I am thankful for each new day to learn, to teach, to heal, to discover more of life's beauty in nature and beauty inherrently put in each person by God's design for His entire creation. I appreciate the many gift that God bestows upon each of us and how awesome He has created us to be in the biggest and the smallest of ways. I am astounded by nature and hearing the different sounds, looking at the different areas and climate changes during the winter, spring, summer and fall seasons. I am gratful for inhaling and exhaling and for being able to communicate clearly and articulately. I don't particulary like my wheelchair while I do appreciate the persons who designed it and made them to be an accessible means to life so I don't need to left behind for having lost my full ability to walk due to spinal cord exensive damage. I love how God embraces us and forgives us just because He loves us that much. I am thankful for freedom of speech and for respecting the thoughts, ideas, values, morals and beliefs of every man, woman and child who shares from their hearts and with their best intentions from their thoughts and souls. I enjoy and am grateful for color, for music, for laughter, for family, for friendships, for brethren in Christ and for the delight that wondering, discovering, seeking, searching and learning brings about in similiar and varying ways for each and every one of us. I am thankful, too, for faith, hope and love ~ the essentials in life no matter where one lives, works or plays. Thank you God for a home, a heartbeat, a pulse, eyes to see, a heart to love, ears to listen and compassion to share and understand with others along the way. The list goes on as it's neverending when I give greater indepth thought to the powerful process of gratitude above and beyond mere simplicity to the word gratitude. Again, my top three are gratitude for faith, hope and love no matter where we come from, how are morals, values, faiths, beliefs etc. may differ. The truth of the matter is we are all human and we miss out on not seeing one another's true greatness if we don't factor in having faith, hope and one in one way or another in our lives and respecting how every one of defines same without it being a dividing factor to cause dissension, diffusion and an overall lack of harmoney. What the world needs now more than anything else, in my wholeharted opinion, is to have faith, hope, love, honor and respect toward one another as fellow human beings while respecting our differences and honoring our sameness in whatever paradigms presented before us in our lifetimes. Thanks Joe for this forum and thanks to all of you whom read the words from my thoughts, heart and spirit with every good intention for all good hearted purposes. ~Spiritedhopefulhealing aka Jenn
