This gorgeous image is a place in New Zealand called Emerald Lake. Stunned by its beauty, I immediately felt grateful that grand, magical places like this exist in our world. Then I was grateful that someone was at the right time and place with the right camera equipment to capture this shot for the rest of us to appreciate. Then I was grateful that I wasn’t actually there, because it looks too cold. Then I was grateful for my home, my family, my friends, my cats, my art, and for all of you, and for the existence of chocolate ~ and that without fail, the sun rises each day, giving us another opportunity to appreciate and be thankful.
