Gratitude – the Fairest Blossom

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

Wednesday of Hope – Hope that Leads Us to Dance

We did not ask for this room or this music; we were invited in. Therefore, because the dark surrounds us, let us turn our faces toward the light. Let us endure hardship to be grateful for plenty…We did not ask for this room or this music. But because we are here, let us dance.

– Stephen King

Greeting the Morning with Gratitude

As has been my custom in these blog posts, all of the posts focus on gratitude, for as the Dominican mystic Meister Eckhart once said, “If the only prayer you ever say it ‘Thank you,’ that will be enough.

First thing in the morning, before you meet or greet anyone, remember to greet all of nature, all visible and invisible creatures. Say to them: “I am grateful for your work, I love you and want to be in harmony with you!” At this very moment, in response to your greeting, all of nature will open to you and send you energy for the entire day.

Wear Gratitude

Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.

– Jalallludin Rumi

We Are Doubly Blessed

Gratitude makes us feel bursting with delight, just to remember the gifts we have received. Thus we are doubly blessed when we receive something: for the gift itself and later, in recall, for the miracle of having been given it.

Wednesday of Hope – Grateful that there Is More Good in the World

Men frequently think that the evils in the world are more numerous than the good things; many sayings and songs of the nations dwell on this idea. …Not only common people make this mistake, but even many who think they are wise.

– Maimonides

Gratitude the Breath of Life


Every time you express gratitude or compassion for any aspect of yourself or someone else, you breathe life in.
