This morning I committed to finishing off the Thank You notes for my daughter’s baby gifts. In my haste (there is only so much you can do during one’s baby’s nap!), I ended up making an extra Thank You note. Here I was with this extra note lying around: “Thank you very much for the ______________. Hope all is well. Best….” (And yes, as an aside, I do recommend making templates to save you physical and mental energy!)
And then I thought, maybe that’s what Gratitude is all about. Writing that extra note. Intentionally. Thanking G-d for what you got, even BEFORE you get it. And maybe, just maybe, that VERY act invites Him to give you more to be thankful for!
