Word spread through the deer community, and we eventually kept a big bowl of sliced carrots to toss out to an ever-increasing herd. One deer kept coming closer until she looked into my eyes and took a carrot from my hand. Wow! I felt sheer joy in that moment of connection and trust.

The Art of Gratitude

Affirmation: I am gratefully and wonderfully blessed!

There is an art to gratitude. There is a form, structure, a knack for growing it, developing it, and subsequently owning it as a way of life. But why does it matter? Why grow gratitude? Why spend the time developing it? Aren’t there other fun, uplifting, exciting things to do with one’s time?
