Living with Gratitude

Posted on March 6, 2018 at 2:35 AM

Dear Readers,


As I was driving back to Nevada City today…looking at the mountains with AWE, gratitude came to mind.

I did have such gratitude for the gorgeous countryside I was driving through. Hugh mountains…spotted with snow, with the lake below, partly frozen over. I love our Mother Earth. And during this trip to the Reno area in Nevada I fell in love with the country side for the first time. I saw it in an entirely new way during this visit.

As I was entering the area last week…driving south from Reno into the Washoe Valley, the landscape was breath-taking. The valley was vast and wide-spread, surrounded by mountain peak after mountain peak, all covered in snow. I was in awe as I drove down into the spacious country side. I enjoy relating to our Mother Earth in a personal way. So, on this drive, what I saw was countryside, wide-open, vast, with great spaciousness…like a playground to explore and grow in. The land was fairly barren, open for planting and creating within with high mountain tops, to climb. There is so much to be grateful for.

I was reminded that years ago, a minister friend of mine, suggested to us studying with her to write down three things we are grateful for at the end of each day. I found this practice to be so inspiring. It allowed me to really honor the little things in each day that I was grateful for.

These are my three gratitudes for today:

1. I’m grateful for the gorgeous countryside on Mother Earth.

2. I’m grateful for the daily opportunity to learn and grow and for deeper self-understanding.

3. I’m grateful for the warmth of my home, even when it’s 36 degrees outside, the inside in warm and welcoming.


So, I invite you to consider such a practice.

What are YOU grateful for TODAY?


Wishing you a day of seeing life in a new way!

Love, sharon
