"Greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains, approach (your) work with a clean mind... be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the hours; (and) approach the night with... the joy that comes from work well done." 
~ Thomas Dreier ~

If we treat things with reverence, then we will experience the preciousness of life. The more gently and mindfully we take care of the management of our bodies, our finances, and all of the things that we own, the more we will appreciate them.
     To light a candle and sit in its light is a sensuous delight of immeasurable proportions; so too, is each bite of a delicious meal, the feel of fresh water on our face in the morning, and getting into bed at the end of a long day.
     Life is a great blessing, no matter the intricacies of our external circumstances. Let's pay attention enough to the details to allow them to bless us.

I approach my day with reverence that I might feel the spiritual blessing of appreciation.
