The Promise of Gratitude


As we celebrate the holidays forthcoming, especially with Thanksgiving upon us, may we make the promise to be grateful for all we have.

Gratitude for health.

Gratitude for family.

Gratitude for blessings.

Gratitude for trials which make us stronger, which make us more grateful for the good times.

There is nothing more attractive than gratitude.  When I have served someone and they thank me to the degree that I want to thank them for how they thank me, that is the amount of gratitude I’m talking about.  Layer upon layer of gratitude, like a stack of donuts with raspberries on top.  Mmmmmm.  A long standing ovation.  A hug that lasts longer than the regular two taps on the back.

Imagine if we were all so gracious, grateful, and expressed such to each person we met, every client that uses our services, every person we work with?  This world is different when we commit to gratitude.

When our children offer their gratitude for a gift given, or just with help on homework and making sense out of life, it makes us feel we have great worth.

As we bow our heads and thank the Creator of us all, may we be mindful of the promise of gratitude which extends beyond our business, beyond our homes, and be grateful people in this society and world.

My gratitude to you, reader, for without you I have no reason to continue writing.  Happy Thanksgiving.  Thank you for joining me on this journey, as John Lennon said in “Grow Old With Me”, “….the best is yet to be.”

    Thanks Jason! If there is one thing I hope to have instilled in my children, it is to have a constant ‘Attitude of Gratitude’. I have much to be grateful for…and I am hoping they always feel the same! On that note, I am grateful for you and the way you have served me as well in our family’s time of need. Thank you!
