Looking Toward Thanksgiving

As we are nearing Thanksgiving in the aftermath of the presidential election, it may be difficult for some of us to fully embrace gratitude, since many other emotions might be getting in the way.  It is helpful sometimes to focus on one person or one experience we can feel thankful for and let ourselves just be with that.  This is a time for gentle compassion toward ourselves and others as we pick ourselves up to go forward with strength.

Perhaps this song by Natalie Merchant can help sooth our souls. We also can send it to someone as a way to express our gratitude and raise up the power of connection and love.

“You have been so kind and generous, I want to thank you”
