Thankful - Day 6

"If The Only Prayer You Say In Your Entire Life Is - 'Thank You' - That Is Enough"
Meister Eckhart 1260-1328
Christian Writer and Theologian

This morning when I wet to pick up my Sunday paper outside, it was all wet from the coastal fog. So quiet, just the birds making noise. Everything was covered in little diamond drops. It was magical.

I sat out front in my rocking chair and it was so peaceful. I don't know how other people do it. I have to have some moments of total silence to think. Too many days can go by with noise, hustle bustle, things to be done, appointments, duties and errands. Before you know it, the time right after waking up in the morning and the time right before bed are the only times in the day left to myself.

Mornings like today help remind me how Thankful I am for QUIET SOLITUDE. And that I need to make more time to rest, meditate and give thanks.
