Gratitude aka Veteran’s Day

10-25-12 Duke with color guard

Our ability to move forward into something more positive is directly proportionate to our ability to let go of the fear.

For many moments so far this week, I have forgotten how I learned to have a cooperative relationship with my fear because I believe it is serving to protect and to help me to grow forward.  Fortunately, I wrote an entire Fear Series here several years ago to remind me.

And because of that I am grateful.  In the course of a nine-hour period, I have almost taken back my personal power as a result.  For that, it has allowed me to feel a great deal of gratitude for so much.

Because it is also Veteran’s Day, I am also grateful for all of those Veterans I have had the honor to meet and my favorite of those I have had the honor to love and to be loved by throughout my life—my father.

May all of you feel the love and feel the power that love holds for you in your courage, bravery, sacrifice and ultimately in your healing for those sacrifices.

Happy Veteran’s Day!  Remember you are loved and supported by so many of us!

  1. Thank you Tawny, for all that you have done for us vets…Even before you were on staff and getting paid for what you do, ( you should have been getting paid the whole time), you were bringing Duke out to chill with us, that was really cool to see him there in the morning when I was coming out to have my coffee, strolling by for a pat; what a way to start the day… God bless you, and for what you do go us!!!
