Attitude of Gratitude

The essence of the Thanksgiving Holiday isn’t about food or left overs.  It’s not about ball games or shopping.

Thanksgiving is about gratitude.  Coming together with family and friends to celebrate each other and give thanks for the blessings received during the year.  Some years the blessings are basic – a job, a spouse, having survived something that fundamentally life changing.  Other years allow you to be more expansive in the things you are grateful for.

I am grateful for the following:

  1. My family
  2. My Quizz and the Charlie
  3. My friends
  4. I’m maintaining my health
  5. My talents

Can I control what may happen tomorrow? No.  But I can express my gratitude for what I have in the NOW.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

About Leila

I hail from the East and view the world as my playground. I'm opinionated. My dog is my co-pilot, but my cat navigates better. I'm only limited by my imagination. While there are terrible things that happen in the world I am responsible for making good things happen where I live, and that affects the world at large making it a better place.
