November is the Month of Gratitude by Josie Riviera

For many of us, November is the month when we celebrate Thanksgiving.
But, how can we nurture gratitude in our hearts?
Here are some simple ideas that may jump-start the season of giving.
Say "thank you" more often. Your loved ones do many things for you during the day, whether it's walking the dog, preparing meals, or brewing the morning coffee. Express your gratitude by saying "thank you" for everyday, mundane tasks.

Then, take the time to share with people how much joy they give you.
We've all heard the term, "Count your blessings," and are aware that many simple items in our lives are considered luxuries elsewhere.

So, give a name to your blessings, write them down, and share these blessings with your friends and family.

Many of my readers are aware that my daughter lives in Ireland, and I won't see her for Thanksgiving. However, I'll make a point to call her, and let her know she is missed and loved.

What are you grateful for? Please leave your comments below.
I'm grateful for all our readers and wish everyone who celebrates a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving.

  1. I am thankful for the Lord , for everything and everyone in my life

  2. It's so true that some of the simple things in our lives are considered luxuries elsewhere. I often think about that and refrain from complaining when things like my computer or the internet or whatever else don't work right.

  3. I'm thankful for the Lord and all the things he has blessed me with. I'm blessed beyond measure.

  4. I’m thankful for all the service women and men who are serving so we remain free.
