This morning, I want to focus my gratitude on one area, and see where it leads me. I want to think about my decade of trips to Mepkin Abbey. First and foremost, I'm grateful for the spiritual deepening that comes from those times at Mepkin.
I am grateful for how the monks conserve the land.
I am grateful to have time to sit by the banks of the river.
I am grateful for the writing projects which may not have ever developed, had I not had this writing time.
I am grateful for treats of all kinds from the gift shop.
I am grateful for the comfort that comes from knowing that the monks pray for us all, each and every day.
