This November, I'm giving lots of thanks in three ways.
First, my mom and I are making Thanksgiving Cards and giving them to friends. Inside the card, it says "I thank God for you! We also look at our friends in the eyes and say those words. People keep those cards that my mother colors for years.
Second, I'm writing letters to the bosses of the nursing home staff, thanking those nurses and CNAs for the care that they receive. What a surprise it is when I walk up to a boss and tell them that I want to talk to them about one of their nurses. They automatically think the worse! Then to have the letter to go into the person's file will remind that person for years to come that they are appreciated.
Third, I have also brought in some of my ladybug hats for people who have little kids in their lives. Sometimes I bring in healthy food for them. We all need a treat, and to be reminded that we are appreciated.
Giving thanks to people and to God has changed my life. My own attitude is better, and I'm a happier person just because I took the time and energy to give thanks.
What are you thankful for today?
