Gratitude....

Let us take the threads of our gratitude & weave them into a blanket to wrap around the whole world. Whenever we feel the need we can pull it closer & snuggle into the healing protective layer…  be soothed by the blessings & thankfulness of kindred spirits… we can breathe in the scent of love infused into the fabric that we have woven together. Know that you can pull it closer at any time to protect against the chill of loss, pain, separation, illness, fear, loneliness, doubt or anything else that may be troubling you… All you ever need to do is pull that blanket closer to feel our arms around you, comforting & helping you to feel the warmth & brightness of your own inner light. 

Perhaps when your world seems to be collapsing around you, the last thing you want to hear is someone telling you to "look on the bright side". My darkest times may not compare to what many people have to contend with, but something my dad told me has always stuck with me "You've got to look for the things that are right, suzi, not the things that are wrong.... be thankful for what you have got, not the things you havn't"

One person who is a shining example of this outlook is Laura, over at Shine the Divine.... while you are there, look at her post on November 17- Calling All Angels. Laura was worried that due to her health she may struggle to write a Thanksgiving post (Nov 26 in the USA) so she had the idea of asking people to contribute their thoughts of what they are grateful for... the idea sort of grew... why not get as many people around the blogosphere to roll out the idea, collecting comments of gratitude & thankfulness all around the world... creating a giant patchwork quilt for Thanksgiving... so what if it isn't celebrated everywhere... any day can be a day to share, so why not this one... this is part of her message... please go over & read it all

..."So now I am asking all of you on my blog roll to consider joining in to make this a worldwide BLOGGING GRATITUDE EVENT...I LIKE THE IDEA OF MOBIUS...BECAUSE IT NEVER ENDS...LIKE LOVE...I LIKE THE IDEA OF QUILT BECAUSE IT'S A PATCHWORK OF COLORS AND WORDS STITCHED TOGETHER...AGAIN WITH LOVE... A BLANKET OF GRATITUDE TO WRAP AROUND THE WORLD!...
...So below you can read the simple message I put out...my REQUEST TO YOU, IF YOU SHOULD CHOOSE TO ACCEPT THIS LOFTY ASSIGNMENT, IS TO COLLECT A TON OF GRATITUDE QUOTES FROM YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, COLLEAGUES...AND THEN FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO YOUR BLOG BUDDIES...SO THIS WILL GROW AND GROW AND GROW INTO A WORLD WIDE EVENT. I AM VERY SICK RIGHT NOW...THERE IS NOT A WHOLE LOT I CAN DO PHYSICALLY TO DO TIKKUN OLAM (REPAIR THE WORLD) BUT THIS IS ONE THING I CAN DO...PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS AND MAKE THIS THE MOST AMAZING BLOGGING EFFORT TO WAKE EVERYBODY UP TO THE BLESSINGS THAT ABOUND IN THEIR LIVES...IT IS TOO EASY TO GET CAUGHT UP IN THE DETAILS OF OUR LIVES ...WE NEED SOMETIMES TO BE REMINDED OF HOW WONDERFUL OUR LIVES TRULY ARE. IF THIS FEELS TOO BIG, TOO OVERWHELMING ...FORGET ABOUT IT...THAT IS NOT MY INTENTION FOR ANYONE...BUT IF IT FEELS LIKE A GOOD HEALTHY CHOICE FOR YOU...THEN PLEASE JOIN ME IN THIS QUEST FOR MORE GRATITUDE, MORE JOY, MORE AWARENESS OF THE GOODNESS INFUSED IN THE WORLD!"...

OMG Suzi! This is so awesome, I don't know what to say besides, um...THANK YOU! Right now I have over 100 responses...perhaps the longest blog entry in internet history????

Your support means so much to me, my dear friend who I have never even met "in person"...but we know how energy travels and distance is of no consequence, so we have visited many times in our own way.
