The best gifts we receive today do not come wrapped in shiny bows and bright paper. The best gifts we can receive are those of love everlasting, kindness to carry in our hearts all year through, and the purest of joy to light even our darkest days.
I am grateful for my family and friends, for the love, hope and faith they gift me with everyday, even when I am at my most undeserving. I am grateful for the strength of their hearts and their loving presence in my life.
I am grateful to the universe for giving me the opportunity to live this life of adventure, safe harbours to weather storms, beauty when I remember to open my eyes to see it, and everyday grace.
I am grateful to each and every one of you who visit my little Nourished Life table. I am grateful that you are here to share my yummy treats, my attempt at living a grateful life, and inspiring me to keep writing.
I am grateful for the man who loves me, who cradles me in his arms when I am weak, who stand beside me when I fight, and who taught my heart that there is an inexhaustible amount of love in the universe when you open you heart to receive it.
Merry Christmas to you all. I hope this year brings nourishment for mind, body and soul, tidings of joy, kindness in all that you do, gratitude for the beauty of our every day lives, and love for every corner of your heart.
