Life is full of precious gifts

What gifts do pour forth upon each new day
If but we open our hearts to receive them.

Every day is full of amazing gifts. Starting with one new day. Another day on this beautiful planet. The first and greatest gift of all.

Then the sun, trees, daylight! People we meet, projects we are involved in, children, friends, smiles, conversations with shopkeepers, our legs and feet to move us around amongst it all, a good meal, a glass of clean water! A moment to pause. Space to think. Space to stop thinking…

Spring leaves, roadside flowers, gentle rain, birdsong.

A warm shower, a warm hug, a warm smile, a warm fire. A walk to… anywhere!

This breath… the next breath… this moment, and the next…

So many gifts! Every single day!
