I’ve been down in the dumps the last few days. Hey, it happens right? Not everyday can be tea and roses. Shitty things happen all day everywhere. It can knock you off your chair and hurl you to the ground with a thud. Lying down there on the ground can feel cold, lonely and devoid of hope…
…but even the ground has something to teach us. The ground is where our nourishment grows. It provides a host for beautiful things, like trees, flowers and foliage. The ground keeps us steady and balanced.
And the sun provides the warmth.
If I have nothing else to feel grateful for, I’m grateful for that… and this will lead me to be grateful for a host of other good things in my life.
The earth and gratitude spell out hope for a better day today.
