Down On Your Knees.
Day 13 — Book Writing/Birthday Month
To give thanks.
I am good at saying thank you.
I still write thank you notes
My Mother and both Grandmothers
But to get down on ones knees
And truly pray
Has eluded me for a while.
It’s now part of my morning practice.
It doesn’t take that long.
And it’s less about what I want
Or need but what
To celebrate and what I am grateful for.
Those to thank
Those to send out some extra goodness
I like to think that when I think
Of you that you feel it somehow.
A sign or something you like
Appears or someone else
In the world is polite or kind to you.
I love the Free Guided Meditations from UCLA
Out of this set of meditations
The loving kindness is my favorite
I usually do a couple of these as 20 minutes
To start my day feels right.
Or a quick 9 min when I’m feeling blocked
Or need to clear my head.
After the mediation.
On my knees.
I give thanks
And so much love.
The way you start the day
Ever held your breathe underwater?
Thank you Rachel for so many things
But for reminding me that prayer.
You too Dad.
So many lightning bugs in my life.
Thank you for your spark.
My new year is approaching
And I am thankful
To be summiting to another one.
Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
