We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.

Thornton Wilder

September 27th - Grateful Sunday

Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and give thanks continuously . And because all things have contributed to your advancement you should include all things in your gratitude.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

As usual for a Sunday Im sharing my gratitude for another great week.  My family and I have safely made it through another week without being touched by the coronavirus.  We are all healthy and alive.  I rejoice that we are all safe and happy.

I’m thankful for the season of fall that is now upon us.  It’s the season of harvest and celebrating the fruits of our land.  We all have plenty to eat and lots of good food. Here in Ohio, we haven’t been touched by any of the fires and storm hazards that others have.  We are safe and sound.  The trees are just beginning to show off their beautiful colors which will delight us for several weeks before they all fall and the trees will be bare.

It’s a wonderful time of year when the weather isn’t to cold or too warm and we can enjoy being outdoors before the cold of winter keeps us aindoors for the most part.  

There is so much to be thankful for that the list is unending.

I hope that you too can enjoy a grateful Sunday wherever you are.  

There is truly always something to be thankful for.

Through they eyes of gratitude, everything is a miracle.

I think you covered the most important things we are thankful for this day and most days. Leaves are falling here in Michigan too but the fall flowers are so pretty. Stay well and happy. All y'all.
