Ponderosa Pines are the dominant evergreen that exist on Cape Cod’s sandy soil, and these magnificent specimens live on my front lawn. Perhaps I take too much “pride” in these creations, but it forces me to be ever grateful for the beauty that is all around me. Grateful people are happy people, those who aren’t, aren’t. Thus, it would seem that logic dictates one should look deep and find that “one thing” that makes one grateful. It could be the smile on your daughters face, a beautiful sunrise, a family of ducks swimming across a cool New England pond in the rain, a kind word from a friend, or the realization that everything is exactly as it is supposed to be at this moment–which is all we really have anyway. For me, seeing a Cardinal sitting high atop one of these pines is enough to allow that gratitude to become dominant and soon, all else, every negative thought, vanishes like a fog bank as the sun slowly rises above the Nantucket Sound…letting go and letting GOD. Have a great week end! Peace~ M
