The Discipline Of Gratitude #WorldGratitudeDay #everydaygratitude

The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy. – Henri Nouwen

The Discipline Of Gratitude

Some of you might remember the Gratitude Circle I used to co-host every month.  I stopped doing that and then my attempt to start a regular gratitude post #everydaygratitude too didn’t take off. Today on World Gratitude Day I’m recommitting to the discipline of gratitude. I’m committing myself to a weekly post every Thursday.  It will have an open linky for the week, and you’re most welcome to join.

While the practice of gratitude continues to be a part of my life, I need to be more focused on sharing how being grateful has saved me.

5 things I’m focusing my gratitude on this week are:

  1. The love and support of my husband – he’s been my rock through the last few months.
  2. The generosity of extended family and friends who have reached out in practical ways through my mother’s illness, death and now my father’s illness.
  3. Great house help – hardworking and smiling.
  4. The affectionate presence of my dogs.
  5. Blogging and the blogging community that keeps me going.

What are you grateful for today?

    I’m grateful for all the strength I posses when the sea is rough. It helps me power through the hardest of times.
    I’m also grateful to the family I have that picks me up every time I stumble and fall.
    I’m grateful to life for being my biggest teacher.
    I’m grateful because I am

    Having known people impacted by both recent hurricanes in the United States (Harvey and Irma) and knowing someone with extensive family in Puerto Rico (Maria), I am grateful for shelter and abundant food.

    We all have so many things to be grateful for. Seldom do we realize how little things we take for granted, contribute to make everyday life smooth. Good of you to start this link up. Hope to join in soon.

    That will be an interesting link up Corinne. Everyone will have something to be grateful for in a week. I will try to join every week.

    I am glad that you restarted #everydaygratitude, Corinne. I have been meaning to write weekly gratitude posts but failing miserably. Even my gratitude journal hasn’t seen new entries recently. I hope your posts will motivate me to write and share mine. Hugs to you. ❤️
