Kindness goes a long way
I am blessed to be able to experience gratitude and gratefulness
I love the interconnectedness of the life and the world. The more we are aware of how we are each connected the kinder the world is.
I am grateful even for my hardships I am grateful
I like resting – my body likes to rest – my brain like to rest – my my sprit likes to rest . Our pets and wild life like to rest. We ned to follow their lead.
As I breath out I try to let go of the negative thoughts and feelings.
The concept and practice of breathing in many ways is taken for granted unless, one has some type of respiratory health condition, or if one experiences panic attacks, or in one has Covid 19, or for many other reasons – then being able to take a breath successfully is a gift.
When I think more deeply about breathing now, I will regard it more highly as a gift and value my gratitude with each breath I take.

I value the notion that the gift of breathing is a precious practice that all sentient beings share, hopefully in common harmony. Each of us, with each breath, are living life together simultaneously as we breath in, and as we breath out.
Infants, children, adults, cats, dogs, birds, bees, butterflies, squirrels, horses, cows, goats, flowers and plants, and all other sentient beings are interconnected as we breath in and as we breath out.
Today is a perfect day to share blessings – the Women’s March is so exciting and joyful and has unlimited opportunities to share blessings as 1000s of people unite to make the world a more caring compassionate place.
Walking down the street with everyone smiling and joyful – even though so many there are frustrated for different reasons, is a gift. So, so many smiles.

The various signs people carry, the buttons worn, and the conversations contribute to the future of possibilities.
I spoke to so many total strangers today – and many spoke to me. I talked for a long time to a woman police officer – she was fascinating.
The blessings of a beautiful sunny not too cold day helped to unite and advance so much that words and signs and conversations could not – but were there.
Life is beautiful
When I reflect on all my privileges I feel overwhelmed with gratefulness and I am humbled.
I currently live in a high-rise in a major city. I’ve never thought I would live in a high-rise. It was never on my agenda.
I have an incredible view of both the north and the east from my bedroom and living rooms.
When I sit on my balcony or look out my windows I see how the world moves on and on and on.
In between the buildings I have a really incredible view of the sunrise.

I try to get up super early so I can watch the sunrise. My intent is to sit and just watch it, which is sometimes hard to do.
Sometimes I can barely see it because the sun is so bright, other times I get busy and before I know it it the the sun is out. It’s such a simple thing to watch the sunrise, something I am very grateful.
But I am like many other people in the world. I start my morning in a casual way rather than enjoy the beauty of the morning.
It is not the hard to do. All I need to do is to sit and enjoy the sunrise, in a very thoughtful way, but I get involved in my daily tasks and I will miss one of the most beautiful happenings of the day.
I’m grateful that the sun takes time each to rise in the morning.
This morning I missed the sunrise. I was awake but started to work on my computer. Because it had been snowing, the skies were very grey; I didn’t see the sun.
But looking out my windows today I enjoyed looking at the different buildings and watching the steam rise from the tops pf the buildings.
I felt joy looking at the magic from whatever equipment is used to produce the work that creates the steam heat in each of these buildings. Often the steam is hidden to most city dwellers. But for those of us who see it, who live in such buildings, we are reminded we will be warm for the day and night and not to take our hear for granted – we are reminded to be grateful and thankful for the heat, that keeps us safe and warm.
Watching the steam rise at night time is fascinating and magical. Tonight I watched the steam flow past buildings that have colored florescent lighting and then the steam shined in hues of blues and red and purple making the steam very beautiful.
Living in the clouds by living in a high rise looking at the sky provides a different celestial view than living on a farm like I did growing up, looking at the sky.
In the morning I can almost tell time by the morning sky. Upon occasion, like yesterday, I saw a small crescent moon at the same time I saw the sun rise.
I know a little about astronomy but not enough to understand why a can see a moon crescent while watching the sun rise.
If I knew more astronomy, the sky might be better explained to me, but I like the magic I see and I would rather be awed than to know.
