This week is a celebration of family. It is a celebration of bounty. Of the bountifulness of humanity in the United States. And, you know, hopefully in other countries that they have a celebration where they bring the harvest home. Where they bring the family together to honor our differences and our similarities.
Thankful for Family
You know, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the last few weeks – before my mother passed – with family, because they, my brothers, would come in and out to see what they could take care of, especially when I was out of town. And I’ve learned to honor and respect each of them, in their own way.
Even though I have to admit I was changing my bracelet. I was changing my bracelet. Because I would think, “This is making me crazy.” I just wanted to shake them sometimes. But they’re your family. So of course they’re gonna push your buttons and trigger everything that you ever need to trigger. They volunteered to help you evolve, which is why they’re here. And you volunteered to help them evolve which is why you’re here.
Appreciate your family
So this week, you know, just appreciate your family. Appreciate the wonderousness and the differences of all of them. Even if your family is not around you. Think of them and feel them, and know that they may have been horrible and mean and destructive and abusive to you. But what are the good things that came out of that?
They may have been like my parents, who were wonderful parents. What were the good things that came out of that and what did I learn? And how can I be of service given the roots that I was given? That’s what it’s all about.
How can you be of service given the roots that you were given? Well, how can you help? So in this week of harvest in the United States, this week of gratefulness and gratitude and thankfulness, just relax and appreciate every aspect of it. To know that as you give thanks that reverberates out around you, so others can give thanks too.
We love to hear from you! Please leave your comment below!
