MAY 2018 – Gratefulness

I wanted to chat this month about being grateful; so many of us take appreciation for granted and don’t say thank you enough.  Offering gratitude and thankfulness should occur more than in the month of November, in fact it should occur daily.  Be kind to one another, speak softly and gently, think before you say those words…these are not just proverbs or cliches, but wise words to live by.  How can you show gratitude?  Saying thank you is a beginning but you may need to go further, show your appreciation to those around you…Teachers & Professors, Moms & Dads, Grandparents, Neighbors, Siblings and other Family, Friends, Coworkers, Church workers….who would you thank today!  It doesn’t have to be monetary, it could be using words, homemade gifts, or cash/gift cards in a hand written note.

Show you care, show you are grateful…then budget to do it more often for those you appreciate!!
