The author shares a journal of spiritual insight and revelation with readers. It reads like a kind of “notes to oneself” while on the road of the spiritual journey. The theme of some of these notes are thankfulness, hope, gratitude, creating, healing, oneness, acceptance, and numerous others.
Hillis shares a wide range of things to be grateful and thankful for, many I hadn’t thought of before. For instance, he shares, “As time goes on we tend to forget about our ancestors and elders who put forth the work to bring us where we are today.”
These are raw insights, sometimes simple and straightforward, and sometimes complex and poetic, that can be used as a daily reader for inspiration and contemplation. I enjoyed reading it and recommend it.
I am amazed by the love that comes through so clearly on every page. This book serves as a beautiful reminder of all there is to be grateful for. Hillis has a very special way with his words and I very much relate to him. Thankful to have come across this book.

Because I am RS believer and have been most of my life, Early on I was taught the value of “Be thankful this day and everyday”. This book reminds us of the value of thanksgiving and its connection to our Higher Power and reminds us of our doorway to our Higher Consciousness’.
When asked His name God said “I Am”. I loved the chapter on the New I Am.
Hillis asked questions of himself that each of us should ask (and answer).
What kind of (Fill in the blank) would I be if I didn’t share what lies in my heart
What kind of (Fill in the blank) would I be if I didn’t share what my eyes placed before me
What kind of (Fill in the blank) would I be if I didn’t share what my mind has taught me
What kind of (Fill in the blank) would I be if I didn’t share my gift with you
That blank can be filled with many different words; Father, Son, Employee, Volunteer and so on. Hillis used “Poet” but each of us can use a multitude of descriptors there.
We should all live the advice this book gives, “Be thankful this day and everyday” and ask of ourselves the question Hillis puts forward in the book, “What are you thankful for?”
