Looking at empty fields can remind us of how long it is until green begins to sprout — or it can remind us of the bounty the field offered up to nourish and delight us.
It’s our choice — do we choose to see the lack or do we decide to be filled with the memory of goodness?
I don’t know whether it was my mom who said this, but somewhere I found this and it’s become part of my personal mantra… begin as you mean to go on… I’m going to choose thankfulness.
I’ll keep deliberately choosing it until it becomes a habit.
There’s a lot of fear out there, it’s good to strengthen ourselves with all we have. It’s good to give thanks… Nothing prepares us better for generosity than gratitude. Nothing prepares us better for Peace.
If you’re traveling this weekend, please come safely home! I’m grateful for you and treasure your life and love.
