On this Thanksgiving morning of 2008, I’m reflecting on my Mameta’s last days. I wrote a tribute to her here. It’s also a plea for you to be in touch with the loved ones who pop into your spirit or heart today. I followed such a “pop” and am forever grateful!
We completed a 21 Days of Kindness event last week and what a joy it was!
What a perfect prelude to Thanksgiving. Gratitude is our path to kindness. If we can remain grateful for every moment of life, we will have the lightness of spirit that makes acts of kindness possible.
So today as you gratefully count your blessings, notice how much more easy and natural it is to be kind.
A few quotes to ponder:
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John F Kennedy:
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous & noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.
J A Gaertner
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
Buddha says Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.
I wish you love, peace and joy today and always,
