GratiTuesday – April 17th

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Welcome to another GratiTuesday! As the weather here in New England warms up we are inexorably drawn outdoors to enjoy nature’s spring-time delights. When work and other obligations require us to be indoors, we might at least enjoy the music of the Natural World listening to “Forest and Nature Sounds”: https://youtu.be/OdIJ2x3nxzQ   Each Tuesday, we invite one another to express one thing – in the comments field – for which you are grateful, and/or Share that sentiment as a post on your favorite social media site. It needn’t be lofty and can certainly reflect something we usually take for granted. I’ll go first… I AM so happy and grateful walking through the forest… barefoot! Now your turn. I AM so happy and grateful now that/for: _____________________
