Today is Thanksgiving, a holiday North Americans share. Thanksgiving is a day where we acknowledge our gratitude, our blessings. This morning as I was pondering all of my blessings, this one declared it to be the one to share ... and I pass it to you. May your day be blessed.
My blessing is my grandchildren.
As I experience their playfulness, laughter and ongoing energy, I find myself right in there joining them, giving myself permission to act like a kid - and it's so much fun!
They ask questions, they want to know about yesterday and tomorrow, mostly now. And within this, a gift of wisdom.
When they're naughty, setting boundaries, being consistent encased in love, is a reminder that using the same application with myself in reaching my goals works as effective.
As they go thru the wish book … they point out the things that they currently have and the things they wish for - is this not an acknowledgment of abundance in their lives?
They have wonderful smiles - which lighten the load in a heartbeat. What a way to influence the world.
"When I grow up Grama..." - is belief in "it's a sure thing". Along with their bodies growing, their mind continues to grow, expand, and explore - what an example! Brain cells continue to grow at any age with learning! (Fountain of Youth)
My grandchildren share their love with all of their grandparents, (we have several in our family, remember abundance?) and they know they are loved and welcomed - they're family!
I experience the many beliefs and traditions that have passed thru generations, now my grandchildren are the benefactors. I also experience new ideas developing in our family.
As my grandchildren share their affection and love to their parents, I am reminded of being their parents' parent and without my children's father I wouldn't be experiencing the blessings of my grandchildren today.
May your day be filled with abundance of love and laughter!
