Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract. Often I learn simply by observing others. Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, yet I bow deeply in gratitude.
The origin of the word ‘community’ comes from the Latin munus, which means the gift, and cum, which means together, among each other; so community literally means ‘to give to each other.’
The delicious giving to each other that flows between YOU, who are the impetus of our being; the awesome staff; the support team who keep our ‘ducks in a row’; and our suppliers, many of whom we have known for years and who possess the highest integrity; create a web of lively, loving, learning interactions between and amongst us…community.
And, that I have the great privilege of standing in the midst of it all, delighting and learning from all of it, is bliss on a bun.
Truly blessed. Truly blessed. Truly blessed.
A deepest bow of gratitude to you all,
Teresa, spirit of Thule, Tucker, Huxley, and all at Paradise Found
Gratitude before me,
gratitude behind me,
gratitude to the left of me,
gratitude to the right of me,
gratitude above me,
gratitude below me,
gratitude within me,
gratitude all around me.
