Here in Hawaii, as in many other desert or tropical places, there are gecko lizards everywhere. They are startling when you first encounter them and then you get used to them. They make a rather loud kind of clucking sound from time to time, but other than that, they are very quiet. The cottage I’m staying in has lots of geckos in it. They can be sited along the ceiling and the walls and window sills all day and night.
At first, I was thinking that they were, perhaps, unwanted. I’ve realized that they’re incredibly helpful. Here in the tropics, insects abound. It’s the perfect breeding ground for a lot of insects. Because the house is loaded with geckos, I don’t see any insects.
When I was in England last summer, the house was full of spiders. I put out about 5 spiders a day. I had glasses and cardboard all over for capturing and releasing them outside. Spiders bite, so I really didn’t feel good about having them in the house, even though they’re bug eaters too.
So, I’m grateful for my lizard roommates and the service they provide. It’s wonderful to have a living practice of gratitude and being able to be willing to find the benefit in everything keeps me in the practice of gratitude.
Is there anything in your life that you’ve been judging as being bad and thinking you wish it were different? It probably has a gift for you, that you won’t be able to recognize until you’re willing to be grateful.
Are you willing to be grateful for it today so that you can receive the gift?
