The Appreciative Heart …

Source unknown but deeply appreciated!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am compelled to share an inspiring and uplifting newsletter from The Ford Institute for Transformational Training  beautifully written by Kelley Kosow which includes an audio recording of the most magnificent prayer of thanks I have ever heard.

The prayer is entitled The Appreciative Heart and was generously gifted to us by the late Debbie Ford herself.  Upon hearing the rich, velvety texture of her voice I was reduced to tears … tears of sheer gratitude magnified by the humble, gracious and appreciative energy I experienced as I allowed myself to dwell in the space of pure appreciation … pure appreciation for all that I so absentmindedly tend to take for granted.

I share this gift with you here and hope you will take a moment to let your heart be nourished with the vibrational frequency of pure gratitude  offered and inspired by the spirit in this extraordinary prayer.  May the legacy of pure love that Debbie Ford inspired on this planet continue to touch us all …

The Appreciative Heart

With deepest gratitude, Karen

P.S. You can download it onto your phone should you want to listen to it again as you make your way through your day!

I'd sure love to hear your thoughts ...

My Tributes: Better Because of You ...

Better Because You chose Me …

I’d heard her name before. She and my bestie had met each other in class … there were both enrolled as mature students in the Social Work program offered through a nearby University.  The woman standing before me introduced herself as “Jody”.  She was direct … and … got right to the point. She was […]

Better Because You You Were There For Me … Thank You Marion!

Better Because You You Were There For Me … Thank You Marion!

With the jubilant joys of my 60th birthday celebrations starting to dim in the distance … imagine my surprise when I received a bright blue envelope via snail mail (aka: Canada Post.)  It was a greeting card from one of the people I had met and befriended decades ago while we were both living in […]

Better Because You Moseyed on Over …

Better Because You Moseyed on Over …

Its YOUR Birthday Hutch! Welcome to the sixties!  It’s tempting to poke fun at your age, but considering that you just caught up with me, I shall refrain. In fact, to the contrary, your buddy and I would like to dedicate this day to celebrating YOU … and … all the ways our lives have […]

Better Because of You … and … my 20 plus 2 years with FCSS!

I was scheduled to receive my 20 year long service recognition award at an agency function on Saturday, January 12 … but … because I won’t be at the gathering, I had arranged for my colleagues to accept it on my behalf.  They agreed to record the moment, so that I too, could listen to […]
