In this crazy world rejoicing for what you have is a good thing. Even on better days, rejoicing is an ideal way to approach life. There are a lot of adjectives that define this word and all of them are ways to express another good word gratitude. When you have enough in life rejoice and be grateful. When you can rejoice in the life you have but be ready to share it with others who need a little of what you have.
I don’t think or talk about gratitude much. Putting messages of gratefulness out into the universe is a good thing. God and the world needs to hear more from me about this. More to come.
It’s Thanksgiving day here in America. A day set aside for us to give thanks for what we have. It’s a very different Thanksgiving in the world of COVID-19 we live in. There are many reasons to have a grateful heart among the tragedy and turmoil. Be mindful of those we have lost in these months and those who are working and serving on a day where being with loved ones is the rule of the holiday.
My hope is that you are gathered in small groups around a table enjoying a meal that will bring you together or virtually connecting on Zoom or an old fashioned phone call.
To all around the world may you have a spirit of thanks on this day. Grace and peace and love to all.
Have a great day everyone.
Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.Sarah Ban Breathnach
Be grateful that you have slowed down, and that life has more meaning these days. Even in these tough times, you have an opportunity to regain a part of you that was lost. May this new normal be long-lasting.
Living with an attitude of gratitude is always a good thing. Being grateful for what you have and not worrying about the rest can make life easier. Thankfulness is a blessed thing. Be glad for the people and things you have no matter what.
Happiness and gratitude are very interconnected.
