Gratitude is an Attitude

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Even though life is difficult for everyone, if we stop every day and count the things we are grateful for and give thanks, it all seems bearable. Gratitude is an Attitude. I've begun to adopt a new way of thinking. I keep a little tea cup in my kitchen near my plants that's always full of water to remind me that my cup is full, not empty. I say outloud all the things I'm grateful for every day. As I drive the streets of CA and see so many homeless people, I say a prayer outloud thanking God for everything I have and asking him to provide homes for those people. Take a moment this Thanksgiving and remember all that you have and you will be surprised how long this list it. Enjoy your turkey and pumpkin pie and don't forget those who are less fortunate at this time of year and reach out to them if you can. Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi, Robin, thanks for stopping by. I love your thoughts on gratitude, totally agree. I am grateful every single day for my blessings. On linking up to the parties, each of us will be hosting on those dates listed, starting with Layla next Monday. Go to each host blog & we will all have linkies ready to join. Do a post on your blog & then go to the host blog & link up & everyone will find you. That's it. My mantel party is next Wed.
