IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind. ~Henry James

Today I am grateful…

  • that I attended Art Critique Houston last night and was asked to join. A small group of artists meet quarterly or so and four artists bring their work for critique. I was comfortable and chatty and was able to contribute to the discussion. This is a total reversal from my old, isolation days.
  • for the thirty seconds every day where I go through all the Click to Give websites. Just by clicking you can help feed an animal, provide literacy for children and more. Please bookmark and visit daily. It’s so simple and easy.
  • that I am outta time. I forgot we are meeting a client early and I gotta scoot.

Life doesn't promise us anything, except a chance. We have a chance to live any way we like. No matter how we choose to live, we'll have pain and we'll have joy. And we can learn from both.
Because of our recovery program, we can have life's biggest wonder---love. We share it in a smile, a touch, a phone call, or a note. We share it with our friends, our partners, our family. Life didn't promise to be wonderful, but it sure is full of little wonders! And we only have to open up and see them, feel them, and let them happen. ~Keep It Simple

I added the Click site and will try to add it to my morning meditation and prayer time. Such a simple thing to do for so many good causes.

Namaste

I am glad that you mentioned kindness today. It is something to have every day. That and compassion go hand in hand. Have a great day.

It bears repeating. And repeating. And repeating;)
