No one is born thankful. Gratitude is something that is learned, and perhaps the best way to learn gratitude is by repeatedly expressing it. It is by offering thanks that we can come to something like thankfulness. When our children were young we would often prompt them to express gratitude -- Say 'thank you' to the nice gentleman. -- not merely to teach them manners, but also so that they might learn gratitude. After all, thankfulness takes practice.
FOR PEOPLE who speak and for people who listen
FOR MOMENTS to share and moments to partake
FOR FAMILY members who bless my life with their countless gifts of love
FOR MY HEALTH which has been good through out the winter. The cold and dark days of winter are the hardest on me and I'm very thankful that Spring is here.
FOR LENT, a season to change my heart and renew my soul.
For these and all my many blessings I am so truly thankful.
Lenten Tip for Today:
GIVE inspiration to be courageous to a friend who is having a rough time.
I'm hoping your Thursday is one in which you have many things to be thankful for too!
