There is beauty in simplicity. And that is the wonder of Thanksgiving. It doesn’t ask much of us besides giving thanks for the things that are precious to us….And maybe also gobble up some once-a-year food.
Gratitude is an attitude that has the power to enhance our lives. I like this quote on gratitude by Melody Beattie:
“It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”
And so, this Thanksgiving, I am grateful for many things, including these:
- Family and friends who are always there for me; and
- “Little” things that bring big joy, like a perfect cup of tea, a good book, a good conversation, and seeing that wide-eyed, magical look on a cat’s face.
