Those who stay on the treadmill of busyness miss the really beautiful moments. So, in the season named THANKSgiving, I ask myself, “Who am I thanking?” In my college years, many people were extra kind to me with tips. My eyes fill with tears today as I remember their generosity. One of the pastors from my church handed me a crisp $100 bill after I waited on him and his wife for dinner. I still remember their kindness. My father-in-law used to carry a hidden $100 to give someone in need. Anyone that knew him remembers his generous love for people. Here are 5 ideas for a better THANKSgiving.
Thanks giving leads to experiencing the nearness of JOY in our everyday living. It is the not-so-secret secret of boundless enjoyment and satisfaction. The season of Thanksgiving offers a reminder to practice the habits that inhabit our natural responses.
Transform the mood of a conversation or a gathering by sharing your gratitude and asking others to do the same. The ardor of joy leads to irresistible cheerfulness.
