1000 Gifts

I am currently reading a book about recognizing blessings. It is really making me think about living in the moment. How many small, yet wonderful, everyday gifts do we let pass us by?
…. the sun rising or setting against a sky melting with color, the smell of a freshly opened bag of coffee, a seed growing, a vine weaving in and out with a mind of its own, the smell of the air after a good rain, a bird’s nest, a great song playing at the right time, a dog sleeping….
“For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,

Father in heaven, we thank Thee!”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
