One of the most essential life lessons I have tried to share with my 3 kids has been the importance of being grateful and gracious. It doesn’t take much to say thank you and be grateful for what you have.
It’s the little things in life that matter most, don’t you think?
Family and friends that love you.
Food on the table. Low FODMAP, preferably! Ha!
A roof over your head.
Oh…and a good attitude helps too. Focusing on what you have in your life rather than what you don’t.
Sharing your appreciation for those that make your day a little bit brighter or easier can go very, very far. I think it makes you a whole lot happier too when you share your grateful heart.
You alone have the ability to make someone feel appreciated and important…by simply opening you mouth and uttering the words thank you. How easy is that? 🙂
Being gracious and grateful, to me, is the essence of living a fulfilling life.
