Day 2917: Gifts

During a holiday season when we are not exchanging any material gifts, gifts still abound.

I especially appreciate these gifts:

  • New leadership for the USA.
  • Hope.
  • Health.
  • A home near the shore.
  • Family.
  • Friends.
  • Faith in myself and in others I trust.
  • My work as a group therapist.
  • Time off.
  • Time.
  • Awareness.
  • Acceptance.
  • Thoughtfulness.
  • Joy.
  • All the feelings.
  • Nourishment.
  • Patience.
  • Eagerness.
  • Curiosity.
  • Spontaneity.
  • Practice.
  • Stillness.
  • Movement.
  • Music.
  • Laughs.
  • Love.
  • Living.

What gifts do you most appreciate, here and now?

Do you see gifts in today’s images?

I also appreciate the gifts of others.

The gifted blogger Maria left this gift in yesterday’s post, which I am happy to re-gift to you:

As usual, I end with the gift of gratitude, so thanks to you and all the gifts you bring.
