A Grateful Heart

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Pause for a moment and think about the beautiful & tender heart…beating strong, pumping energy into the human body. Incredibly powerful, rhythmic and super sensing this heart of ours is … it beats fast with feelings of excitement, it flutters with feelings of love, it pains with feelings of hurt, it pounds with feelings of anger, it warms with feelings of happiness….it is packed full of accomplishments as well as lessons learned. And when we fill our heart with gratitude for all of these experiences, even the painful ones, it grows and fills with more and more joy. And that joy from that gratitude…well, it is felt by others and it is contagious!

I have learned to be good to my heart, as this lifeline is strong, yet fragile. I have learned to honor my heart, allowing it to feel and heal when it hurts, embrace and share when it joys. This delicate dance will be performed over and over again in a lifetime… that is how resilient this beautiful, tender and strong organ of ours is. The heart was so brilliantly named & identifies as the symbol of love. Love, the most powerful of emotions, flows out into the world through our actions, magnified by our gratitude.

My heart is full…grateful for the incredible blessings in my life…my beautiful family, my dear friends, the sweet nature all around, the challenges experienced, the life adventures & people I have met along the way and the list goes on! I am grateful for this place to share my thoughts and thankful for you, the beautiful human who took the time to visit here! I wish you all a Happy and Joy-Filled Thanksgiving! With love, from my grateful heart…today, forever and always!


♥️My wish came true… I met the beautiful human who placed the first heart rock under the little tree on one of my favorite hikes. I will share more on this incredible meeting of ours but for now, my heart is glowing from this amazing experience!
