"Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude.
Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness.
Thankfulness may consist merely of words.
Gratitude is shown in acts."
~Henry F. Amiel
As most of us jump into the business of Thanksgiving, we might forget to show up for the meaning of this holiday. The busy-ness of shopping, preparing, scheduling, or traveling could dictate our actions while expectation and emotion might dominant our thoughts.
In this next week, let us consciously demonstrate our gratitude by being present, slowing ourselves down, and actively listening to others.
May we participate in "acts of thanks~giving" by honestly expressing our acknowledgement, Gratitude, and Love.
