A Good Day To Be Grateful

As practitioners of the Law of Attraction know, manifesting is much easier in a positive and grateful environment. As readers of The Prophet Within know, I have had challenges in this arena of late. Today was not one of those days. Today I am left feeling positive, thankful and hopeful of what is to come.

I am grateful for, for example, helping my daughter solve some of her travel logistics problems. She's coming back from visiting her Marine boyfriend and the flight caused a few challenges. Nothing major, but she thought of me to help her get through it. It gives me a warm feeling to realize that even though she is an adult, she knows that she can still look to dad to help or to talk. We did a bit of both today and it felt good.

Later, my son and I continued our burgeoning tradition of spending a half hour to 45 minutes reading. Just reading. We go off some place where televisions and video games aren't and we do something as old fashioned as all get out, but still valuable nonetheless: we crack open our books. I've been a voracious reader all my life and so has my daughter. It's nice to pass down the habit to the next generation. His choice of reading material is 9 year old stuff, in this case a graphic novel, but he's putting his mind to work and when we closed the books for the night, we were both smiling. Seeing his toothy grin had me swelling up with gratitude that he is in my life.

I'll hit the bed tonight full of things to thank God for, including being able to share these thoughts with you on this blog. Thank you.
