November 2013: A Month of Gratitude

When he’d just about hit rock bottom—his business was circling the drain and his marriage already was down it—John Kralik did something radical:  every day for a year, he wrote a thank you note to someone.  365 Thank Yous:  The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life is the book that chronicles that year.

The discipline of expressing gratitude was hard at first—really hard.  As the year wore on, though, after expressing thanks to people he loved, people with whom he was angry, people he didn’t even know, John was changed.  By the end of the year, expressing thanks was no longer an item on his To-Do list, but a habit.  Gratitude had become part of his makeup. 

I’m not at rock bottom—far from it!  But I do believe in the power of living out of a mindset of gratitude.  So, for the month of November, I’ll be blogging about things for which I’m thankful.  I’m going to try to post every day….but you all know I’m not the most consistent blogger in the world      :-/

Hey!  There’s the first thing I’m thankful for—the grace and patience of the two of you who are still reading this blog!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

See you tomorrow…(maybe)…
