Giving Thanks = Happy!
I recently heard that happier people tend to be those who are more grateful. I know I'd like to be one of those people. Why does it take a special day for me to step back and acknowledge all that I am thankful for? Why don't I acknowledge how blessed I am all day, every day?
Oddly enough, we also find these moments during times of tragedy. Recently, my Uncle Steve died. Out of his death, I felt more connected to those I love than I had in while. Why did it take that event to get me to that place? In some of my most painful moments, I have been more grateful for the support of my friends and family than any other time.
Well, today I am going to seize the opportunity and give thanks. After all, it IS the focus of the day. I truly have more blessings than I deserve. Our life this past year has been turned upside down over and over again. Despite some hardships, we are stronger as a family unit than ever before. I have found more balance and peace. I'd like to think that I've become a bit wiser too! :o)
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours,
