I applaud the many folks who have committed to an intentional list of thankfulness for the month of November. 2012 has been a YEAR of documented gratitude for me. On track to reach 1000 gifts of thankfulness by December 31,2012, it has been an exercise that has refined me, that has tried me, that has made me a new person — better, more complete, and more THANKFUL!
THANKSGIVING HAS A WAY OF MAKING PROPER, OUR PERSPECTIVE.
AND….PROPER PERSPECTIVE FILLS LIFE WITH RICHNESS THAT OVERFLOWS!
I printed out my list this week and took the time to read back over each and every gift and reason for the gratitude within (825 thus far). A year in review simply stated = my cup runneth over. As we gathered around an intimate table of Thanksgiving celebration today, (we kept it simple this year due to Rick’s knee surgery) and will later gather with extended family for all the sweets and treats of Thanksgiving, no one can deny HIS goodness in our lives.
As we celebrate, as you celebrate, may we do so by giving thanks with a grateful heart; for a grateful heart is the source of thanks giving!
