New Beginnings every single day! LikeLiked by 3 people Reply New Beginning’s The night closes and the dawn begins. Dew falls from the morning sky, covering what lies beneath. The wind blows softly, as the clouds roll through the sky. The sun peeking back and forth, from the horizon and the nature of the sky. The fields, now glistening with the dew, that sets the new beginning. The flowers drink of the dew, that lies on their pedals. New growth begins, from all forms of nature. And now the new beginning, has begun. Copyrights © | Creative Essence’s Creative Writing™ | William P.

However, there are times when I’m completely gobsmacked by the gratitude I feel. So the simple answer is every single day, only it’s much more complex than that.

What made you start doing it every single day? LikeLiked by 1 person I loooooooove this question. I can honestly say that even the middle of a middle age meltdown (those seem to happen a lot these days) I will force myself to be thankful. Out loud, even when they happen when I am on a run (yesterday lol). I am so thankful that I have figured out how to find my thankfulness b/c I truly believe it is the key to putting things in perspective. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Awesome! It is because it allows us to see the good things about our life from time to time. I know there are times we see what we can improve about it and that’s good, but we must not forget that there already is some greatness in the life we have. LikeLike Reply Bob, to answer your question, is my reply to robynbird. “When the night falls and the stars are lit brightly, is the time I think and thank for the gratitude that happened that day. Unless gratitude is an immediate attention in action. But great question! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Awesome! Do you do it whenever the night falls (every day)? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I do not. I go out and look at my night sky. I may now, ask whomever on the other side of the screen let’s walk outside and look at the sky. LikeLiked by 1 person Cause unless the person on the other side, wants me to know where they are from. But if they don’t ask, catch 22 Bob, then it’s not my business to know!? LikeLiked by 2 people Im grateful the Keebler Elves had enough dough and batter and icing so I can eat them. This isn’t actually what I was gonna say, but the other is way to depressing! As long as I can walk outside, have to stop at the Keebler Elves bakery, and be able to see a bird flying, our squirrel getting a late harvest. To look at the trees and just be able to see they’re healthy. I think in my past life, I was a plant. Just to walk through the woods, let your stress go, and enjoy nature. Why heck man, I write stories about Enchanted Forest, out there and the leaves waving. But you know really, that’s where I can catch that guy that past me earlier LikeLiked by 2 people When I was walking down the street. He was mumbling something this man I was talking about, and decided to send the story then finish it. But when I’m with nature, I catch this in reflection, but that guys mumbling became clear to me that he was actually delivering a message that I prayed about or just asked, for me, I’m always talking to my best friend. His name is Christ for me. He became Christ moment He gave Himself for us. Some don’t believe, each to their own. No judgement here. Well just a few days ago, I poured my heart out to a stranger, something holding me in bondage, self-conviction. The point of that man and my nature walk, I recalled and he delivered a message. I think everyone that passes through each of our lives, are meant to be for a purpose. Why and the purpose is for you to find out why. That guys mumbled though, I asked my best friend inside my heart years ago, you think my brother will ever give me the tom tom drum a made. Well as clear as the day is, the words came across No he won’t give it to you. That’s exactly what that man said. That’s was a beautiful day I made that tom tom, but my mother and I was at a craft show, we are quarter Cherokee, but was pulling a benefit show to raise proceeds for the Sioux Indian, they are the poorest of all nation’s. So because the way life is, held that pow wow and I made that tom tom sitting right there. Painted the medicine wheel on it. And my mom looked over and said, that’s not being sold you know that. I asked why, she said because I watched my son craft that. Well it hangs on my brothers garage wall for all places, and I said you need give that back to the maker. He said nah, cause you leave this world, I won’t anything of yours. Well I prayed about it. Or asked Him if I’d ever get it back. Clear as day, his mumble was clear as day. Or maybe I might have took one or five too many nerve pills. Nah, haha, true story ask my brother, his names John Darnell! Find him on Facebook. I’m not a Facebooker anymore.
