Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving.  What is the first thing that comes to your head when you think about this holiday?  Is it turkey?  Family?  Traditions?  An attitude of gratitude?

This month, I have been posting a picture a day of blessings in my life, some were a little silly and some a little more serious.  I’ve had to take a reprieve from the daily postings because I don’t have my camera connection with me at the moment.  I’ve been feeling guilty, not posting like I was.  My stress level was rising.

Then I stepped back to look at what I was doing.  I was treating gratitude like a trendy commodity.  There is nothing wrong with being thankful for what you have, but it was all about the presentation.  It was about the clever words and perfected pictures.

I will probably catch up with my pictures this month, but hopefully I can keep this thought in mind.

My thankfulness should be more than a 30 day list of blessings.  It’s more than lip service on a Thursday afternoon.  It’s about my words and my actions.  It’s living a life of continued gratitude.  And it’s something I am still learning every day.
