He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has. Epictetus

One of the great things about life is that at every point, Spirit gives you a reason to be grateful if you have the heart to see. Gratitude is an attitude of the heart emphasizing your relationship with the abundant giver of all of life. Thanksgiving is a pure vibration. In the God-given gift of 86,400 seconds today, will you use any of them to say thank you? If you forget to be appreciative for the small gifts in your life, you won’t be given much to be thankful for. Aldous Huxley made an interesting observation: “Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.” What comes to mind is a Chinese proverb that states, “When eating bamboo sprouts, remember the man who planted them.”

When you’re really thankful, you can’t help but want to share the abundant blessings. It’s important to remember in all things to give thanks. Thanksgiving is that pure, vibrational, bountiful seed that when planted will grow into abundant joy as your life. Allow gratitude to sweep through your life and attract blessings like bees to honey.

Spiritual Contemplation: Take some time today to fill your heart with the pure vibrational energy of gratitude. Look upon the many abundant blessings you presently have gracing your world. Write those thank-you notes today. Make some calls and let people know how much you appreciate them.

Affirmation: I have so much to be grateful for in my life now!
