…today…
it’s given to us,
…it’s a gift…
it’s the only gift we have right now…
and the only appropriate response is gratefulness

“Friday Wishes”

Some of my very favorite “pages,” on the entire Pocket Perspectives blog… with words from the  inspiring, heart warming video “A Good Day”  (posted below) by Benedictine monk, Brother David Steindl-Rast… part of the wonderful website Gratefulness.org, and also presented within the TED video “Gratitude”  (also posted below)

“I wish that you would open your hearts to all these blessings”

~
“Friday Wishes”
opening our hearts to this precious “view”
… to “view” our many blessings…
and to share our blessings with each other


a wish for today
a wish for each and every day
a wish for us all

 Listening with open hearts
to the deep tenderness and love in Br. David Steindl-Rast’s  words and voice,
as he touches our hearts
with these words of love, appreciation, gratitude and inspiration….

Perhaps, pause for  a few minutes?…and offer yourself a special gift?
viewing this short, WONDERFUL video
“viewing” with open and loving eyes, ears, hearts and minds…
I think you’ll find it very special and inspiring!

The video…“Gratitude”
the same Br. Steindl-Rast section begins at 4:44 into the video

May we open our hearts,
and “view” the bountiful blessings around us each and every day.

gratitude this day is a gift Brother Steindl-Rast

~

May we be  filled with gratitude for the kind, loving, generous and supportive people we have in our lives.
May the love and kindness we offer to each other be received and increasingly enrich the lives of those around us.
May we deeply appreciate the the bountiful and generous “gifts” that we offer to each other, as we live the “gift” of this precious day.

May we let our gratefulness overflow into blessings all around us….
and then this will be a very good day!
