A Thanksgiving Meditation

November 23rd, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments


My best friend, Nancy, made this beautiful arrangement. She’s been studying Japanese flower arranging. So in this busy season, I thought I’d share it along with a short paragraph from Joan Chittister’s book, “The Gift of Years.” They go beautifully together:

“A blessing of these years is the invitation to go lightfooted into the here and now–because we spend far too much of life preparing for the future rather than enjoying the present.”

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones, Jean. Happy Thanksgiving to your friend Nancy too. The arrangement is so lovely. I just started learning the Japanese art of Furoshiki. I may add their flower arranging to my list too.
    Be well,
