March 21st - Thankful Sunday
Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exitt at all.
Sometimes it’s tough to take a moment to express how thankful we are for all of life’s blessings. All too often there are never enough minutes in the day for all our obligations, from family and friends to work and making dinner and laundry. Add in additional stress, jobs, holidays, travel and the list of to do’s can become overwhelming. But I’ve decided to make time on each Sunday to give thanks for the blessings I’ve had during each week.
It’s nice to take a few quiet minutes to reflect on the many things I have to be grateful for.
This week brought the first day of Spring and with that some wonderful sunshine and warmer days too.
Winter was harder than ever to endure being shut up and staying at home so much. But with the Spring, I’m filled with hope for much brighter days ahead.
I’m thankful for the ability to get out and about with more freedom.Now that I’ve had the vaccine, and so have some of my friends and family, we can safely gather in one place and actually face to face, not behind a mask.
It’s so nice to see people smile again! Hopefully, more and more people will get their shots and soon we’ll be able to be somewhot normal again.
I’m thankful that more and more of my family are getting their vaccinations and right now no new cases of the virus have occurred. Everyone is healthy and safe.
I’m thankful the grass is starting to turn green and leaves are budding on the trees. We need some color in our lives and green is wonderful, reminding us of renewal and growth.
I hope you will take a few moments to reflect and give thanks, it makes you feel better no matter what else may be going on. When you think about good things, you feel good too.
Keep your eyes open to your mercies. The man who forgets to be thankful has fallen asleep in life.
