To live gratitude is to touch heaven.

It is necessary, then,
to cultivate the habit of being grateful
for every good thing that comes to you,
and to give thanks continuously.
And because all things
have contributed to your advancement,
you should include all things in your gratitude.

As those of us in the U.S. gather with family or friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope all of us can take a moment to ponder the things, events, and people we are grateful for. The efforts becomes even more worthwhile when you can remember to appreciate the objects, savor the memories, and tell those precious souls how much we value their presence in our lives.
If you need an extra boost of GRATITUDE for yourself or others, remember that our searchable archives include a Thanksgiving-themed issue for each of the previous 8 years of Ripples:
