What are you Thankful for?


It is easy to look for the things we don’t have. That white Coach satchel that screams “buy me” whenever you walk across their store; that lucrative government job at City of Vancouver with pension, health benefits and 2 months of vacation or that limited edition green leather couch for your plain living room. The list goes on.

"I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks."  -William Shakespeare

“I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.”
-William Shakespeare

We want to have answers. We want to feel accomplished. We want to have more.

While we  have unfulfilled desires, unexpected problems,unfinished business and seemingly unanswered prayers…

The questions we need to ask ourselves are…

1. Have I taken the time to be “thankful”?

2. Have I really looked into what I “already” have?

3. Have I ever been content?

Perhaps we have been taking for granted the things that have always been there. The bright early morning sunshine; the clean fresh water we drink; the bus driver who arrives at your stop on time; the newly washed clothes ready to be worn and that warm oatmeal you had for breakfast.

It’s about a paradigm shift.

From being so negative and always lacking… to that of living in a perpetual state of grace.

It is not easy. But it is also not impossible.

And so…the next time you have that tendency to be in a grumpy, whiny and  complaining mode,

think of all the things you are thankful for.

It works every single time (=

Her hands are numb, mind so drained to even cook dinner, and her whole body sore to death.

This “small and beautiful” project happened after a spiritually charged and uplifting conversation with my Mama.

After a hard day’s work, a new creative pursuit sparked in us.

With eagerness and anticipation, we will take it one step at a time. Right Ma? (=
