Really, is one day enough to share your gratitude with all those individuals, emotions, and material objects around you? The Facebook status messages yesterday read like high school yearbook pages. It’s nice that we have at least one day in the year for the collective pause to share our gratitude. I wish it was more often than that one day, but we can by:
- Keeping thank you cards in your bag and writing to someone who assisted you today.
- Calling a mentor, friend, grandparent who spent the most expensive commodity we have, time, with you.
- Visiting a neighbor with a homemade pie and flowers from your garden to say thank you for being a good neighbor.
There are countless ways to weave in moments of gratitude in our days.
This year, I spent Gratitude Weekend at my parents’ home where we feasted on vegan dishes and enjoyed each other’s company. Although TD is too small to share in the delight (and was sleeping the entire time), we all cheered to her and how grateful we are for her presence in our lives.
I am ever so grateful to have TD in my life.
