I have just read the article about Brother David turning 91!! I didn’t know that it was today, the same day of my op.
In any case, congrats to Brother David, and I am so grateful that he inspired this gratefulness website with a young student (watch the video by Margaret Wakeley, please, to learnabout Brother David’s life!). Thanks to the coworkers of gratefulness.org and the wonderful grateful community!
I can definitely say that since I have got to know Brother David and this website, and by many other fortunate coincidences, my life has improved enormously ever since – because I had been ready for it of cours after eternal times of suffering. My illness is an occasion to continually learn more and more to trust in God and the good which is everywhere, we have to find it or bring it or call it forth ourselves. This gratefulness community is a wonderful thing and is helping me enormously to go through all of this and to improve my life by keeping it simple, present and grateful and filling it more and more with love and joy!
Happy birthday, Brother David, and cheers to all the grateful(ness) people! In gratitude! Ursula ✨❤
I’ m back, dear grazefulness team, in an astonishingly good state and mood! Thank you all a thousand and more times for your love, support, prayers and loving thoughts! You have helped me so much!
I also thank God of course, and the guardian angels who have carried me through once again. And the doctors and medical team who do their best daily to help us get better and heal. And my family and good friends as well as people from more far away who have all been with me especially in this moment.
I love today’s Word for the Day: As the Sun shines upon my heart, so may my heart shine upon others!
Love to all of you, Ursula
Thank you for your healing and loving thoughts, dear Palm! Your support is sooo precious! Namaste 🙏✨🌺🌻🌹
Thank you, Diane, for your constant thinking of me, your steady love and support, this time especially for lighting a candle and your words which tiuched me deeply: ‘You are a child of the Universe, no less than the trees and the stars.” You too are, and we all are! We should always remember this!
Hugs to you, have a safe travel and beautiful time shared with yiur Anam cara!! 😘🌹💞🎈
Thank you soooo much, Mary, your posts are always so helpful and supporting! Thank you for sharing my happiness, too! HuGS 🌸🍀🌺☀🌹
🌻☀✨😘 Grazie, Anna!
Never mind, it happened to me, too! 😊
Wondeeful, Aine! I know what you mean … And hey, what you did before they came DOES sound VERY much work and VERY much to ve grateful for!
And the visit and the walk and conversations too! Glad with you, Aine!!! ☀ More hugs!!
Thank you Aine, so beautiful!! 🌺 hugs!
Thank you for your honesty, Kevin!
I love this sentence: ‘Forgiveness is fruit from a tree that is high in spirit.’
And it is one of the most healing fruits!
Thank you, Anna! I was also moved to tears by Diane’s words when reading them last night and by Mary’s, Manda’s and your loving words. Aine also wrote to me below, and I feel supported by so many in this community – be it writing to me personally, thinking of me or by simply reading their reflections which often speak to me! I am grateful for your support. Blessings☀❇🌺 Ursula
Hi Alicia, grateful to read from you! It seems to me that these are relatively good news!
I undergo a special kind of surgery tomorrow and pray that all goes well for me. Wishing your husband and you that all goes well for you, too!
Dear Manda, thank you for your beautiful post and especially for all your good wishes! Good news is that there was no growth of my tumors in 4 months as today’s exam has shown! Pray all goes well tomorrow for me! Namaste!
Dear Aine, tomorrow morning (European summer time) I am undergoing a thermoablation in hospital. Thank you for your prayers and Hugs! Love Ursula
thank you so much! You are right, I shouldn’t worry about that, but I understand that you are all waiting for a message from time to time! I do myself many times when thinking of someone at special times here, and I want to know how the person is doing. It’s natural! But it is true that answering to each one who writes so touching things with an individual comment is often difficult for me and causes me remorses. That’s what I have to learn – living without remorses! 😃
Best to you, dear Pilgrim! 🌺 And to everybody else here on gratefulness.org!🌻 Ursula
Dear Mary, thank you so much for your words and thoughts!
Please read my answer to Anna below – I am soooo tired, I have to sleep now!
Much love and prayers, and thank you again, dear Mary! ~ Ursula
Grazie, cara Anna! Thank you so much for your thoughts, especially on the occasion of singing at the wedding yesterday! Sooo beautiful and lovely! Hope you enjoyed it VERY MUCH!
Well, relaxing is not the word I would use .. I have so much to do, but lately was happy that this kept me from thinking too much! On Tuesday I will have another examination, and on Wednesday I shall get a radiofrequency ablation. I am quite nervous and suffer from sleeplessness at the moment.
My younger son has left for a summer camp today and will come back on Saturday, while my older one is at home and my husband is working – but my mother will come for a few days so that my son is not alone. I have had some worries about him again …
Thank you everyone for your warm and wise words again when answering to my posts when I came back from my pilgrimage!
Mary, Pilgrim, Palm, Diane, Anna, Aine, Gargi … You all touched my heart with your welcome back and loving thoughts! Diane, have a good travel and enjoy being with your daughter!
You others, sorry that I don’t check in and aswer regularly, computer time is stressing me too much! I prefer doing my meditations, lying down to relax a bit … and sleep, which is not easy at the moment.
Manda, Debbie … I was so glad to read from you again! Welcome back! And Blessings!
Thank you everyone for your prayers and healing thoughts! ~ With much love, Ursula
Thank you, Aine, your posts are always treasures!! Much love, Ursula
Thank you, Always Learning! I have always thought that learning is something which goes in two directions, and we are always teachers and students at the same time! Anyone can teach us something if we open our eyes! Congrats to your students, they are blessed to have you as a teacher, I imagine!
