Buying Gratitude …

Nov 08, 2020 01:14PM ● By Annette Briggs

Greetings loyal readers! Of course, you would have to be living under a rock in the middle of nowhere to not know what makes November so special. This month, and of course culminating into an all-important day of recognition, is all about being thankful, or, in a word … grateful. Reflecting on gratitude, American author Melody Beattie, so poignantly stated: “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” I’m buying what Beattie is selling.

Friends, please let these words reverberate in your heart and mind. At this critical time in our history, with so much division, rancor and unacceptance in our world … a good helping of gratitude needs to be added to the holiday menu. 

With gratitude,

Annette Briggs
