Happy Thanksgiving – A Note On Gratitude & Daily Commitment to Gratefulness

Welcome Home President George H.W. Bush

Last Sunday at my church in Leander TX, my pastor was continuing his message on gratitude. I wrote down something that really spoke to me . He said that the opposite of gratitude is ‘forgetting’ . How often do I tend to go full speed in life & when I do – the likelihood to forget goes up exponentially. He also challenged us to make a list of all the things in life that we don’t have, things that we lost, or things that we think we deserve. He asked, “How does it make you feel?”. He then challenged us to write a ‘gratitude’ list. Of course -this felt better 🙂 I really don’t think any of us would have a problem writing down gratitude’s. We all have those life moments where someone stood up for us , loved us when we were feeling down. Those moments when we almost lost someone dear to us but they miraculously made it through. I started thinking , the problem is not being able to write the gratitude list. The problem is slowing down & reflecting on the list & then, most importantly, telling those I love as ‘not’ telling others would be the same as wrapping someone a gift and not giving it to them. This year I commit to slowing down and telling my family, employees and friends how grateful I am for them.

Happy Thanksgiving From Our Family To Yours 🙂
