With all that is going on in the world right now, I am feeling an increased need to focus on the good.
And some days it takes a bit of work to find it. I have been constantly reminding myself that gratitude and joy are a CHOICE I get to make. Each and every day.
In an April 2014 talk, President Utchdorf asks us, “Have we not reason to be filled with gratitude, regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves?”
No matter the circumstances we find ourselves in – we can always find a reason to be grateful.
Sometimes we may have to search deep inside, but with some effort, we can always find those blessings.
We can always CHOOSE to be grateful.
Practicing gratitude requires recognizing our blessings. These little “choose to be grateful” strips make a cute way to record those blessings!
These are great for any time you’re wanting to ponder on the blessings you have, but are especially perfect for Thanksgiving.
The cute little cards are just the size to put at each Thanksgiving place setting. Your family members can each take a few minutes to record the things they’re grateful for. Then, display them in a place everyone can see. Or go around the table and have everyone take turns sharing a few of the things they’re grateful for – and why.
May there be lots of gratitude and smiles around your Thanksgiving table this year.
