Dearest Loved Ones,
I've bee thinking about how grateful I am on this Long Weekend here in Canada celebrating Thanksgiving.
And I've been thinking about how much my life has changed over the last few years, from struggling to make peace with the changes in my life and to fully embrace the beauty of my future.
I used to lay in bed worrying about L.I.F.E. and wondering if I was making the right choices ~ for me and mine. For me and you. For me and my beloved fur babies and feathered baby.
I spent much time in prayer and practicing my gratitudes, like counting sheep, focussing on what I WAS grateful for looking around my room thinking, gee, I am grateful for this bed, for, Jack, For Chuk, for this roof over my head, for my family, my friends.
And I recently read about Dr. Emmons and Michael McCullough's seminal research where they showed that the practice of gratitude especially at night helped achieve a better night's rest.
So on this Thanksgiving Weekend, I am counting my blessings, feeling blessed and loved.
May you all rest well and find your deeply healing beauty rest,
So much love,
Cydney, Chuk & Jack
