God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you?
William A. Ward
The older I get, the more I believe that gratitude is the answer to almost every problem we face. It can transform anxiety, anger, and depression. It may not change our circumstances, though it often does, but it can change us
Today take the time to notice the gifts around you. Whether it is the natural beauty that surrounds you, the interesting people you encounter, or the simple beating of your heart, everything is a miracle if you have eyes to see it.
If we receive everything as a gift, designed for either our enjoyment, our transformation, or both, we open ourselves to a world of new possibilities.
Gratitude is one of the things that makes humans unique and sets us apart from the animals. But we have to speak it, in order to experience the power of being thankful.
Remember to let your gratefulness overflow into the lives of those you encounter today. It doesn’t have to be fancy, just offer them a smile, a touch, or the simple gift of your presence.
Today I’m thankful for:
2192. for the many stress free days that I enjoy
2193. for a Thanksgiving menu to plan, it means a family gathering
2194. for seasonal treats like Thomas English Muffins with cranberries
