My mouth just watered. It must be that time of year again. Most of us will be with the family and friends who helped make us, literally and figuratively. But if there are people in your life that won’t be at that table tomorrow, please think about reaching out to them (whether by technology, or the art of the heart energetically) and letting them know how you feel about their contribution to your life, or…just say, “Hey.” Don’t elevate the mundane and minutia of the business of every day living to allow you take them for granted. You never know when you might lose them — the bounty that flows from gratitude doesn’t require a special day. No plane, train or automobile needed to share the love – a call or a prayerful meditation can speak volumes. Happy Thanksgiving and see you back here on Monday, bewitched readers.
Pass the tryptophan please and thank you!
I know that some of you are having a hard time finding thanks this year. We have suffered. We have worried. We have seen debt rise, income drop and unemployment soar. The tough times are not yet over. But for today, let’s decide we have hit bottom. We can now reposition ourselves, redirect and push off with a force that catapults us from the depths.
I give thanks for hitting bottom. I give thanks for the lessons and incredible gifts of compassion and mercy I found there. I give thanks for family, friends and extended community whose very presence on this planet, gives me strength. I give thanks for health and the spirit of laughter. I give thanks for the joy of service. And most of all, I give thanks for amazing readers who share their stories so that we all may learn and grow. Thank you for your questions, your comments and your readership.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving,
Juicy Coaching for Leaders and Individuals.
