Grateful All the More

The pendulum swings back and forth and today I find the mind yet stepped in visions of catastrophe. And even though this is the case I have been surprised to find little pearls of joy scattered throughout which seem to grow in the failure ground of gratitude. Gratitude for friendship, kindness, the sunshine, a gentle rain. I’m not to fond of waxing poetic but it is true that the simple act of appreciation seems to lighten the load and serves as a reminder that there is more to life than darkness and negativity.
