Time For Gratitude

Standard

If you knew this current trial,
this set back,
this seemingly impossible situation
were actually a great gift,
handwrapped by Spirit,
tied up with a bow
and a lovely tag attached
with your name on it—
would you open it?
If you knew that this gift
when welcomed and fully accepted
would lead you to your next level
of self-expression—
would you receive it?
If you knew that this gift,
although uncomfortable,
painful and perhaps
even detestable,
were rendering you stronger,
more capable, more competent,
more confident, more courageous,
more resilient and more intelligent—
would you say
Yes, please
and
Thank you?
Let’s assume for one moment
that everything suggested here is true…
wouldn’t it be time for some gratitude?
