Sharing thanks for inner peace and friendship

Garden Buddha taken at Hick's Flower Show

I am very drawn to eastern philosophy and the idea that we are all connected. I loved this garden Buddha that I saw at the Hick's Flower Show. It looked like such a serene place to meditate. Spring has sprung, although we have returned to normal temperatures of 50s around here. Just sitting outside among the beauty of Spring flowers creates a moment of peace during a hectic day. Here is what I was thankful for today.

1) I was thankful that I could be a good listener for my good friend Liz. It is so good to be able to talk and share feelings with kindred spirits. I am hoping that my listening skills brought her some inner peace from the frustration she is feeling.

2) I was thankful to meet a new violin student today. I can tell my student practices and I am looking forward to working with her to improve her skills and help her become a great violinist.

3) I am thankful to play with the South Shore Symphony. I am looking forward to the dress rehearsal with the dancers from the American Ballet Theater. We are doing Stravinsky's Petroushka which is a real challenge.

4) I am thankful for seeing my daughter Liz work up a sweat to get into better shape. I am so proud of her. She is trying to change and move more.

I invite you to share something that you are thankful for that brought you peace, or a moment of peace.
