Hakarat Hatov: Recognizing the Good #20
The ice crystal photos at the top are from the first frost are from a few weeks ago. The three below are from the first snow this past Saturday evening. And it's true, you never know what a furious storm will offer as a gift when life settles again, the winds stop howling and stillness returns so you can breathe a little easier again for a while. The weather inside and out is constantly changing. Learning to be strong and compassionate come from being tossed about and finding your way back to the shelter of feeling safe over and over again; a lifelong process, noticing gratitude and joy along the way. Hakarat Hatov, recognizing there IS goodness in your life no matter what.
If you are looking for the I Heart Macro Week 28 link, it is open here, and will remain open until Wednesday evening… don't worry, you haven't missed it!
Because I think it would be wonderful to have 200 offerings again this year, so I'm extending the opening for entries ONE MORE DAY for the Gratitude Quilt. As of waking and opening my email this morning we are 197 beautiful voices sharing words of thanks.
What are you grateful for in This moment?
Send me a message by midnight tonight, Tuesday, and I'll add it to the quilt. email@example.com Return Thanksgiving morning, Thursday November 28th, here in the United States for a magnificent testament to thankfulness in the midst of tremendous challenges, ordinary life, and wonder filled joy.
