Talking with my husband the other day, I started listing for him all the things I love – animals and people, trees, rocks, stars, mountains, old buildings, snakes, caves, birds, valleys, insects, ferns….
And then I realized that the list would just go on and on because I couldn’t think of anything I didn’t love, so I opened my arms wide and laughed and said, “I love EVERYTHING!”
The realization filled me with such joy and wonder, while at the same time humbling me, because I know that the love I feel is something that’s always been there inside me. It’s not a result of anything I’ve done. It’s just there.
So today my heart is filled with gratitude for the love that swells within me.
