#AtoZ Challenge: A is for ABUNDANCE!


Today's 'heart things, heart strings' theme for the letter A in the A to Z challenge is Abundance! A great word to open up and expand the heart, don't you think? ;)

I like this word for not only does it conjure up good feelings, if you look at it carefully you can break it up as follows: a-bun-dance. I think this stirs up a funnier image and feeling as in "shaking your booty." I don't know about you, but I love dancing and can get pretty wild...I mean just letting go and having fun. How about you?

On a more serious note though, I'd like to point out that a lot of people are blessed with abundance in their lives. I could give you many examples; however, I'd like to give you the opportunity to share some, preferably unique things you are blessed with in your life.

I will give you a personal example. Yesterday, despite a very long day of moving and final cleaning (mostly floors) of my suite, I was aware of the abundance I had experienced that day.

1. The weather was primarily clear, cloudy, with only a few droplets for a very brief time, maybe five minutes?
2. I had an abundance of helpers, an extra last-minute hand was available via another friend who helped me move which made moving a lot easier and faster. He was strong and efficient!
3. Enough vehicles on top of the moving truck I rented so I could return the truck back in time.
4. An abundance of 'gifting' - the generous gift from a female choir member who not only helped me with the last two carloads of stuff, including food (from fridge and freezer), she also helped me to return the rented rug cleaner AND paid for a delicious Rebellious Tomato pizza on top which we ate with another choir member and mutual friend. The latter was my original plan with friends and I was going to treat them, but they all had other commitments.

So tell me, what is on your unique list?

P.S. I will feature some of my own images, once I get my home computer set up.

  5. I feel it depends on state of mind too. Few see abundance in less, for others it's never enough.
    Glad to hear that you received so much help :) You must be popular among people :)

    1. That is a really good point you make Raj! My new move has me appreciating what I already have and downsizing for so many good reasons...there is abundance in both. :) I didn't know/think I was "popular." ;) <3

    1. I love that! :) Perhaps that's why we have the cosmos in the first place: to put our ego in place! ;) <3
