12 Days of Gratitude came to me today as I was thinking of the song, “The 12 Days of Christmas.” While I’ve looked more toward the meaning behind the holiday traditions, I realized that the song related to the 12 days between December 25th and “Little Christmas,” 12 days later when it is celebrated that the 3 Kings arrived at Baby Jesus’ manger.
I started thinking about the gifts we are given in this life, and can be aware of especially at this time. To identify the 12, I’ve decided to be open to what will come, rather than preplanning the 12 days. The first one that came to mind is this: Good Health.
Looking around me, so many people are elderly, in ill health, or are managing life-altering conditions. I can only feel compassion for the daily battle they fight to keep as independent as possible.
As my grandmother used to say,
“But for the Grace of God go I.”
I am blessed and grateful to have good health today, and know I can do better with keeping in good physical shape. This is my temple, and in 2018 I intend to take better care of it.
So today I am grateful for Good Health.
