Hakarat Hatov: November 1, 2014
For the past few years, I've had a tradition of designating November as Gratitude Month on my blog in preparation for American Thanksgiving, when I display the Gratitude Word Quilt that YOU will help me create!
Throughout the month of November, I will post a photo (or perhaps a few) each day of something that invited me to pause and lifted up gratitude, joy, perhaps a quiver of awe in my heart the moment I stopped to be present and really see. By reviewing the image/images to share with you, the experience is engraved deeper in my consciousness, strengthening a reserve of gratitude and goodness to savor and draw upon when gloomy weather outside echoes inside, or vice versa. For me this is a devotional photographic journey for developing the soul quality of Hakarat Hatov, recognizing the good, a Jewish spiritual practice for cultivating gratitude. I may add writing some days, I may not; I’ll trust my inner compass to guide me.
I will include a link back to each Sunday’s I Heart Macro post so you can participate anytime during the week as usual.
I look forward to receiving your written patches of thanks for this year's 6th Annual GratitudeQuilt!
(Instructions for how to participate can be found at the top of the blog.)
