Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow every day good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s world. — Pema Chodron

This is a beautiful thought: that we are fed from the table of the Universe, Whose board is ever spread with blessedness and peace. — The Science of Mind


I am so Blessed

This morning I awoke in the song; “I am so blessed, I am so blessed, I am so grateful for all that I have.” As I begin to sing out loud I realized how truly blessed I am in every part of my life. Even the seeming struggles are blessings in disguise. When I look with eyes of love I can find blessings everywhere.

The goodness of God reveals Its wondrous banquet table of life in great splendor. Life spreads its bounty; infinite possibilities are ours. I laugh when I think of how life hands me a large plate “all that I have is thine. . .”

As I approach the banquet of life, the choice is mine. Then I notice pickles. I don’t like pickles! Why pickles? More laughter rings in my ears. Look for your favorite to fill your plate. Don’t shame the banquet because some pickles are included, for some, pickles will be their first choice. Make your choices from a place of loving it all, of loving what is. And, most important, choose to love yourself in the process.

Life is filled with choice. The banquet is open to each and every one of us.
I fill my plate with love, compassion, excitement and celebration. My possibilities are plentiful. I am filled up with the abundance of life. I am so blessed.
