We take so much for granted, each day. I realize this especially during moments of presence and clarity, usually when I pause. Or when something happens in our life to awaken us, again.

I'm reminded of this again now as I'm recuperating from the flu. How easily I take for granted the simple acts of breathing, moving, and just 'doing' with ease and energy. It makes me appreciate the unseen things more that swirl in our lives.

I am so often grateful for my beloved husband Alan. And very much so now.  He is such a watchful and careful help to me, as he juggles his many roles and tasks. I appreciate him dearly.

He learned this well from his parents. His dad was an amazing role model of a man, husband and father. I appreciate their wisdoms and role modeling.

What do you take for granted? What are you appreciating?
