Abundance ~ An endless supply of water, trees heavily laden with fruit, a sun that shines every day, seasons in their never-ending cycle, a constant supply of air, an infinite wellspring of love, so many people to share with, an eternal cascade of imagination and creativity, unlimited lessons and growth, much valuable work to do, limitless potential for expanding and opening our hearts, unending forests to wander, evermore books to read and write, a vast mind of thoughts to explore, overflowing goodness, exponential wonder, overwhelming mercy, ~ a copious abundance of abundance to ponder.
