Thank You

At this time of Thanksgiving in America, I’m reminded of the unknown song by Karen Carpenter which (to my memory) goes something like:

“Sometimes, not often enough
We reflect upon the good times
And those thoughts always center around those we love,
And we think about the people,
Who mean so much to me,
And for so many years have made me so very happy,
And I think about the times I have forgotten to say,
Thank you
And how much you really mean to me.”

So, at the beginning of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s Eve, it’s important to pause, give thanks, embrace the good, and show others how much we love them and are grateful for having them in our lives.

If I’m unable to thank those I love personally, I engage fully in the divine power of Spirit to convey my message. I often repeat an affirmation which goes:

You are the divine light of God in expression.
You are whole and holy.
You are peaceful, loving, and wise.
You are free.

In repeating this to myself, I let go of troubling concerns, control, worry, regret, and memories of past mistakes. I relax, breathe, let Spirit do Spirit, allowing peace, love, and joy to open and fill my heart.

Being thankful requires forgiveness, and forgiveness requires being willing to let go. I am so blessed with all the experiences I have had in my life—painful, sad, joyful, happy, love, hate, fear, and guilt. All of you and them have made me the person I am today. You are my blessings, and I’m thankful to you for giving me my soaring wings and ability to see.

Today, I challenge you to let go, forgive, embrace the good, and let God do God’s magic. In doing so, you will change the way you see and change the way you live.
