GRATITUDE AT TWILIGHT

PEACEFUL EVENING
It would not be a particularly illuminating read for you
if I enumerated all of the reasons I am grateful.
Suffice it to say I try to live in a 
state of gratitude.
I worked on a story years ago and got to 
know an elderly gentleman who had one 
of the brightest and cheeriest dispositions I've 
encountered.  A widow by then, he said frequently
how fortunate he had been. It was a kind of 
mantra in his life.  It reminded him of
all those touchstone moments he had lived
and brought the joy of them forward again,
in gratitude.
A theologian friend put it another way
he said "after you have seen the throne of grace
all you can do is to give gratitude."
Today Seth Borenstein of the Associated Press
wrote how giving thanks makes you happier.
The evening light of the Central Coast
and the time to capture it is certainly
a reason to say Thanks.
These "specks" are crows, enjoying the evening ride.







Thanks for visiting this blog.
See you down the trail.
