"If we are to lead deep, rich, fulfilling lives that are anchored in what's important, what's precious, what's real, so that our souls can soar, passion must fuel our flight. You may not believe me, but we are meant to wake up every morning exhilarated, with a smile on our face. We're supposed to go to bed at night looking up and saying, 'Thank you, thank you, thank you for the gift of this incredible day.'"
"True passion is intoxicating and invigorating, soothing and sensuous, magical and mystical. I just thought you should know what you're in for."
"Did you know that the Koran, the sacred book of Islam, and the Jewish Talmud teach that we will be called to account for every permissible pleasure life has offered us and that we have refused to enjoy while on earth?"
--selected quotes from Sarah Ban Breathnach's "Something More"
Life is good. So many things to be thankful for everyday. So many things to make us smile. So many relationships that make us feel loved. So many moments that make us feel alive. What are you thankful for today?
I am thankful for:
1. Homemade bread with honey.
2. Reassuring notes.
3. Virtual hugs (through email and blogs!).
5. Fresh berries.
6. Growing my own cherry tomatoes!
7. My dog offering constant companionship and lots of laughs.
8. New birds at my feeder.
9. The doctor's office just telling me to get more rest.
10. A clean house - ready for a guest!
