In the upright position connected to spirit, this card asks us to consider all the things we are grateful for. I could go on for ages; keeping a gratitude journal for three years changed how I view everything in my life, from the tiniest things to the enormous.
I'm reminded by this card of hot coffee in a chicken mug from a friend, the beautiful and heartfelt sympathy cards lined up around my desk. My grandmother's small lamp, circa 1930 from her farm in Illinois and the new curly bulbs providing light. The digital camera which allows me to share images of this deck, of computers and internet access which make it possible to connect with the artist across the world. For eyesight and fingers to type, for the clear mammogram this week, for the three little doggies behind me...there is no end, and for all I am grateful my spirit and mind can both recognize and accept these gifts.
"Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness." ~ James Thurber 1894-1961
