The first Monday of the month is here and that means it's time for a reflective moment with Path of Positivity!  This month our theme is appreciation; now that's very timely since here in the US we celebrate Thanksgiving.  As I contemplated this idea of appreciation I had several ideas I wanted to express; therefore, I went to my journal so I could put it all together in one piece.  

I started with the idea of the Native American and this adorable digi from A Day For Daisies.  I personally cannot think of Thanksgiving without remembering the incredible contribution from the inspiring people native to our country.  I have great admiration for their skills, talents, arts, philosophies, stories, etc.  I'm very appreciative of their culture and what they contribute to our country.

Next, I found this beautiful quote about appreciation from Dalai Lama.  Of course, as I read this I was reminded of the Christian parable found in both the books of Mark and Luke.  This is the parable where Christ shares the story of the seed falling onto different types of soil.  This brings me back around to this sweet little girl planting her seed so carefully!  

So, there is my path this month!  I didn't meander too far this month......ok, I wandered many different paths, but at least I stayed on paths this month!  ; )
