I am grateful for...

The 'gratitude / being' game was one of the few really beautiful games that we played with my four-year old nephew Sanat. We would take turns and say "I am grateful for... / I'd like to be a...." anything we wanted.

After some expected ones like the sun, flowers, amma, water, food, fall colours ... some unexpected ones like the spoon, socks, sleep, Ms. Strotter (his favourite teacher), the painting... some silly ones like the belly button, Sanat said "I am grateful for myself". None of us had thought of that!

The game taught me how powerful and wonderful it is to express gratitude; a state of acceptance and harmony.
