Some days magic happens!

Yesterday morning while we were were swimming at Greenmount Beach we saw a perfect rainbow stretching from the sea to the land, a magnificent, perfect rainbow.

A smiling young woman swimming near us said “Aren’t we lucky?!” I know we are.

I then thought all of the ways in which I am blessed and how much I have to be grateful for.

Sometimes I forget to give thanks for all the blessings I have.

Often it’s the simple things I need to be grateful for.

  • the magic when I get up at dawn to watch a sunrise
  • the sun shining, I love the warmth on my back as I walk on the beach
  • the sound of the sea
  • my wonderful camera that captures the beauty of nature ( yesterday being the one morning I didn’t have the camera to capture the magic!)
  • the peacefullness of where I live
  • the magic colour of the sea and trees by the river
  • pelicans soaring over the water
  • birds singing at dawn ( I can hear them now)
  • the wonderful fresh mango I will have for breakfast
  • the abundance of farm fresh food we have from the local farmers
  • wonderful friends
  • the way I can be connected with friends and colleagues around the world by the internet, barriers of time and distance obliterated
  • my shelves of books to read and inspire
  • the garden I look out onto as I sit here writing
  • the wonderful world of art
  • the magic of the setting sun
  • the telephone which I take for granted
  • having a wonderful loving partner

There is so much to give thanks for, what will you give thanks for today? Please leave your list in the comments.
