As always I am grateful. The colors of late fall are somber, leaden gray, faded orange brown and a rare glimpse of green. I have a funeral to attend on Saturday, his passing wasn't unexpected and he wasn't going to get any better so yes, it was a blessing to him.
I was thinking today that I really need to look for more opportunities to support my brothers and sisters who don't have as much to be grateful for. The ones who don't know how they will pay rent this month and the ones who won't have all of their loved ones home for Thanksgiving, there's so much darkness that my light could brighten. Last year my intention was to celebrate...everything. This year I am called to dedicate myself to serve. Right now I'm working on serving the ones in my immediate sphere, there are plenty of opportunities to do better than I have.
If you are reading this, I am grateful for your attention. My Sparkfriends have helped me in so many ways. Somehow I've been sparked to make small changes, like walking and riding the bus instead of driving to work and working out with Coach Nicole almost every day. Those changes have created profound joy in my world. Walking home tonight, in the blustery, cold Thanksgiving Eve afternoon lifted my spirit and burned a few calories. Anyway, Thank you for the inspiration, understanding and good thoughts sent my way.
