The Season of Thanksgiving: Embracing Gratitude and Humility

“‘Thank you‘ is the best prayer that anyone could say.  I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.”
~ Alice Walker 

As we begin the season of  Thanksgiving in America, it is important to remember, respect and show compassion to all those who do not have the luxury of a warm meal, a place they call home, or the safety net of a regular income stream. It’s a time to remember to be grateful for the blessings that we have…. what we take for granted are often luxuries to the less fortunate. 

It’s a time to reflect and think about how you could make a difference, a dent in this insidious epidemic that is Hunger.

Check out the Philanthropy page of my blog if you are interested in learning more about how you can help fight hunger in your community, and what wonderful work is being done by three well-respected hunger relief organizations in the United States, Canada and around the world.

Gratitude…

I, for one, bow my head in thanks for the sweetness and light of my family, friends and my beloved “children” (my pets). 

Humility not always palatable for many.

There are those who are, by nature, humble. Then there are others who have learned how to be humble. I fall in the latter category. I truly admire people who fall in the first category.

I guess we are all a Work in Progress…

Thank you for stopping by.

Cheers,
Heather
