Chapter 11, Page 28, Book 19

Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.

Robert Caspar Linter

November 29th - Don’t stop giving thanks

There is always something to be thankful for.

Just be cause Thanksgiving Day is over, its no reason to stop being thankful.  Givng thanks every day is one habit that is worth developing and one you can do everyday. There  are still a couple days of November left and Ill continue with the thankful theme until November is over, but that doesnt mean Ill quit being thankful.  Its become a habit for me and something I do every day.

The best way to reap the benefits of gratitude is to notice new things you’re grateful for every day. If we all practiced gratefulness more regularly, the world would be a better place.

This is because gratitude will  give us a more positive disposition and motivates us to pursue positive pursuits.  Gratitude or appreciation for the good things that happen in life is essential part of building happiness. When you’re going through a tough time it can be hard to remember to be grateful for the good stuff.  If you want to boost your mood, count your blessings.  You cannot be sad and thankful at the same time. 

Thankfulness makes every day better and happier.

The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surround us.

James E. Faust

So true we can be thankful every day of the year, not just on Thanksgiving. Always good every day to be thankful as we are so blessed.

As Diana said, Amen! Our pastor introduced a new word (to me) last Sunday, which I'm going to try and live up to: "Thanksliving."

Now there sweet lady, no one could have said it better, I wish I had said this:

What a great philosopher MA is!
