Entering the last month of the year often moves me to introspection. Stock-taking. And, despite having a gratitude practice for many years, the reviews that come with the changes of season are particularly wonderful. New family members. Old friends. Appreciation for projects finished and new ones coming down the pike. Watching the birds gorge themselves on the things we have planted. All of this fills me with an appreciation for the abundance in our lives.

Here are some others’ thoughts about abundance. Please enjoy.

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much it is whether we provide enough for those who have little. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
