... CHILDREN.  This is the time of year where one is offered the opportunity to take stock of the blessings in one's life - to give thanks for what has come into our lives through Grace - a gift bestowed upon us without having earned it and without owing anything to anyone for it.  It is a time to quietly reflect on what is good, what has been accomplished, what is around us and what is within us, that both make us who we are and make us behave the way we do.  It is a time for generosity - to thank those people we love for being just the way they are - in their natural state and not a state we might wish for them.  In summary, it is a time for deep and thorough ACCEPTANCE ... acceptance for what has been - for what is - and for what will be.

Today's card is dedicated to my three children.  I give thanks to each of them, as individuals in their own right.  Thank you Jordan, Ayla and Taylor for the wonderful, loving and deeply rich humanity and spirit you continuously deliver to this planet.  SQUISHY HUGS.
