I Am Thankful...

Dear Friends, 
"We are travelers in a cosmic journey - star dust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. But the expressions of life are ephemeral, momentary, transient. Buddha once said "This existence of the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance. A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky." We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment, but it is transient. It is a little parenthesis in eternity. If we share with caring, light heartedness and love, we will create abundance and joy for each other. And then this moment will have been worthwhile." ~Deepak Chopra

 Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, because gratitude has been so transformative in my life. It’s brought me into awareness of the beauty and fragility of life, so that each moment I choose to be aware is such a poignant and exquisite experience of the precious nature of everyone and every thing.

Thank you for being part of my life. Each one of you has enriched my experience in ways that only you can do, for each one of us has a beautiful thread that weaves together into the tapestry of life.

I am honored and blessed to be here in this life with you!
