Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I love getting together with family, giving thanks, and of course- eating delicious food. This particular season, I am feeling very grateful for so many things. This past week I have witnessed a few things which have made me feel especially humbled by all of the amazing blessings I have in my life.
Some quotes on Gratitude that I love:
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” (Melodie Beattie)
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
“To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.” (Albert Schweitzer)
Have you stopped to list the things you are grateful for? I always find it amazing how my list can go on and on. So on this week of gratitude I give you a free download. It’s an 8×10 that you can print out, make your own gratitude list, and put it somewhere where you can see it. You will be glad you did!
