Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others. Cicero

I am grateful for those of you who read my posts and follow this blog. I'm giving away my Becoming Free, A Woman's Guide to Inner Strength as a thank you. Leave a comment to enter the drawing. I'm grateful you dropped by.

Some thoughts on gratitude

Enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. I love the fall colors

Spend a day giving thanks for the beauties around you.
1.                  Sit on the patio and enjoy the last of the warm sunshine.
2.                  Notice the birds in your area and appreciate their beauty.

Be grateful for your friends.
1.                  I don't know about you, but my friends keep me going.
2.                  Send emails to your friends, thanking them for their love.
3.                  Compliment each of your friends during the day.  

Thank family members for all they do for you.
1.                  Have a Secret Pal week in your family.
2.                  Make 'I love you' cards.
3.                  Hug everyone at least twice a day.

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

Have a great day! Christy

  7. I love that quote from JFK, it's one I've never heard before. We have a little plaque on our entry table that I get out the second Halloween is over - it says "An attitude of gratitude brings joy." I try to live by that throughout the year, especially when I'm feeling overwhelmed with all life throws at me some days. Striving to live a grateful life brings much needed peace. I love your blog Aunt Chris and you too.
