Day 110 in Gratitude


I still love
Lyrics by Gretchen Parlato

Even if you said goodbye
Even if a dream may die
Even when my life is through
No matter what you say or do
I still love

Even if it makes me cry
Even if I don’t know why
Even when things fall apart
Even if you break my heart
I still love

Even when I feel alone
Even if I had no home
Til my fears have gone away
Let it go and come what may
I still love

Through my job and through my pain
Like the sun that follows rain
No beginning and no end
Love, so love comes back again
I still love

There's something about these lyrics that grab me. (And her voice is mesmerizing.) With the good, with the bad - I still love. The lyrics, this song reminds me of how I strive to live my life. Carrying yourself every day with optimism, gratitude, a thankful heart is not easy, but it's the way I choose to live. Seeing the world with grateful eyes helps you see things more clearly. Some days are so foggy it's a challenge to see through all the muck but if you look very closely - you'll find what you need to see.

What are you grateful my dear readers? Please share your thoughts, I'd love to hear from you.
