time and tide

Boris Pasternak said that a surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us. The past weekend was filled with surprises: a Friday night adventure, a Saturday team effort that took me beyond my default lone ranger MI and today the arrival of a dear friend on my doorstep from a land far away. My heart is full and my mind is trying to make sense of it all.

My key learning this weekend was that every moment carries countless things to be grateful for and choosing to give thanks revolutionizes my perspective, helping me to see surprises for the gifts they are rather than assuming that they are inconveniences or burdens.
