“Gratitude begins in our hearts and then dovetails into behavior. It almost always makes you willing to be of service, which is where the joy resides. It means that you are willing to stop being such a jerk. When you are aware of all that has been given to you, in your lifetime and the past few days, it is hard not to be humbled, and pleased to give back.” ― Anne Lamott, Help Thanks Wow: The Three Essential Prayer
There is so much to be thankful for, even in the midst of so many things we would never choose to experience for ourselves, or others.
Whatever circumstances we face in life, remember, that you are alive. That you are here. That you matter.
And maybe that little realization can help you make it through another day. Another season. Another challenge.
And together we can be thankful for what we have and extend to others what they need.
So if you don’t hear it from anyone else today (or anyday)…
From me to you, Thank you!
