I noticed I no longer have any room for wanting things to be different.
Nature especially, including the weather this day,
is so very rich and marvelous,
and beautiful and alive,
that each day I welcome what is
as what is welcomes me as I am.
I am beginning to wonder if I still have a favorite season.
I noticed that I am more grateful than I ever imagined I could be
for this life,
my life as it has been and now is,
and I realize that gratitude has the power to crowd everything else out.
