Life is the greatest gift of all.
Unexpected. Undeserved. Unmerited.
Given to us freely – in love, with love, for love.
It is the wellspring of all the other gifts in our life.
Today, I am specially thankful for the gift of life.
If there is one thing I have learned in life,
It is that life is not meant to be lived alone.
It is meant to be spent in company and in community.
I am thankful for all the persons and relationships in my life
who have given me joy and happiness,
who have made me strong and wise,
who have filled my days with meaning and love,
who have made my life-journey the wonderful and awesome adventure it has been.
Today is the day I pause to count our blessings
and be profoundly thankful for all the gifts and blessings that have come my way.
Often, I get blind sided by my misplaced wants and inordinate desires.
I forget the blessings I have received and continue to receive.
Thanksgiving Day is the opportune time to pause, relish and truly appreciate
‘my one wild and precious life’
and the Source of it all,
the Presence who gives everything as gift.
‘It is right to give Him thanks and praise.’
