Thankfulness is being grateful for what we have. It is an attitude of gratitude for learning, loving and being. Appreciate the little things that happen around you and within you every day. Think positively. Thankfulness brings contentment.


You are practicing thankfulness when you:


  • Are thankful for the gifts of life. 
  • Appreciate your own abilities instead of envying others.
  • See the difficulties of life as opportunities to learn.
  • Enjoy your sense of wonder about the beauty in the world.
  • Are willing to receive what others want to give.
  • Count your blessings every day.




I am thankful for the many gifts within me and around me today. I appreciate my life. I look for the lessons I expect the best.


I found this Virtue of the Week in my local heresthescoop.com issue & it came at a very much needed time. This Virtue of the Week came from www.virtuesproject.com. Everyday I try to teach my kid’s how important it is to be thankful for what we have been blessed with. This is one area that is very, very important to me. Every single day I count my blessings & thank GOD for them.


We are coming into a very busy time of the year & this year I want to share the true meaning of Christmas with my kid’s, not the commercialized Christmas but, the spiritual Christmas that is very near to my heart but, has taken a spot on the back burner for the last decade. I want my kid’s to understand that Christmas is a very special time of year and I want to bring back those Family traditions that we once shared a long time ago.
