moment.
Toast the day!
To new beginnings!
Let's go celebrate!

You Mean A Lot To Me

Although I forget,
To say thank you,
I love you,
You mean a lot to me.

Although I forget,
To express my gratitude,
To hear you through,
You mean a lot to me.

Although I forget,
The simple things,
The joy you bring,
You mean a lot to me.

What I do remember,
Is your dedication,
Your hopes and dreams.
You mean a lot to me.

What I remember,
You working hard,
You pushing through,
You mean a lot to me.

What can I say,
Words are not with me those days,
Yet silently, I pray. Because
You mean a lot to me.

So if I forget,
Remember this bit,
You mean a lot to me.

My Grateful World

In the quiet of the moonlight,
stars twinkle bright,
capturing my gaze.
I feel so small under the canopy of stars,
but I am so big in your world.

Your tiny hand reaches for mine.
You gaze toward the sky.
A brief moment of quiet embraces us.
For a rare moment,
you are speechless.
I relish the quiet,
gulping it in as I breathe.

The moment passes,
the questions start again.
The endless chatter.
The music of your voice fills the night air.
You giggle over something you just said.
Oh, how magical that giggle is.

I smile.
The quiet was fleeting,
the chatter,
the giggles,
and those speechless moments,
all come together to fill my world.

My grateful world.
