The Gratitude Does Not Need To End 

 

The Gratitude Does Not Need To End It's December 1 and the Novermber 2019 Thanksgiving Gratitude Challenge is another chapter in the chronicles of ActveRain history.  But you know, the gratitude need not end. 

 

I read many of the posts written for this challenge.  Once again, I am amazed at the thankfulness expressed by this membership in so many different ways. 

 

When this challenge was announced, many post ideas quickly came to mind.  I know I have much to be thankful and I was sure I was not alone.  That became evident quickly as I began to read submissions.

 

But I wanted to express some things in a bit different way.  Twisted some might say and I did use that exact word in a comment on a post by Kathy Streib.  She corrected me on a reply comment.  Not twisted but "unique" she wrote.  You see, Kathy is not only an AR Ambassador but also a helluva diplomat.  I  digress. 

 

The opportunities to be grateful are abundant.   But the gratitude does not need to stop just because a challenge has ended.   Let it continue...  Let it become a part of your "routine" and everyday life

Shirley Coomer - it seems as if you have much to be grateful and the right attitude as you continue forward.  Good for you.

Yes! Most definitely! I am making an effort to tell both my children something I am grateful for every day ... I want them to see that I am noticing all they do, and appreciate who they are (becoming). 

Also, just bought a few bottles of German mulled wine to hand out as a Thank You to my favorite peeps.

Andrea Bedard - you definitely have the right "spirit"(no pun intended) with sharing and showing gratitude to those closest to you.

So true, Michael Jacobs. If you begin every day with gratitude and end it the same way you cannot have a bad day! Well, we all have bad days from time to time, but if you take the time to reflect upon the abundance in your life, I assure you it far outweighs the negatives. There is a limitless supply of things to be thankful and grateful for.

Greg Mona - although there is bad or less than ideal that enters our world, I believe we succeed by accentuating the positive...  You're absolutely correct in indentifying the abundance of good that makes it better to thankful and grateful.

Like L. Scott Ferguson, I start my day with them, each and every day of the year and no, we should never stop being thankful just because Thanksgiving and the 'Month of Thankfulness' has passed us by! 

Love Kathy's response too - sound like a Kathy comment! ❤️ her!

Here, here. Each day begins with an email exchange with a friend. We express gratitude to one another - it's a promise we both made to one another - a form of thankfulness accountability. And somehow, writing it out gives it more feelings.

Michael, I couldn’t agree with you more!  We are all so grateful at Thanksgiving, but then we are off into the holidays and we have completely overlooked what we were just so thankful for.  Let’s remember to be grateful and thankful the entire year
