I want to share this thought about thankfulness from one of my hero writers, Jill Carattini...

Our complaints are not only
a choice to overlook the good around us,
but the choice not to ask where or from whom our blessings come.

The attitude of thanksgiving, on the other hand, makes the choice to inquire.

Being thankful is therefore always more than a
glib note of gratitude or a warm sentiment in general;
it requires something far more personal.

It not only chooses to recognize the gifts before us,
but recognizes that there must also be a giver.

There is Someone to thank.
There is indeed One from whom all blessings flow.
