Child: What are we going to do today?
Person: There are dark clouds… looks like there is going to be a lot of rain.
Child: Well, we can jump puddles.
Let the inner child out to play.
Life's events and experiences are like the weather,
they come and go, no matter what our preferences are.
There is a time for every purpose under heaven,
and each season brings its own unique blessing.
Let's give thanks.
There is always a blessing in all life's lessons.
Let's not spend life waiting for the rain to pass…
let's learn to dance in the rain,
to appreciate the moisture that brings a soft curl to our hair,
to dash outside and catch the first snow flakes on our tongues
and relish the icy miracle that is a snowflake;
to wrap a shawl around us, and give thanks for the cool shroud of fog,
the mystery that makes the familiar seem different and intreaging;
to gratefully turn up our faces to the sunshine
and feels its warmth on our cheeks.
Gratitude is the foundation of all abundance.
The depth of our gratitude and blessings
depends upon the amount of gratitude we offer to the world.
