Today, I’m thankful for… well… today.
I’m thankful for a really fantastic morning yoga class that I really feel brought me in to spiritual alignment with this Thanksgiving day. I’m thankful for the energy of love and compassion and gratitude that resides in my Sangha and thus, resides in me.
I’m thankful that my kitten has little ways of showing me she loves me and that she misses me when I’m not home.
I’m thankful for a my 30% employee discount at Starbucks. I’m VERY thankful for Starbucks Lemon Loaf. I’m EXTREMELY thankful for triple shot lattes.
I’m thankful I made it to St. Louis safely. I’m thankful gas is even cheaper here than in Evansville. (Although I’ll save my concerns about what deflation does for those of us paying back any sort of loan for a day that I’m not supposed to be giving thanks…) I’m thankful for getting to do 2 loads of FREE (to me) laundry.
I’m thankful for a kitchen full to the brim of delicious food today, when, for so many others in the world, today is just another day they are hungry. (Wow… all of a sudden I don’t feel right about my impending over indulgence…)
I’m thankful to have gotten to spend a portion of this day with my Sangha, for getting to next spend a portion of this day with my family and more still, for getting to spend a portion of this day with my best friend.
I’m thankful to have so very many things to be thankful for when the day is barely half over.
I’m not just living dharma today, I’m living luck.
