Today is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. My wishes to you for a very happy one.
Today is a good day to reflect on all we have. It's great that a day has been set aside to acknowledge our many blessings.
Still, I try to keep in mind that gratitude is a way of life. It can be front and center for us every day of our lives. Somehow when I start the day thinking of even a handful of things for which I'm grateful that day, it makes such a difference in how my day unfolds. I'm setting the tone for the entire day.
I wish I could say I do this every day. It's my intention to do so. But it doesn't always happen. I celebrate if I even remember to take the time for it most days of the week. And I do have a Gratitude Journal where I can actually record those things for which I'm grateful. Perhaps now, just having admitted to you that I sometimes slack off, I'll be even more intentional and faithful to this practice, one which has been so helpful for me.
Happy Thanksgiving! May your heart ever be grateful.
