Gratitude Is Heaven

 

“Gratitude is heaven itself.”-William Blake

Ponder gratitude.  Enter into each day with an attitude of gratitude that spills over into every interaction you have.  Do a gratitude dance. What would that look like? I imagine it starting with a wee bit of toe tapping that takes over my legs and from the top of my head that has my hair stand on end, meeting in the middle and building to a “whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on.” 

When I consider all of the people, places and things that bring an appreciative smile to my face, I envision a  royal treasure trove filled to overflowing with shiny gold coins and lush silks.  Each one is valuable beyond measure. Magic surrounds me. Cosmic coincidences give me the giggles. Folks I didn’t know months or years ago are now dear to my heart. What was life like before them?  Hard to imagine.

 

This song by the brilliant musical inspiration Rickie Byars Beckwith, beckons with the perfect invitation to do my gratitude dance. I dare you to stand still while listening:)

Alle-Alleluia

    Doing a gratitude dance is a happy thing. I just posted a u-tume video on facebook about 2 guys you took their gratitude dance around the world. It’s awesome. I’m sure you’ll love it!

The Lifeguard is Off Duty
