Thanksgiving Blessing

You have given so much to me
Give one thing more--a grateful heart:
Not thankful when it pleases me,
As if your blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be
Your Praise alone.
--George Herbert
Wishing you peace in every moment, joy in every beauty, and love in every breath.


"Everything on earth is being continuously transformed, because the earth is alive ... and it has a soul. We are part of that soul, so we rarely recognize that it is working for us."

--Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

I didn't think The Alchemist was a particularly well-written or engaging book, but I do like this sentiment, that we are all connected to and part of a universal soul.
