Eternally Grateful

"For each new morning with its light,  For rest and shelter of the night,  For health and food,  for love and friends,  For everything Thy goodness sends." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I always start out the same.
Grateful. Oh, so grateful.

I am grateful for a winter without the harsh, cruel snow and frozen landscape that used to reflect an inner reality.

I am grateful for green leaves, fragile but brave flowers, and a gentle breeze that picks and plays with my hair.

I'm grateful for knowledge, wisdom and new ideas to explore.

I'm grateful for beautiful souls and minds that are willing to explore those ideas with me.

I'm grateful for lofty things, but the mundane, as well. I'm grateful for coffee cups that make me smile.

I'm grateful for college bookstores and clearance racks at my favorite clothing store.

I'm grateful for comfortable shoes, and my warm, comforting robe.

I'm grateful for products that make me feel pretty and that smell good.

I'm grate…
