This blog is designed to showcase people and experiences that corner the market on character and make the world a better place. I hope that my stories will positively influence and inspire you to seek out similar elevating experiences that you can share with others. I'll also post ideas, activities, book reviews, quotes or personal anecdotes that might just add a little J.O.Y. to your journey. Welcome!
And though it would seem easy enough, to be thankful and make gratitude a habit, this Canadian author, farmer's wife, and mother of six, wants her readers to also be grateful when things aren't going our way, when life starts to challenge or pull us in directions that we don't want to go, and I gotta tell ya that that's not going to be easy. at. all!
But just as last year's one little word - peace - helped calm me in ways that I didn't think possible, I know that naming gratitude as my focal point will be a great way to keep it in the forefront and help me remember in all things to give thanks.
I'm not sure I'll necessarily make a list as the author suggests, but I like the idea of writing my gratitudes, of naming the things I appreciate, and, if I can intentionally do that three times a day for a year, I, too, will have a thousand things on my heart for which I am habitually grateful. So today I'm thankful for you, my readers, and for your encouragement, your support, and your kind comments. What are you grateful for today?
