It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S. so it seemed an appropriate time to talk about the attitude of gratitude.
I have much to be grateful for this year, despite some personal angst going on in my life.
I just noticed that it’s been one month since my last blog post, which is not surprising considering the fact that I had to fly across the country to be with my sister, who had been hospitalized with complications from cancer. Needless to say, I’ve been preoccupied. The good news is that she is home now. I am helping to take care of her because she can no longer walk on her own, and she has no other family besides me!
I don’t want this blog article to be seen as a pity party. As I said at the beginning, I have much to be grateful for right now. I am grateful that I can be here to support my sister in this journey, and that my profession allows me to work and serve my clients, even while I’m taking care of her.
I’m also so grateful for my family who are supportive of me, and understand that this is precious time that I need to spend with my big sister.
I’m grateful for loving friends, my awesome clients and you, my dear blog readers. You are the reason why I’m spending a few minutes this Thanksgiving Day on this article. I value your support, your comments, and your time spent reading these articles as well as sharing them with your followers.
My lesson today for you this Thanksgiving Day is to be mindful of the blessings in your life. Cultivate an attitude of gratitude every day. You never know what tomorrow will bring. The more you can be grateful for the gifts you have, I believe the more gifts will be given to you to enjoy and to share with others.
