Inviting the Light


It is November; a month where folks (in the US, at least) traditionally take stock and focus on the bounty around them.  It's a month to concentrate on gratitude.

As Hurricane Sandy worked her way to shore on Monday, we enjoyed an incredible sunset here in Michigan.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

--Melody Beattie, as quoted in Simple Abundance, by Sarah Ban Breathnach

I sure will.


If I do NaPoMoBloPoWhatev I'll need to plan ahead. Not sure if I will or if I won't but I'll plan on Thursday nonetheless. :D


It will be our pleasure. What a lovely statement you've put out there. If I could find that journal I may have to just cut it out and post it. :-)
