bon vivant tuesday: thanks be....


....is served

we return thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us.
we return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water.
we return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
we return thanks to the moon and stars, which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
we return thanks to the sun, that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
lastly, we return thanks to the great spirit, in whom is embodied all goodness, and who directs all things for the good of her children.
~ iroquois prayer, adapted

i am thankful …
for mr c who challenges me daily and has become a part of my dna
for our little kitten who loves to sit on my lap while i work and occasionally crawl up to purr his affection in my ear
for the ever changing path towards inner tranquility…
for the feeling that i am getting closer…
for family
for the ability to travel
for lungs that breath
for hands that write
for love

oh so thankfully ~ mrs m
