Thanksgiving Thought #1


Thanksgiving Week ushers in my annual contemplation on gratitude. For many reasons, this year has been a study in learning to accept and appreciate both the good things and the seemingly bad ones. This Ralph Waldo Emerson quote has never been far from my side: "Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
