Just for Today, I Will Be Grateful

Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Continuing on my series on Reiki and children, we come to the third principle. Be Grateful.

I don't know about yours but my children seem to be growing up faster and faster. I'm waiting for the day that as I watch them play, they grow a foot in a matter of seconds. It seems that in just a few years, they are going to be grown and having children of their own. (For reference they are 6 and 10).

Yes, I know that this sounds facetious but if you are a parent, then you probably know what I am talking about. The world around us is speeding up as well and we are definitely not getting any younger.

While I know that it is difficult with all of the stress in our lives but we do need to take time to be grateful for the blessings we have received in our lives, especially our children. Because, like I have pointed out, they will be grown and apart from us before we can blink.

I'm not going to go into any lists on how to be grateful, because I think we know how to do that. I just wanted to remind you to take some time out to do just that. Light a candle and sit for a moment, strike up a conversation with the Deity(ies) that you follow and say thanks. Then make sure to let your kids know how much you appreciate them.

Hope your week is going well, Blessed Be!
