Reasons for Gratitude

19 Jul 2017 life

There are always reasons
for gratitude,
though they may not always
be easy to find.

In the worst of times,
there is at least this breath,
this moment of life,
and an ever-present promise
of change:
“This, too, shall pass!”,
as the saying goes.

And there are other times,
when joy does not leap
out at us;
when we can look out
past our thoughts
and preconceptions,
and find something,
somewhere,
beyond our usual seeing,
to re-inspire
the joy of simply being.
