Being Thankful Throughout the Year

The ongoing theme this year has been
intentional simplicity.
Showing gratitude is a way to manifest this philosophy.
I was browsing this website
and came across these notecards.


I thought it would be a great idea to print some out
and distribute them all year long, not just at Thanksgiving.
So, that's what I'm doing.
Any time someone shows a courtesy or kindness
toward me or my boy,
I'm gonna hand them one of these.
A librarian, a postal clerk, a cashier,
a neighbor or a friend are all possible recipients.

At times I write to companies
just to tell them how much I appreciate their product.
With all the allergies we have,
it's great to be able to find something
that makes my cooking and baking easier.

Or sometimes I'll find a product that's actually
still made in the USA!

Now I have a notecard that I just have to fill in.
Can't get easier than that!

Gratitude is a conscious effort.

Gratitude is the heart's memory.


I know I'm grateful for this weekend.
Enjoy it,  y'all!
