As I’m getting ready for my camping trip this weekend, I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I am thankful for many things in my life. To the universe I want to say Thank You for; Seeing the sunrise in the desert, it’s light sparkling on the sand ever so gently. Seeing the sunset on the island of Guam with the sky looking like a beautiful pastel painting over the vast ocean. Seeing the wonder of the Aurora Borealis in Alaska in the night while stars shone in the background. Experiencing the change of the seasons here in Ohio, like the cycle of life, the deep sleep of Winter, the new birth of spring, the fullness and warmth of summer and the winding down of fall.
While I have many material possessions and people in my life I am grateful for, It is the experiences that define my connection to the universe.
