Gratitude for Rainbows & Butterflies

sailboatThis week we continue with our overview of the concepts of Simply An Inspired Life (SAIL) by looking at GRATITUDE - the third of the Eight Points of an Inspired Life.

You can find the previous issues of SAILings... in our archive.

Mary Anne - video interview
Helen Raptis and Dave Anderson talked with Mary Anne about Live Boldly on AM-Northwest October 17. It's short but inspiring. You can watch the video here: http://www.katu.com/amnw/segments/31164034.html

MAJOR upgrade to web site
It's ALL changed. Please look around the sail7.com web site and sample everything. Please read Eight Points of An Inspired Life - they are the basis for our approach to Joyful Living. Sample the Inspirational Quotes and browse the 11 articles now in the Library. Get a preview of mary anne's TWO upcoming Books.

Comments? - What would you like to see?
Please let us know: do you like the web site changes? The articles? The quotes? What can we do to make sail7.com your very favorite web site and this your very favorite email? Please send your comments to mary anne (mar@sail7.com) or jonathan (jlh@sail7.com).

Do you want a Simply An Inspired Life Discussion Group?
We are hoping begin a Discussion Group in which members support each other in Inspired Joyful Living. Of course mary anne and jonathan would participate in the discussions, and of course it would be free. Our hesitation is the chicken-and-egg problem that a Discussion Group is only interesting if it has participation, and no one wants to go first. Are there a few people who would like to commit to getting the discussion flow started? Please send email to mary anne (mar@sail7.com) or jonathan (jlh@sail7.com).

GRATITUDE - the third Point of SAIL
I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving - I have gratitude for EVERYTHING that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment. I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings, the moments of peace and the flashes of anger, the compassion and the indifference, the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear. I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.

Yes. As the evening beckons with the promise of tomorrow... may your gratitude rise up and with strength answer, "yes." - mar

Gratitude for Rainbows & Butterflies
Our "Rainbows & Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life - the little things that are so easy to overlook, yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment to notice and to pay attention. Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies, for all God's creatures - large and small, for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain, for the tree veiled in the season's first frost, for the baby's laugh, for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
