Today I stand in gratitude for the healing and peace that is taking hold in America today. We have had over 500,000 souls to lose their lives from the pandemic alone causing many of us to mourn alone as our family members died alone. I am so grateful that we have a leadership in this Country today with a heart to love, reach out and embrace all Americans. I am eternally grateful for the nurses, doctors, scientist, first responders and every essential worker that love so much that they willingly sacrifice their own lives for each of us daily. They have chosen to stand in and walk in their calling. They are our super heroes. I am grateful that on today I am able to breathe in deep exhale slowly and watch nature takes its course in various forms. I am grateful for the here and now to truly be able to love my neighbor, my Country, my world. Take a moment today to enjoy your right here and now! Breathe in, exhale slowly and know that this day was gifted to you.
I am reminded of Maya Angelou’s quote “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
Love, Peace and Hope,
Brenda D. Cooper
