{gratitude} day 7...the past

{gratitude} day 7...the past

It is certainly not easy to give thanks for things that didn't quite go how you planned in life, but if some rain didn't fall in your life...would you appreciate the sunshine as much? If you didn't experience the "bad", would the good feel so wonderful? So, today I give thanks that all my past - good & not so good - has taught me, oh, so many things and given me a new appreciation of life.

 Someone I loved once gave me
 a box full of darkness.
 It took me years to understand
 that this, too, was a gift.” 

~ Mary Oliver
