Happy Thanksgiving !
Experiencing Infinite Gratitude
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and is traditionally a time for sharing our favorite holiday meals with friends and family. It is a time to show appreciation for our loved ones and express gratitude for what we do have. Even if we cannot see our loved ones face-to-face this year, we can share our love through social media, phone calls, and good old-fashioned cards and letters. Thanksgiving and Christmas is also a time for helping those less fortunate than ourselves, although this is something needed year-round as well. Local food banks, shelters, and other community resources are excellent ways to help those in need through making donations or volunteering our time. Because of Covid19, there are some restrictions in place, so it is important to contact the local resource directly and find out the best way to help. The following are some words of wisdom from Unity’s Daily Word about gratitude:
“Whenever I am the recipient of a gift, a kind gesture, or a warm thought from another, I feel grateful. I want to express that gratitude, so I allow feelings of appreciation to well up in my heart. I radiate thanksgiving and gratitude not only to those who have blessed me with kindness, but to all of humanity. My grateful heart inspires me to give in return. Gratitude is a spiritual practice that attunes my heart and mind to love, joy, kindness, and compassion. As I express deep gratitude by sharing my feelings of appreciation, I add to the good of the world.”
