I want to post something simple today.
Thanks and gratitude for my life.
This is a simple post in many ways, but I want to share, I begin…
I give thanks for the ability to receive love.
I give thanks for the ability to understand love.
I give thanks, for each part of my body, my mortal shell, that operates at its best efficiency.
I give thanks, for the numerous markets near me, to pick and choose, what shall land on my family’s plate.
I give thanks, that I can share my earnings to other family, beyond my immediate circle.
I give thanks, for the state of mind, that allows me to keep earning.
I give thanks for the ability to walk out the door, go to a store, and buy essentials that make my life easier.
I give thanks for the ability to smile in the face of adverse circumstances.
I give thanks to remember that I smiled in just such circumstances.
I give thanks for the ability to use my fingers to play across this keyboard.
I give thanks that I can stand, sit, dwell, hear and ask to pray for those that are without hope.
I give thanks that I live and was born within a county that does not stone people for adultery.
I give thanks that I can stop here and ask all of you to use the power of word and the power of prayer to hope, that only God, and not practicing mortals, decides the fate of the nine in Iran sentenced to die by stoning for alleged adultery.
I give thanks that I have the courage to ask you to stop what you are doing and send a positive prayer to the universe to save those people, our brother and sisters.
I give thanks that someday we become united again, outside the dictates of society.
I give thanks that you took a moment of your day to stop in.
Peace to you.
