Every day there are extraordinary gifts all around us…some are miracles and some are blessings.  When we use eyes of gratitude, we are even more aware of the beauty and the mystery that surrounds us.  I have found that if we begin each day with the intention of finding these very amazing gifts, we will.  Often, it is not in finding new places or things that are exceptional, it is using  new “lenses” that see them differently, tied with a bow of appreciable fulfillment.
