Giving Thanks with an Attitude of Gratitude

Giving Thanks with an Attitude of Gratitude

This weekend is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.  Not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving, but I do. It’s different for me now because I don’t have much family nearby. In the old days when I was growing up, Thanksgiving was a huge deal. Mom would cook a turkey, and we usually had the company of a family friend at the table. My memories of Thanksgiving take me back to Mom’s homemade sage dressing, trying to stir gravy to get the lumps out and my brother-in-law carving the turkey. Now of course there was often a bottle of Andre’s sparkling wine, or believe it not, good old Baby Duck on the table. Yup, created in the 1970’s, that wine with the little yellow duck on the label was part of the decoration. I think we even had a few dents in the old tile ceiling from the cork hitting the roof.  Then there was the pumpkin pie, and mom made her own crust. I loved that pumpkin pie, but most of all, I loved the company. Four girls at the table and I can guarantee you there were shenanigans. I love those memories. Honestly, they were probably some of the best Thanksgiving moments I had.

Do you need a turkey on the table to be grateful?  Not at all.  An attitude of gratitude can run 365 days of the year. So much to be grateful for, and not just on Thanksgiving Day.

How can you increase your levels of gratitude?  I have some ideas, but you need to listen to my podcast to find out more.  Here is the link and I hope you have a chance to listen!  

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving weekend. If you live far away or don’t celebrate this holiday, I still wish all the best for you and hope you are able to find many things to be grateful for in your day. Happy Thanksgiving!
