Gratitude~~~ Susie Austin

 May you, and all those you love,
be so blessed and fortunate to

 be surrounded by people
who will help you get untangled
from the things that are binding you.
And, may you always know the joy
of giving and receiving gratitude



I read a true story this morning about a female humpback whale that had become tangled and was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat.  Rescuers worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around-she thanked them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

  My friends I encourage you today to look to those around you and know the joy that comes with receiving and giving gratitude. Be blessed you have the day; make a decision to have fun. Put aside the problems and stress for another day. I am truly blessed to have amazing people in my life for which am grateful. Be a good friend and be willing to help others untangle from the things which are binding them. This will help them as well as bring you great joy!
