This time of year, I begin to get excited about preparing for the holidays. And, then. I realize how much there is to prepare. So, I am making a conscious effort to slow down, not over-schedule and make time each day this month to focus on gratitude.
I am going to also try a quiet experiment. Each morning, I am going to let each of my boys know 1 thing about them that I am grateful for. It might be that they cleared the table without my asking. Or, for always making me laugh. Or doing something thoughtful for their brother. But, I’m not going to tell them what I’m doing. I want to try and instill in them an attitude of gratitude. And, at the same time, I want to walk the talk.
So, who can you make a focused effort of gratitude towards? It can be your secret. But, I’d love to know if you see some results.
Oh, and before I forget. I’m grateful for you. Thank you for reading, commenting or mentioning a post when I see you. It’s amazing what kind of affect you can have on someone…and you may not even know it.
