Gratitude: a Wellspring of Joy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis past weekend, I joined with friends to celebrate and deepen our gratitude—gratitude for the earth, for home, for friends and family, for the Divine, and for each other.

I learned from these dear friends that we receive so many gifts daily that some we  take for granted, like the moment we are free of pain or the moment we inhale another breath.

But if we awake to the wonder of each day, we see that every moment is replete with grace and possibility. Gratitude flows, a wellspring of joy.

  1. This is beautiful, Lana!

    Today I got my contract from Skylight Paths– less than a month after you handed my description to Kathleen and Kay! Amazing, thanks to you!

    This is only one of the reasons I feel deep gratitude for you.

    Blessed Thanksgiving, Jann
