I was thinking today that there are a number of things I am grateful for.
The first is for my father who through a time of illness has come out the other side changed. And changed for the better. He has always been amazing but his deep understanding of suffering has made him more connected and more aware. By far a better person and I think he was great before.
The second is for my health. I have had a number of health scares in the last year myself. Everything has been caught early, everything has simple lifestyle remedies. If 2012 was a wake up year as a result 2013 is a year to be awake and live.
