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.
