Thanksgiving - Being Grateful For The Losses and The Blessings

A good friend of mine lost her daughter this Friday to an illness. Losing your child is the most devastating loss. How does a parent learn to accept that kind of a loss? How do they continue living with a gaping hole in their life and their soul? There is no easy answer to this question. We all experience losses continuously, small losses and tragic ones: loss of a job, loss of a loved one, loss of a tooth, loss of youth, loss of a home, and loss of a cherished dream.

Can we learn to feel grateful in spite of continual losses? Can we learn to accept what life takes away, as well as what it blesses us with? Can we grow through both experiences? We can, and we have too. Everything we are faced with can inspire us to attain a deeper understanding and a sweeter appreciation of life, its preciousness and its magic. I invite you to meditate on and write down three painful losses consciously, and three gifts life has brought your way this year. Can you find a reason to be grateful for the losses and the blessings?
