Gratitude Should be a Daily Thing

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen for this post is a lovely 3 minute clip that I found very inspirational and hope you do as well! Spencer West is a man with a disability who shows us that we are all able, we just have different ways of doing things.  Enjoy!

I entitled my post "Gratitude should be a daily thing", because I really feel that it should be.  We Canadians already celebrated our Thanksgiving in October and my neighbours in the U.S. are celebrating it this week.  For myself, if I am able to look at people and things in my life in a positive way and be grateful for the people and things around me every day it is good for both my mental and physical health. It helps me to be calmer and happier!  I truly feel blessed!

On the topic of gratitude I would like to tell you all how much I appreciate your visits and kind comments on my blog posts.  I am very grateful to have such wonderful friends and fellow bloggers, so thank you so much for being there! Merci! Grazie!  Gracias!

Thanks so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  5. Inspiration in millions, and gratitude, that works in reverse too. I'm sure so many of us here are always ever grateful for our friends, their caring, their sharing, and their words. So little can mean so very much to another. Fond greetings, Jean.

  11. Hi, LInda! Thank you for sharing that video! And thanks for visiting my blog where I leave my drawings. I have a blog with my travels too, El Mundo en mi Maleta (you can see it on the right, next to my others blogs of photography and drawings), and I invite you to see it, if you want, of course :)

    Have a good Sunday. Here, in Madrid, very sunny.

  12. It's American Thanksgiving this week, so I know gratitude is on the minds of many at this time of year. However, you are right, we should try to make it a daily thing!

  24. It can be an easy thing to lose sight of what we have to be thankful for even though it's right in front of our faces. Thanksgiving is right on the horizon for us...perfect time to remember...God is good!
