I start most wedding ceremonies with these words: You have been given a gift; you only need to see it to believe it.
Today I have the gift of sunshine, the gift of hanging laundry on the line, the gift of a great walk and the gift of a memory of a great discussion on Peace and Gratitude from last night.
How lucky am I?
Now look at the magnificent gift that greeted me when I went into the yard. I have not planted a single one of those happy poppies. The forget-me-nots do not come back every year, and this year there is not a one in the yard. But there are poppies everywhere.
I am grateful for this gift and bathe in their sunny disposition. By being mindful and seeing the gift, I find contentment.
What do you see? How do you find contentment?
