Giving Thanks!

It’s that time of the year to began to think about all the good things in our life.  Appreciation and gratitude are similar.  Appreciation is the act of acknowledging the goodness in life by seeing the positives in events, experiences, or other people. Whereas, gratitude recognizes how the positive things in our lives are often due to forces outside of ourselves, particularly the efforts of other people.

A preoccupation with the self and a feeling that the world owes us something can cause us to forget our positives and all the people who help us and therefore cause us to feel that we have no reason to feel thankful.

This is where humility is important to gratitude because humble people are grounded in the truth that they need others.  We depend on parents, friends, our pets and many others to provide what we cannot provide for ourselves.  Being grateful requires that we understand the connection between being givers and receivers.

As we head into another holiday season, lets remember to express thankfulness and appreciation in all parts of our lives as we give and receive.

Have a gracious Thanksgiving!
