Gratitude = Whip Cream

I am going to keep it simple today.

This is my favorite poem about being thankful:

Say thank you, until you mean it. Thank God, life, and the universe for everyone and everything sent you way. 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.  It turns problems into gifts, failures into successes, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important and beneficial lessons.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.  Gratitude makes things right.  Gratitude turns negative energy into positive energy. There is no situation or circumstance so small or large that it is not susceptible to gratitude’s power.  We can start with who we are and what we have today, apply gratitude, then let it work its magic.  Say thank you, until you mean it.  If you say it long enough you will believe it.

Today I will shine the transforming light of gratitude on all the circumstances of my life.

Isn’t this a delightful little piece?

Now will someone please give me some pie, with extra whip cream (and a suede fringed skirt, feather earrings and the abs of a 20 year old)?

Peace, Love and Thank you…A
