The blessings of every day life floated blissfully through my mind, keeping tempo with each stride I took.

The air I breathe
The love I feel
The health to run
The bounty of work
The power of friendship
The peace of relationship
The endless opportunities
The beauty of true love
The acceptance of family for hanging-in forever through thick and thin

Last week I was reminded of Albert Einstein’s reflection on miracles. He said you could see life as if nothing is a miracle or life as if everything is a miracle.

To see life as a miracle is to see it with wonder. And then naturally you see an expanded view that includes more than you know of current conditions or people. You blink away the veil of attachment to a particular point of view that may be keeping you cranky or separate in your thoughts, words, or actions.

With an attitude of gratitude, I can smile at life’s twists and turns that have brought me where I am today. Rain falls. Sun shines. And everything in between.

The more I see life as a miracle, the more I realize that the blessings already are. Just waiting to be noticed. And, it only takes a slight turn in their direction to be filled with unexpected moments of wonder.
Join me this week and let gratitude, miracles, and blessings guide the way we communicate, interact, and cook! Have a wonderful thanksgiving.

My love goes with you as you work with this Uplifting Moment.
