Acknowledging Gifts

It has become a most overworked expression--gratitude.

Everyday we get to plug away at this thing we call life. As we do, the opportunity to acknowledge tiny and big gifts alike come more often than we think. As we open ourselves to the kindnesses behind such gifts, we allow gratitude to flow from deep within us
 
Thanksgiving is that special season when we can admit that the year hasn't been all bad. Some good things have blessed us. We have even blessed others  with an occasional gift of our own.  And yes, it felt good to do so. We acknowledge that receiving gifts, to say the least, is satisfying. Giving gifts  may be even better. Gratefulness--it is that special way of simply being human.

Happy Thanksgiving!
