An awareness and a feeling

May you feel grateful today—so grateful that you feel grateful in your ribs!

I am going to remember to stop rushing around, stop being busy with my holiday activities for a few minutes. I am going to remember to be aware that I am grateful.

“Gratitude is both a feeling and an awareness,” wrote Marcus Borg in his book Convictions. “At its most intense as a feeling, it can be felt physically—that sense we sometimes have of our rib cage virtually breaking open in gratitude. Gratitude is the most visceral form of thanksgiving.

“As an awareness, gratitude is the realization that our lives are a gift.”
