Great to read all the responses...I'm coming on the end of this wonderful time of remembrance and gratitude --- with so many things happening all around us, this Thanksgiving "being GRATEFUL" for so many blessings seemed so present. The many serving on our behalf...those scared and worried...so much need everywhere. Being safe my greatest Gift for which I remain forever grateful.
I read a quote from the mystic poet, RUMI, which I had not read before. It seems to help us RE-THINK our STRUGGLES and EASE --- our JOYS and TRIALS --- and... It seems to give purpose and perspective to so many things in our lives:
"God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of OPPOSITES...so that you will have two wings to fly, not one."
TODAY --- the finale of the holiday arrived. An unexpected 70 degree day with a lite breeze. Blessings flow...Coast Trail near SF --- Debbe
