While dealing with the every day requirements of sheltering in place during the covid19 threat, lately I have come to realize how, for myself, I find I have much to be grateful for. An attitude of gratitude helps me to tip the proverbial glass from almost empty to somewhat full.
I am grateful for my current state of good health, knowing that for all of us, that is not to be taken for granted. My state of health allows me to be here for my home family of Sophie (my Shorkie dog), and Emily, my cat, who depend upon me for their own wellbeing.
I am grateful for my family and friends and for keeping in contact with them day by day.
I am grateful for Love. I perceive Love to be the very fabric of the universe that connects all to one another in all planes of Being and to the Divine, always. Whatever happens, Love is here and now. Fear can cast a shadow over our perception of Love but if we can remember to turn our hearts to give and to receive divine love, the light can shine through to dispel the shadows.
I heard a doctor quote from Mr. Rogers the other day: “In times of darkness there are always the Helpers.” I am grateful for the Helpers, whether health care professionals, compassionate politicians, neighbors and friends, and service workers who deliver supplies and services to those quarantined or staying home. So quickly have these Helpers become mobilized to serve others in ways unprecedented on the planet Earth.

What are you most grateful for today? If this question has become a difficult one for you to consider or to answer because your circumstances may seem anything but fortunate right now, of course I honor your feelings and you are entitled to be where you are at. Whatever you are experiencing may divine love reach you, bringing some comfort to you and your loved ones.
May the Blessings Be!
