Every day is gratitude day but it’s important to set  aside a special day to spend with family and friends to celebrate and give thanks for the big and little things and even for the things yet to come. It could be something as huge as world peace.

Some of us, from the moment we open our eyes to when we close them for sleep our thoughts are consumed by lack. So much so that it blocks our vision from seeing all that we have to be thankful for. Even if what you have is as small as a mustard seed – give thanks.


Gratitude is a cosmic magnet – the energy moves through space and time leaving  a positive ripple effect.

Here’s a beautiful, inspirational poem about being thankful that will help you to be in appreciation. Let me know what  you think about it.

Be thankful Poem

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,

If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something

For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.

During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations

Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge

Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes

They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary

Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.

A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are

also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles

and they can become your blessings.
