Gratitude Continued…


Part of the expansiveness of Gratitude is to accept all that has occurred in one’s experience of Life. There are the dark moments as well as the uplifting ones. All teach us something.

As I get ready to leave Uruguay in a few days, I am grateful for the well spring of kindness that I have received. There have been misunderstandings as well which have made me feel sorrow. However, it is encouraging to remember that all challenge may present positive outcomes if we take the opportunity to reflect on each and every lesson.

I’m grateful that I may continue to have an open attitude toward my own learning. Experience is quite personal and meaning for me continues to come from relationships of inclusion rather than blame.

On this Christmas Day I send out to the Universe and All My Relations thoughts of peace and love. I am full.


“For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel looking, looking, breathlessly.”

Don Juan Matus

This is exactly how I feel on this new moon of 2015. All too soon, I will be returning to my home in the United States. I am mesmerized by the encounters that I have had. How was it that All My Relations so loved me to grace me with these beautiful memories? I know I have worked long and hard to get my Medicine Wheel spinning in a good direction. Here, in Uruguay, I have been blessed with the bounty.

I am full.

Giving Thanks for the Truth

Gives Praise, this month’s Grandmother moon, is generative. Her color is the regal purple. She inspires because she is able to see the beauty in everything and everyone. She is attentive to the present because she is grateful for all the lessons, good and painful, of the past. She teaches that simple shifts in perception may lead to miraculous outcomes.

She is my role model.
