Today, I’m grateful for Thanksgiving Day and the completion of a year of traveling the Spiral path of Gratitude.
It began on Thanksgiving Day 2019 and has come, day by day, to Thanksgiving Day 2020. As I stated in the first Gratitude Spiral post, I wanted “to come around to gratitude over and over again, but be moved forward or outward, like a spiral.” I was aiming for a new place. A more grateful and appreciative place. And I think that’s where I’ve landed. What about you?
Today, I’m grateful for all of you who read this blog.
I appreciate that you are reading this Gratitude Spiral, whether you’ve followed it from the beginning or joined in somewhere along the way. I hope you’ve been encouraged to consider what you’re most grateful for in your lives. And I’d like to know…
Today, I’m grateful for the way Covid-19 has taught us all to appreciate people and things we used to take for granted.
Doctors, nurses, and all healthcare workers, supermarket employees, teachers, childcare workers, hairstylist, and many others have earned our respect and admiration, not to mention our gratitude, for all they do. Family, friends, and members of our clubs and classes and choirs, that we saw on a regular basis last year, are now on our lists of people we miss and can’t wait to see again. And we appreciate them all the more. Let’s hope this lesson of gratitude and appreciation is not lost on us when the danger of Covid-19 is behind us.
