No matter how much gratitude we already express in our lives, there is always still room to grow it. Gratitude is a form of love, and love is infinite. Gratitude affirms our belief in a good and abundant universe.
With our gratitude for other people. we build bridges of love and acceptance. When we look around at our own environments and are thankful for what we have, we open the magic doorway for more to come to us.
When you think “I am grateful for”, what is the first thing that pops into your mind right in this moment? Big or small, it is all important within the context of gratitude.
I am so grateful that our black Bombay cat, who was lost much of this past week, came home on Friday. His absence made me very aware of what a big heart center he is in our home. He is a rescue cat who we adopted just before COVID struck, and he has really helped us through this difficult time. I do believe he arrived in our lives to make being cooped up more bearable. After last week’s absence, never again will I feel resentful of his (sometimes as early as) 5 a.m. wake-up call yowling!
P.S. I was emphatically informed that although I had permission to share my little story, as he does not do public appearances, I would have to use a body double photo. That’s a bit confusing to me, as isn’t temporarily running away from home “making a public appearance”? Anyway, anyone who has a cat in their life will understand completely. 😉
