A Thank You Walk




Thank You Notes are a part of my spiritual practice. Today, I wrote many to friends all over the country for sending me birthday cards and presents. After my right hand was sore from writing, I walked in the wind to my little post office to drop them into the slot. Because walks are precious things these days, I appreciated each step, and because I was delivering a backpack of thank yous, my walking mind rested on gratitude. I've heard of a gratitude lists; this was a Thank You Walk. On a Thank You Walk, I try only to think of things I'm grateful for. I can't say I was successful in doing so for all 40 minutes of the walk, twice these reflections inspired me to call friends I was feeling thankful for, and I count the time on those calls as being apart of the practice too.
