This morning at beach yoga my teacher, Danell Dwaileebe, read an inspiring poem/prayer as we were in savasana. I forget who wrote it, and I forgot to ask that she email it to me. I was thinking I would post it here today in honor of Thanksgiving. Then I thought, why not write my own prayer of thanksgiving?
Thank You for this gift of another beautiful day. Thank You for all of the abundance and prosperity in my life right now and for all that You send each and every day. Thank You for keeping me safe and strong and healthy. Thank You for showing me the way, for keeping me on my path and for reminding me that everything is perfect, right here, right now. Thank You for blessing my life with my amazing boyfriend, for the love we share and for the incredible life we are building together. Thank You for my eyes that are able to see all the beauty that is right in front of me. Thank You for my ears that are able to hear the birds, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore and the laughter of children. Thank You for my heart that is able to love in spite of the challenges I’ve been through. Thank You for my arms that are able to carry what is necessary and for being able to let go of that which is no longer needed. Thank You for my feet that walk me many miles each day. Thank You for my brain that allows me to continue to learn. Thank You for my nose that is able to smell flowers, pink grapefruit and the ocean. Thank You for my mouth that is able to speak words of love and compassion, for sweet kisses. Thank You for a mind that is open and nonjudgmental, more often that not. Thank You for the good, the not-so-good, the beautiful and the not-so-beautiful. Thank You for laughter and for sadness. Thank You for my life. Thank You, thank You, thank You.
