On this Thanksgiving day, I am filled with gratitude. Gratitude for the food and shelter that enable me to live, gratitude for the joy in simple things, and gratitude for this human body in which I can smell, taste, hear, see and touch the Earth. I am thankful for my husband, my parents, my sister and her family, friends and family far and wide. I am thankful for my children who teach me more each day than I could ever imagine. I also want to let you know how grateful I am for you. As I develop that which I wish to give back to the Earth you have been there with me. You teach me and stay with me as I try to articulate this beautiful vision of life that I see. May you and your loved ones feel enlivened by the possibilities for health and harmony.
May all beings be safe and have their needs met,
May all beings be well and live in harmony with nature,
May all beings be happy and know contentment regardless of circumstances,
May all beings be let go of anything in the way of their true freedom.
