I was waiting in line to pay for my groceries while maintaining my 6ft distance.

When this man cut in front of me.

He didn’t appear to notice me

I didn’t say anything maintained my distance.

When it was time for him to pay he reached in his back pocket and pulled out a small notepad.

He forgets his wallet.

He looked a bit disappointed and embarrassed.

I stepped up and told the cashier I would take care of his groceries.

(Which consisted of Milk and Chocolate Chip Cookies)

He was more than grateful.

He thanked me and off he went.

The cashier tells me.

“He cut you off and you paid for his groceries.


“I said, I hope that if one day my Dad forgets his wallet someone will step up and buy his Milk and Cookies”

With all the negativity going on in the world.

I thought it would be nice to share this moment.


God needs you to understand πŸ˜”

On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know

That life was meant to be FUN! It’s hard to believe
sometimes, but it’s true. It’s all about point of view.

Even our most difficult moments bring us gifts.

And so life may call upon us to be a bit “philosophical” now and then; to embrace the “lows” with the “highs.”

The trick, of course, is gratitude.

Therein will you find both your peace and your joy?


Being Truly Thankful

Our gratitude deepens when we begin to be thankful for being alive and living the life we are living.
Often when we practice being thankful, we go through the process of counting our blessings, acknowledging the wonderful people, things and places that make up our reality. While it is fine to be grateful for the good fortune we have accumulated, true thankfulness stems from a powerful comprehension of the gift of simply being alive, and when we feel it, we feel it regardless of our circumstances. In this deep state of gratitude, we recognize the purity of the experience of being, in and of itself, and our thankfulness is part and parcel of our awareness that we are one with this great mystery that is life.

It is difficult for most of us to access this level of consciousness as we are very caught up in the ups and downs of our individual experiences in the world. The thing to remember about the world, though, is that it ebbs and flows, expands and contracts, gives and takes, and is by its very nature somewhat unreliable. If we only feel gratitude when it serves our desires, this is not true thankfulness. No one is exempt from the twists and turns of fate, which may, at any time, take the possessions, situations, and people we love away from us. Ironically, it is sometimes this kind of loss that awakens us to a thankfulness that goes deeper than just being grateful when things go our way. Illness and near-miss accidents can also serve as wake-up calls to the deeper realization that we are truly lucky to be alive.

We do not have to wait to be shaken to experience this state of being truly thankful for our lives. Tuning in to our breath and making an effort to be fully present for a set period of time each day can do wonders for our ability to connect with true gratitude. We can also awaken ourselves with the intention to be more aware of the unconditional generosity of the life force that flows through us regardless of our circumstances.


Gratitude ~

Think carefully before making any offers, commitments, or promises, no matter how seemingly trivial.

These are all contracts and must be honored. These also include self-resolutions

Always show gratitude when earned, monetarily when possible.
