Goodness and Gratitude (and Thanksgiving)


On Thursday (tomorrow), folks in the United States will be celebrating Thanksgiving.  A day to count blessings.  And, surely, every day is a good day to count blessings.  But sometimes it’s nice to have a reminder.  Thanksgiving might be that reminder for some of us.

Having explored gratitude during Gratitude Week with so many of you, having explored life and self with some of you in Just Five Things…well, my heart is full.  I was witness to incredible compassion and beauty.  Blown away (yet again).

I have great faith in the goodness of humanity.  I see ugly things on the news (I know you do too) and sometimes I cry.  Real tears.  But I will always return to my belief that goodness underscores all.  It’s there.

This week, if you celebrate Thanksgiving…this week, if you do not celebrate Thanksgiving…celebrate the goodness around you.  It’s there; honor it.  Whisper a little prayer.  Give a big hug.  Bow your head or lift your eyes.

Take a moment and feel the goodness (the gratitude) move through your body.  Carry it with you.

Yes, good, carry on.

Happy Thanksgiving.  Happy goodness.
To you and you and you.

sending a little love your way, m

  1. Despite all the ‘stuff’ going on in this world of ours {and boy there’s lots of it}, we REALLY have to find the good. Wishing you and yours a lovely day of giving thanks, dear Michelle xx

  2. Hi, Michelle! and thank you for your words reminding us to celebrate the Good in our lives. Such a thing, not so easy nowadays… but I think that, if we make a shift and instead of being searchers of the Good we turn into FINDERS of, at least, one good thing a day… It will be POSSIBLE!!!
    We don´t celebrate Thanksgiving in Argentina, but for me it´s a daily practice… opening my eyes I say Thank you to the Universe, just because…
    Blessings to you and your tribe!!!
