DFS_JBR 039

 

Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer.

Maya Angelou


When we appreciate all that we have in life, our egos step out of the way, inviting even greater abundance into our lives.
Practicing gratitude for our lives – for the air we breathe, for our magnificent bodies, and the beauty of being alive – is a wonderful place to start. From this, we can expand outward, like ripples in a still pond, appreciating everything and everyone we encounter and those who touch our lives as well.
What are you thankful for today?
