"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful." ~ Buddha
It would be so easy to give into the fear, into the worry, into the "bad" stuff. God knows, there are enough choices of bad stuff to choose from if that is where you want to go ! But to rise up and be thankful in the face of all that, that is where it takes real courage and real strength. Trisha at Boffo Panda has real courage and real strength and shows it. So many other powerful women and men I know, in BlogLand, and in my own tighter circle have it and show it.
I am going to summon all my strength and courage today and show it. I am going to rise up and find the beauty and love in this hurt world today and celebrate it and be oh so very very thankful for it.
It will take strength and it will take courage, but guess what ?
I have it in me.
And know what else ?
You have it in you too.
Talk about things to be thankful for....
