Do you have a passion for reading? I do. One of my favorite books is One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. It seems appropriate to share this little gem at Thanksgiving. Truly, we all have reason to give thanks.
Ann’s life has not been easy. Her sister was crushed under a truck right in front of her. Her mother suffered from mental illness. Like most of us who have lived long enough, she has endured pain and loss. But, Ann has found a way to find joy and to give thanks.
In One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, Ann strives to find the meaning of life. She discovers the long forgotten wonder that comes through thankfulness.
Focus On Gratitude
How do we live fully? Thankfully? It’s through the expression of gratitude for the life we already have! By embracing everyday blessings and chronicling the gifts we have, we discover that through gratitude our lives are fuller. Richer. Happier.
If you want to increase your level of happiness, start with gratitude. Make a list. Can you reach 1000 reasons you have to be thankful? Start now. It will change your life. It changed mine.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Grateful!
