I am grateful to every woman involved in Solar Sister. There’s so little hope to be found in news of climate change and ecological devastation, until we look at people who are doing something directly in their own communities. Thank you. This gives me hope!
Choice makes all the difference doesn’t it?
Yes indeed, Sheila. And oftentimes the gifts and blessings are right there in our annoyances!
Much appreciated Mermy.
Thank you Jason.
Good to hear you are better, Cintia. May your strong and grateful heart bring you many more joys.
Thank you Sarah.
Thank you so much Sheila, especially for sharing the image that came to you. I also want to thank you for spreading appreciation and love around as you do here on Gratefulness.
Has anyone mentioned, Creek, that your writing is powerful? Lines like “a break in the internal darkness” and “gratefulness for the ineffable miracle” stay with me. Thank you for your honesty and the beauty that rises from it.
Pain has a way of unzipping us right to the core doesn’t it? I’m glad you let everyone see the best in you.
Your father’s grateful way shines in your every word. Thank you Sheila.
I love the way you put this Katie, that my father is a blessing to you. Made my day!
Beautifully said. Thank you.
So true Vince, we have to demonstrate love. Affection, caring, and appreciation are ways to put love in action. Thank you for your kind words — those too are a kind of love.
I miss my dad too.. When he comes to mind I try to remind myself he’d want me to be happy, and so I do my best to be glad for the time we had rather than linger in sorrow. Sometimes this works.
I’m glad you shared that reflection, Robert. You’ve given the rest of us something to mull over!
Thank you Mica!
Thank you Sheila! I am grateful for your perspective. It helps to know that, looking back, you can see that difficulties have included light as well.
Thank you Helen!
Dear Sheila, The lift we feel at an act of kindness (given or received) surely is a reminder that compassion is our natural state of being.
Wishing you and your family the best. warmly, Laura
