I have friends who give thought each year as to how they might show those around them how grateful they are. They throw a theme party. One year was Love; another was Peace and this year it is Gratitude. It is a unique and special way to give thanks to a group of people, no matter the number of guests.
Here are some ways you might want to use to express gratitude this season of Thanksgiving:
- Create an altar or sacred space for your gratitude and light a candle in honor of those special people in your life.
- Throw your own gratitude party. Whether it is large or intimate, it will be a rewarding experience of bonding in the blessings of family and friends.
- Make a list of the people you wish to thank and perform a random act of kindness in their name. Be sure to include a card or note to them to tell them you are doing this.
These are just a few ways to remember to thank those who have helped us, stood by us, and were there with their support. it doesn't matter whether that support was in a text, in person or on social media. It is the message and the person it came from that we should remember in thanks.
Adopt the attitude of gratitude and you are likely to feel a peaceful calm wash over you as you will usher in a season of positive energy through thanks.
