Ode to Gratitude

Where did you come from

And where did you go

I felt your presence

Going to and fro.

I searched for a reason

As I walked along

Some words came to me

And created a song.

So precious and mysterious

Gratitude you came

When I least expected

Very much the same.

I listened to your message

Wrote a note or two

Send them to the universe

And right out to you.

Thank you for the mystery

That this life can bring

All the joys and laughter

And the birds that sing.

Thank you for today

The present to unwrap

Exploring all the elements

Bringing them all back.

Thank you for this moment

And the focus it brings

Something special now

As the bells do ring.

Thank you for this little ode

As it came to me

Writing it all down

So we can simply be.

Gratitude Stood Next To Me

Spring Magic

 

I looked around the room and didn’t recognise anyone. It was strange going somewhere and not knowing who was going to attend. Chatting away to strangers can be so interesting and enlightening and takes you away from the things on your mind and gives you a welcome break from the worries of the world.

So many stories of life and sharing your own one puts things back into perspective. I realised as I was reflecting on the day, that Gratitude had been standing right next to me, my old friend was supporting me, as I felt thankful for the day and for the people I had met.

I am so grateful for everyone I have ever met, they have helped to shape me to be who I am and where I am now. The challenges and triumphs have been stepping stones in life and I am sure ahead there will be many more.

So just for today, remember gratitude is right next to you too – remember to be grateful for all the special moments in your life, the joy of friendship, the joy that animals can bring into your life and the joy of Spring flowers, sparkling in the sunlight and shedding a golden glow out into the garden.

 

Gratitude with Joy

Every small ‘thank you’ brings a smile to your face when you receive it. The joy this can bring to you can be shared with others as you play it forward. Who can you thank today?
