Practicing a Heart of Gratitude Now!


I am sure you are aware that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. It’s sort of hard to miss, isn’t it?

Of course, it is a great time to eat all the delicious food and enjoy family, but it is a perfect time to focus on the Thanks and Giving part of the holiday. In keeping with the theme of thankfulness and gratitude,  I have wonderful article that you will enjoy on how to practice gratitude.

Please help me welcome, my guest blogger, Elaine Stores from this grateful mama.  In her article, Elaine tells us  three practical ways that can help increase our awareness of gratitude.  

Elaine writes,


By far, one of my favorite days of the year.

I love all of it; the company, the football, and the food that leaves me in a so-full-I can’t-eat-another-bite food coma.

Thanksgiving is the beginning of the holiday season. It starts a month of time when people are more gracious, more loving, and more grateful.

Of course, Thanksgiving also marks the moment when consumerism is at its highest and people get nasty fighting over parking spots. And despite meals where we sit together and discuss what and who we are thankful for, many of us lose the holiday spirit before we even walk into the first Black Friday sale. People were so intent on SAVING money, they forget to be KIND getting in the door.

I mean, get out of my way, I have gifts to buy!

How silly is it to run over someone else so you can buy a GIFT for someone else?
