Let’s Be Grateful

As we approach Thanksgiving, the reminders to give thanks and remember our blessings surround us. We have cute lists and placards and prompts which encourage us to give thanks. This habit of being thankful is good and right, but I wonder if lost in the habit of it all, is the attitude of actually being grateful.

So this Thanksgiving, let us not just give thanks, let us be grateful. This may require some slowing of life and sitting in the silences to allow the noise of the season to calm so your soul can hear the whispers of gratitude. Let us slow and be silent, and may gratitude become our new habit.
