DAY EIGHT: GRATITUDE

A man had all his possessions in a small bag. Nothing else.

He complained of lack, until one day his bag got stolen.

He prayed that his bag be found.

Soon he did find it. He now understood what he had and began to value the little possessions of his.

He spoke aloud

“Thank you God for giving all of these to me.”

As he did everyday, he possessions began to grow and grow……..

The omnipotent creator inside, let me also for a moment thank you for all that I have.

Abundance of food. Abundance of wealth. Abundance of friends

Love and goodness.

Sure, I could do with more.

But today is gratitude day. I reflect upon what all is there . The numerous wishes which have been fulfilled, from the chocolate as a child to a little parking space.

I say a simple thanks.

Yes I have.
