According to a Harvard publication,

In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions , relish good experiences , improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.




Post Covid and in our world filled with daily challenges, sometimes it's hard to remember reasons to be grateful

The author from provides food for thought...

I am Thankful From 1 Thessalonians 5:"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." Give thanks. Hmmmm. What does that mean?

I AM THANKFUL FOR the teenager who is not doing dishes but is watching T.V., because that means she is at home and not on the streets.

I AM THANKFUL FOR the taxes I pay, because it means I am employed.

I AM THANKFUL FOR the mess to clean after a party, because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

I AM THANKFUL FOR the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.

Marie's Thoughts on Gratitude and Thanksgiving.
I AM THANKFUL FOR the raw emotions felt when leaving my homeland and all possessions behind, because it means new beginning and the foundation of new roots in a new country.

I AM THANKFUL FOR the years spent at the Ketcham House, the toil of shoveling snow and maintaining the property, because it means I have enjoyed the amazing opportunity to be caretaker of an amazing relic of American history.

I AM THANKFUL FOR the fatigue I sometimes feel after working on neighborhood projects, because I get the remarkable opportunity to learn about my community AND get to meet my neighbors.

I AM THANKFUL FOR that good humour remains even after memory loss, because laughter brings such great joy to life and living.

That said..
