The present

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

I was watching an episode of Mrs Brown’s Boys recently and ‘Mrs Brown’ spoke about ‘the present’. She said how the present – now – is, as the other meaning of the word has it, the gift. And that all we have is the present. It’s the same wise insight of that magnificent movie ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. Living and appreciating the gift of the present moment. It’s all we have. It’s all we ever have. In this moment, all is well. Right now, there is so much to be grateful for. We have, right now, more than we could ever appreciate. More than we could want.

Now is an invitation to re-enter the gratitude attitude, bringing to mind the wonder of now. Being thankful, not to any deity, but cultivating an attitude of gratitude for all that is.
