Thank You for Being You

From time to time, I focus on being grateful for each thing that comes across my path that day. It might be a person, thing, or a memory.  

While doing the dishes, I thank the soup spoon for bringing the soup to my lip and the bowl for holding the soup. 

I express gratefulness for my easy access to clean drinking water, hot showers, a warm bed, and electricity. Of course, my best four-legged buddy, Lonzo, always tops the list.

In deeper ways I appreciate the people in my life. I love moments of spontaneous hugging.

Family, friends and neighbors across the years bring a gleam to my eyes, and a smile to my lips. The uncontrollable laughter, tear-filled comfort and love, and cheerleader-style support hold fast in my mind.  So very many wonderful people cross my path.  

Truth be told, I believe people to be inherently wonderful. The human design contains a light of wonderfulness. 

Life occasionally brings thoughts of fear and uncertainty. This leads people to doubt their wonderfulness and hide their light.

I am very grateful to all who lean in with enough bravery to show up as their full wonderful selves.  

To those who challenge, listen, question, mentor and help me be a better person, please know how very much you are appreciated. 

Thank you for reading my blog. You encourage me.  

I am grateful for you. You are truly wonderful. Thank you for being you.
