A Week of Thanksgiving…

grat·i·tude

–noun

the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful: He expressed his gratitude to everyone on the staff.

In light of the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend I have decided to do a daily post on the things in my life that I am have gratitude for and am thankful for. I think its always important for us to focus on what we have rather then what we don’t have. If you are a person who judges the worth of your self by the objects that you have, the cars that you drive, the money in your bank then I challenge you this week to dig deeper, look around you, and reflect about the good fortune in your life that is not amounted in any bank account or material object.

This week and perhaps always…allow yourself to be defined by your gratitude and a spirit of thanksgiving…not by the standards that are created by society. Throughout this week I hope to share with you some of the things in my own life that I have made me full of gratitude.

  1. I totally agree with you. I’ve been reading the book that the movie The Other Side of Heaven is based on and it’s amazing to me how the Tongans culturally collect (collected? It’s been a while since Elder Groberg served his mission there) people and relationships rather than things like we do. I think they are the smart ones!
