"When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed."
Each day you have the opportunity to choose your attitude. This Thanksgiving, choose to be cheerful and grateful. You've got nothing to lose.
Look for opportunities to serve. Not just at soup kitchens, but in your own backyard. Offer a ride to that friend with the three kids.
Just wash the dishes without being asked. Yes, even those grimy pots with the baked in crud.
If Uncle Billy still insists on calling you by the wrong name and you told him 100 times. He's probably not going to stop now. Just smile, say hi and move on. If he's doing it on purpose, don't give him the satisfaction of letting him know it really bothers you.
If someone gives you something you really don't like. Just say thank you and yes, you guessed it move on. Most of the time, it really is the thought that counts.
By giving cheerfully and accepting gratefully we all get to be a bit happier. And that's one of the best blessings ever!
I'm grateful that all my kids are in the same state and that we get to break bread together this Thanksgiving.
How about you? What are you grateful for? Please let me know in the comments below.
Happy Thanksgiving from Fly Me To The Moon!
