I am grateful for my Dharma teachers being here to teach me how to live and die well, they taught me how to help myself.
This year I am grateful I am alive, healthy and pain-free because 4 years ago I was so sick and tired. I had been sick for a long time before this and I just wanted to lay down and go to sleep forever, I was really tired of being sick and tired. Because of my Dharma teachings I was able to live a good life through all this sickness and fatigue and if I get sick again I am not afraid, I know what to do.
I am grateful to nature, friends, family, children, and our puppy too. Being able to see, smell, touch, feel, have emotions. Walking and moving pain-free. I can bend down and touch my toes, I am so grateful for that! Every time I bend over to pick something up instead of getting a resentment about cleaning up a mess I am so happy to be able to walk and bend over, move my arms and hands without pain.
I can write and paint, I can talk and understand people, that is so amazing and I am so grateful for this ability to communicate!
I am grateful for the sun, the moon, stars and the clouds, they give us life and protect us.
I am grateful for our chickens they are so giving and kind and our garden, the wonder of seeds is amazing.
I am so grateful for people who have taken the time to help me or let me help them.
Technology, this computer, ebooks, books in general, so much wisdom and help they have given me over the years.
I could go on and on but maybe someone else has something to be grateful for too.
