This Thanksgiving brings about massive amounts of “thanks” along with the mashed potatoes. This Thursday, as I sat at the table of bounty, I thought to myself, ‘will we all be here next year?’ I had to remind myself, not to take this moment for granted for it truly is a moment in time. As the season of giving, sharing and gratitude starts, I vowed to focus on these qualities daily in my life, knowing I am blessed. Basking in my Blessings.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” -Melody Beattie
