Today for 31 Days of 5 Minute Free Writes , the theme is THANKS.
This word is appropriate as Canadians just celebrated Thanksgiving this past weekend. I certainly had lots to celebrate :
~time with family
~a big turkey dinner, with all the trimmings
~and especially pumpkin pie with whipped cream
~and of course, leftovers!
Giving thanks is something we all need to do every day. When I spent time every morning writing out what I was thankful for, I felt more positive and accepting.
An attitude of gratitude certainly changes our lives – for the better.
When we count our blessings, we see an abundance in our lives, rather than a lack.
Gratitude really does change everything.
