new personal challenge that I am going to join in on, The Gratitude Challenge.
Feel free to copy these onto your blog and get the challenge out there! If you don't know about the challenge, here's a crash course:
Thanksgiving here in the United States gets lost between Halloween and Christmas. It's become just another day to over-eat and watch football. Sadly, its original purpose--to celebrate and give thanks for the blessings of a plentiful harvest--has been lost. The Gratitude Challenge asks you to make cards and send them to people for whom you are grateful, to those who have contributed to the plentiful harvest of your own life.
Thanksgiving is a good time for Americans and Canadians to do this, but really, shouldn't we ALL express our gratitude for those people in our lives who have made a difference through their love, friendship, kindness, and generosity? You don't have to be in a particular country or faith to do this. Show those whom you love how grateful you are to have them in your life by sending cards. It's easy, and we're making them anyway, right?
Thank you Susan for this timely reminder of what is important, and sharing a way to embrace and share the gratitude that I SHOULD show year round. ;)
