Gratitude: A Prayer Meditation

I’m going home for a week on Saturday, and I’m preparing for my trip by selecting two pair of shoes that will go with six different outfits and plow through slush and snow.

I’m also mentally preparing for the changes in my mom that are sure to be evident, and for my ability to join her in “Alzheimer’s World” where nothing makes sense, but where I need to go to truly be with her.

I’m grateful for this time, and on Valentine’s Day, wanted to share a gratitude poem that I love.

Gratitude:  A Prayer Meditation

Source of All Blessings
I am Grateful
for My life
for the Blessings
of
My breath
the beating of My heart

Source of All Blessings
I am Grateful
for Beloved Ones who
share life with me
those in our world beside me
and those in worlds beyond my knowing

Source of All Blessings
I am Grateful
to share life with our Human Family
Jewish, Christian, Muslem, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh
May we walk gently upon our Earth

Source of All Blessings
I am Grateful
to be one with All Creation
the flight of birdwings
the swirling of blueshoals oceans deep
the runnings of wilderness creatures
the sway of forests green

Source of All Blessing
I am Grateful
to be part of the spiraling
of all space and time
beyond my imagination
Yes and again Yes I am grateful
to always be here
where else could I go?
For all this and more
I am Grateful
