The greatest gift one can give is thanksgiving. In giving gifts, we give what we can spare, but in giving thanks, we give ourselves.

– Br. David Steindl-Rast

Enjoy this beautiful reminder of the gifts we receive every day.

    • Thank you, dear Carol. Itโ€™s not lost on me that this holiday is more bitter than sweet for our Native American brothers and sisters…and I am grateful for their peace and grace in the face of all of the traumas and indignities they have suffered at the hands of the white patriarchy for too many years. I choose to focus on the holiday as a reminder of the importance of gratitude and the inherent grace within this practice. Thank you. โค๏ธโ˜ฎ๏ธ

  1. Thank YOU, Carrie, for thought-provoking, breath-of-fresh-air, posts. There is a peacefulness here at your blog home that I really enjoy and find needed in this day and age.

    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. โค

    • Thank you, Anita. And, I agree with you. Im reminded of this quote by Meister Eckhart: “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” ๐Ÿ™โ€‹
