Hi there –

I am so pleased to launch Stasia Desiderata on Thanksgiving. There couldn’t be time more perfect for this very first post to be about gratitude: the intended underlying theme of this blog.

There has been a couple of hiccups here and there lately. I don’t expect them to disappear anytime as life is, but it’s fun sifting the blessings. Really. Some of the many things I am most thankful for are:

  • a situation at work which inadvertently gave me time to do things I love
  • a son who has shown lots of improvement since his PDD diagnosis
  • being spared from the flooding that Thailand has suffered recently
  • the learning experiences from such a delightful hobby as blogging
  • hopes, dreams, inspiration!

Life oozes with positive vibes.  Isn’t optimism a wonderful thing? The chance to celebrate life is happiness itself.

Here’s a heart-warmer

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we see,
Father in heaven we thank Thee!
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

May we have grateful hearts always. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
