Gratitude Meditation

We are sick. It is rare that the entire family is sick at the same time — usually there is an obvious patient zero — but in this case we’ve managed it.

When I realized that today’s exercise was a gratitude meditation, I admit that I eyed my computer dubiously. But it took only a moment’s reflection to come up with a suitable topic for gratitude. Yes, we are sick. But we have medicine to bring down fevers, a comfortable home, and shows to distract the children. (This may be the first time in my life that I’ve felt truly grateful for television.) Feeding the family involved only a quick run to the store for fruits and semi-healthy convenience foods. In short, there was plenty to fill up a gratitude meditation.

Happy Friday!
