A Simple 2-Word Prayer for Everyone.

My favorite prayer is a simple “thank you.”

Nothing is healthier or more life affirming than feeling gratitude for all that is divine.

I’m thankful for the fractalicious, multi-dimensional nature of the universe: Automatic, unsupervised, self-regulating motion!

I’m thankful that all life is one, and yet grander than the sum of all of our lives. I’m thankful for little birds, little people, and little creatures everywhere, including those inside each of us.

I’m thankful for my parents, grandparents and all our ancestors. Your love brought us to life!

I’m thankful for those who are gentle & patient listeners, for friends whose actions speak louder than words.

I’m thankful there are things that cannot be explained, no matter how we try. I’m thankful for magic, meaning, and imagination.

Yet, in the end, everything will wash away like tears in the rain, and I’m thankful for that, too.

Love elephant and want to go steady?
