The "Shehekianu" blessing is one that is said whenever one is experiencing something special, for the first time ever, or for the first time in a season.  I think part of learning to feel gratitude is to recognize just how often we have these moments and how often we should consider saying this blessing.


Shehekianu 

Each day is a new moment

A gift

A revelation

I’ve never seen it before

And I will never see it again


It is a first

Special

Unique


The challenge is to remember that

To live each day

In wonder

In amazement

In awe


Thank you, God,

For bringing this day

Full of possibility

And wonder

May I appreciate it

As the blessing it truly is
