An inner sense of gratitude

Am on my way to Jenny Hellströms mindfulness course for a 1 day retreat in silence who I am currently assisting during my own mindfulness training. 

Sitting on the bus I heard 2 people singing the most beautiful tunes, so beautiful tears sprang to my eyes. Apparently they were rehearsing for their church choir. 

I realized this morning that when sitting down to meditation my whole body shrieks with joy! Every cell in my body appreciates my intention and a smile spreads across my lips. I am present and a sense of inner gratitude for life itself as it is sets in. 

I am curious at what this day will bring and promise to share with you any insight that comes with being silent, with being with myself, my thoughts and emotions for hour after hour.
