I sometimes post this video to Facebook on my birthday. I think I may have blogged it before… but this time I forgot to post it anywhere! Anyway, another birthday has come and gone (about a week ago now), and as ever, I remain deeply grateful to be alive.
What I love about the song is that it richly exposes some of the things that can bring us to new places. For example:
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence
Terror, disillusionment, frailty, consequence and silence are among the many gifts my many years have given me. Where would I be without them? How we love to celebrate strength and victory, but there is a treasure that we can mine if we go deep into the shadowy spaces.
With the song on my mind and gratitude on my heart, with Thanksgiving a few days away, I thought this would be a nice way to begin the week. Thank you for reading and following my blog. Postings have been sparse, but I’m still here. And so are you! Thank you!
“If you only say one prayer in your life let it be ‘Thank you'” Meister Eckhart.
Congratulations on another birthday. Don’t know about you but I have stopped counting now!
Happy belated birthday. Wishing you many more years of being thankful! Celebrate every day!
