Thanksgiving is here again! One more opportunity we have to think about what really matters and be grateful for it all. It is a truly enlightened festivity in that it highlights the immense power we receive when we celebrate life.
Yes, I believe that Thanksgiving is the most sacred day of the year and I am fortunate and---very thankful—that I live in a country that takes one day of the year to say and think: Thank you!
Usually, I suggest that we make lists of all the benefits we receive and enjoy.
But this year I am strongly motivated to share with you a special form of gratitude that has the sweet connotations of a deep prayer. It shares the true meaning of gratitude and involves us in contemplative prayer.
I am referring to a magnificent piece of music written by Violeta Parra and sung by a true master of life --Mercedes Sosa.
GRACIAS A LA VIDA is the original version. The following video is in Spanish with English subtitles. If you do not understand Spanish, listen to it feeling the emotion of her heartfelt THANK YOU TO LIFE.
