Things are Grateful to You
by Michael Feeley
THINGS ARE GRATEFUL to you when you take care of them.
When you polish a table, it shines.
When you water a plant, it stands firm and grows well.
When you charge your car (or fill it with gas), check the oil, and add windshield washer, it runs better.
When you wash your clothes, they feel and smell good.
The same is true for pets and people.
I have a cat named ‘Newbie’ who purrs loud like a motorboat when you feed and groom him. Purring is gratitude.
Yoga teachers help align us comfortably into a pose.
Therapists and coaches enable us to break through blocks that hold us back from change.
You can comfort a person going through an emotional, challenging time.
People and things are grateful to us when we care for them, help improve them, change them for the better, and
show them respect and love.
We can always be kind to all people and things. It’s the choice for goodwill – helping people and things be their best.
