I attended a Thanksgiving dinner today and was reminded how important gratitude is.
Being grateful brings humility and gladness. No matter how bad things get there is probably something we can still be grateful for.
I’m thankful for the peace I experience daily. I don’t live in a war-ridden territory, nor do I need to see my husband or brother going to fight. I know where my children are, and they are well.
I’m thankful for the basic necessities. I have uninterrupted access to clean water, shelter, heat and fresh food, as well as recreation, education and social involvement.
Every time I get over a nasty cough, I remember how grateful I am to breathe easily.
I’m amazed I can plan for my future, with some level of certainty. I am grateful for the likelihood I will live through my seventies and enjoy my children’s children.
Please add a comment – what are the things you feel gratitude for?
