This is the first of three books in a series sharing Hillis’ personal perception of gratitude from weekly experiences. Hillis Pugh shares the power of gratitude in this wisdom-filled and inspiring book that reminds us to be thankful in every aspect of life. Categorized by topics we can all relate to, this first volume of Thank You Thursday also includes several of Pugh’s poetic masterpieces.
“Acts of service, kindness, and generosity are meant to heart felt and genuine acts without expectations. How do you know if they are genuine acts or if someone really is in need? Knowing the difficulty of this considering the society and times living in, the voice of consciousness will let you know. Your spirit will move you to aide others in their time of need. No matter the circumstance, you’ll be ready to service another when the opportunity presents itself. We are meant to help each other daily, not just during the holidays or special events, or opportunities. There is a heartfelt joy when we know our deed has helped another. This is a joy that will continue to grow as we genuinely help others. We all have a part to play in the service of others. Just because “Tom” is volunteering at a shelter doesn’t mean you have to as well. Find what speaks to your soul.
Shell of Life
A vessel to sustain the energy contained given life too
Divinity set in motion A process of awakening Being close to home
Lifeless atoms charged with purpose Fathomlly connected with unity
All made up of one life One energy Different reasons One goal
Great care is desired for a fragile shell easily shattered by devices not of this world
Sending out an S.O.S Save Our Souls Save Our Shell Save Our System Save Our Skin Save Our Senses Save Our Strength Save Our Society Save Our Spirit This call can only be answered by the energy within
A vessel no longer a shell Now unified with energy of life Born again to the awaking action Welcoming the familiar and embracing the unknown
The full circle one life to the next an expression of the energy given life too
