First, take a minute to be thankful. And be specific. It’s a good time for a list.
Around Oneicity and our house, we’re grateful to the King for His provision and care.
You probably have a similar list of your own. I hope you can find room in the tight spaces of life to say “thanks,” no matter how great your struggle or busy your life. This gratitude thing changes your view of what’s happening around you.
That’s the part of Thanksgiving you probably are good at.
The Harder Second Part:
How about saying “thank you” to the people who serve you and work with you?
This would be a good time for saying “thank you” to the people who make every happen in you life. The people you don’t have to say “thank you” to. We’re surrounded by men and women who make our lives better.
What an amazing thing for you to go out of your way this week to say “thank you” to them? I’ve been thinking about how really thanking people respects them. It changes the dynamic.
You get the idea. Most of us have people around us who are delivering for us day-in and day-out. They’d be blessed by eye contact and a very specific “thank you” for what they do. I still like the formula we came up with for “Good Job Monday.”
I hope gratitude fills your heart and your life. And that you let it spill out…
Oh, and thank you for being on this journey with me. There’s fun stuff ahead. I can’t wait for experience it with you.
So. Are you with me on this grateful kick? I’d love to hear from you if you try thanking the people who serve you. I’d love to know what you’ve experienced when people are thankful for you. Leave a comment here. Pop over to Facebook or give me a shout-out on Twitter. I love hearing from you.
