Grateful

I am grateful for friends, both new and old, who see me exactly where and when I am and accept me this way. I am grateful for the time spent laughing, and dancing, and singing, and crying.

I am grateful for cool Autumn breezes before the season has turned.

I am grateful for music, for touch, for music touching my soul.

I am grateful for feline companions who adore me without measure.

I am grateful for extra layers when the sun goes down, and handmade quilts when the lights go out.

I am grateful for boundaries, for limits, and for respecting them.

I am grateful for connection.

I am grateful for good food, for meals spent with friends, for dinner parties (of 1 or 25).

I am grateful for honesty. For respect. For trust.

I am grateful for trust.

I am grateful for sacred fire, for burning that which does not serve us, for setting alight the dreams we hold near, for blazing our unique paths.

I am grateful for gratitude.
