This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.
We receive gifts every single day but we need to begin to be aware of our gifts. Those who make a daily Ignatian Examen begin with a prayer for light and then go over the day to thank for all the gifts received, both spiritual and material. Some even keep a gratitude journal in order to be more conscious of the daily gifts and graces bestowed on us. To experience gratitude, we need to be aware that we have been given something. That is why we need to see all as gift.
Grateful people are joyful people!
