“The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.”Jon Kabat-Zinn
What does it mean to live each day with the recognition that the little things and the little moments aren’t actually little? How can we nurture a relationship to life that honors its subtleties?
If you’ve spent any time at all with us on our website, these sorts of questions may not be new to you, nor are they new to us. And yet, we find ourselves delightfully drawn again and again to such inquiry. This engagement continually reveals new possibilities, insights, and depths and reminds us about what matters.
In the spirit of such grateful inquiry, we invite you to join us for an 8-day practice as we seek inspiration in the words of wise others and engage with questions that challenge our habitual ways of seeing and being in the world.
This practice is inspired by the release of our first book: Everyday Gratitude: Inspiration for Living Life as a Gift.
We hope that you will be able to join us for our practice of Everyday Gratitude, and we leave you with a page from the inspiration for this practice:

I am so grateful for each of you! Be blessed!
I am so thrilled and blessed to have found this site. Thank-you Katie, Kristi, Jeseph, Rose & Saoirse and all who work together to make this Gratefulness Team and site such an enriching spiritual space to visit. Yesterday, I took a beautiful walk in the snow, perhaps the last squal of this winter. I was reminded how there is beauty in all the seasons of life. I had parked my car by the side of the country road. An indigenous woman put on her parka, and walked out to my car, leaving her warm shelter, to make sure that no one was stranded there. This was a big moment to me. Blessings pour down in abundance. The more I notice, the more they seem to appear. Of course, they are always happening. It is just so good to notice. There are no small moments, and no small blessings.
Dear Jim, thank-you for sharing your reflection, it is just beautiful!!! Life is such a precious gift!!!
Many blessings to you?
Thank-you for your reply Sheila. It was an unexpected blessing to read. I receive all of those blessings you wished, and I wish and pray many for you in good return. Thank-you for attaching the little monarch butterfly. It cheered my heart. Shalom/peace/wholeness. Jim FP
