Thanksgiving Day. "Gan An Jie" in Chin.ese. ("with peace holiday").
But for me it's a day to take stock. What is important? What are the daily ways I am blessed and can be a blessing to others? I need to name the things I am thankful for. (we all do). And I need to live like I believe that I have things to be thankful for. Workin' on this.
I was contemplating these things, saying some prayers, and focusing myself on counting my blessings when I recieved a timely text...
I open my wallet and find no money
I open my pocket and find no coin
I open my life, find you,
then know how rich I am.
Happy Thanksgiving, Jassica, my friend.
from one of my students from last year at HDU.
Happy Thanksgiving from Chi.na. There is so much to be thankful for.
walk slow. xoxo.
