An Editorial by Aleesha Stephenson

Appreciation. Putting this issue together has been such a gift. Reading all the writers different submissions, hearing about how grateful they are only deepens my own appreciation for them. I find you really get to know someone in a deeper way when you hear about what they are grateful for!

My sister Seva and I have been sending our "Grateful Fors" back and forth to each other for a year and a half now. We let each other know how much we love each other and how much our lives are filled with bliss, even during times of stress or sadness. Our connection to our joy keeps us grounded and assists us to - even if for a moment - come out of our sorrow to find our bliss. My friend Melissa and I have begun this ritual as well and I have a Yahoo group, which I started in December of 2006 where a small group of us share our 'Grateful Fors' with each other.

I also have a thread in our new forum where I share my gratitude. I believe the more people who read what you are grateful for, the more your gratefulness grows. So spreading my joy with others brings me even more joy and perhaps, it assists them to stop for a moment and list off their own gratitudes. Ahhhh I love the power of thought and intention!

In this issue we have a fundraiser. A young girl, 9 years old is shaving her gorgeous long head of hair to support her friend who has cancer. Please take a moment and consider supporting her - what a gift to not only give to the Cancer foundation, but to allow this young girl to see how much her story can touch others. Through your gift of support I hope she sees the many faceless strangers who care… and in that moment… she can make a deeper connection with the world of people around her. A great lesson for a young girl!

Our new forum is coming along. Many of the sections are not visible to those of you who are not members of the forum, but once you join, you'll see the other sections. We have a handful of members and we're bonding and sharing - getting to know each other. I hope you will come join us. We laugh a lot, share deeply and are creating a place of support - it's an honour to be part of this process.


ps Please take a moment and read this very important request which sits very close to my heart.

pss Don't forget to use the 'next page' links in the bottom right corner of each page to move through the magazine! Every issue the image changes but it always does the same thing… moves you from one page to the next so you don't miss a single morsel of information! Enjoy!!!
