My sons, health, freedom, love, family, friends, opportunity, smiles, summer days, trees, waterfalls, a reasonable ex, beaches, belly laughs, big squishy hugs, a decent metabolism, chocolate, adventure, lamb chops, faith, anticipation, music that stirs the soul, happy tears, poetry, grateful clients, and oh so very much more.
As I was compiling my list of things for which I am grateful one of my twins walked in the room and said “Momma, you look pretty. Want me to draw you a picture?” Obviously I must add sweet, chivalrous young men to my list.
I asked him what he was grateful for (expecting video games and ice cream to top the list) and here’s what he said:
My parents, my home, my brothers, being alive, food, water, friends, being healthy, and vacations.
Maybe the age gap is merely a perceived barrier. Maybe at our core…when we take the time to assess what’s really important…we are all one.
I am proud of my boys who spent so much time this weekend helping to feed those less fortunate (see pix). I am humbled by the friends who offer support and love when needed. I am in awe of unconditional love and beauty that takes your breath away.
For those of you who think the world is crumbling into negativity, fear, and despair…
No, I don’t believe it for a second. We just need to focus on the right, the good, the kind, the love right before our eyes and it will expand.
Action Step: Don your rose-colored glasses this week and focus on what people are doing right…not where they come up short. Send me a note and let me know if that doesn’t in some capacity alter your reality.
