I love this holiday. It's not really because of its historical significance, which can sometimes be contentious, but because of its message about being thankful for all we have.
This past year, I began a daily practice of posting to social media one thing I'm grateful for each day. The result of that has been surprising--I discovered the true abundance in my life of things I'm thankful for. The list is truly endless!
Also, like the quote above, making a daily practice of gratitude has opened my heart even more to the many gifts this life holds and how they permeate everything.
Thanks today especially to all of the people who take the time to read this blog and to be in touch with me, whether it's through here, through social media, e-mail, or even (gasp!) in person, I so appreciate the love and kindness we share...today and every day.
