Happy Thanksgiving!

Are you a “Thanks” giver or a “Thanks” taker?
Do you give your “Thanks” easily and often?
Or are you seeking approval, appreciation and gratitude from others?

Gratitude is the most powerful cure for depression, hopelessness, loneliness, negativity.
Gratitude heals fear and hurt, anger and resentment.
Gratitude opens the mind to joy, spirituality and creativity.
Giving “Thanks” is a gift to the giver.

Life is for giving.
You are the gift.
It is in giving the gift of your self and your gratitude
That you realize the gift of Love you are.
Give Thanks easily and often.
Feel how present you are.
For to be grateful is to be present.
To be present is to give the gift of your Presence.
So be Thankful for you and thankful for now.

I am thankful for you.
You are there right now with me, as I receive this reminder.
I am thankful for this moment, easily flowing the words I hear.
I am thankful for this computer, so I can quickly share with you the Love I feel.
I am grateful for this and present, natural and alive.
I am grateful we are together on this planet, to learn and love, to laugh and let go.
I am grateful for the full moon, the sun and the stars, the majesty of the Universe.
I so appreciate awakening each day to whatever comes, myriad opportunities to love.
I appreciate the air I breathe, the water I drink and cleanse my body, the food I eat with respect.
I appreciate the many ways I am given to love, to serve to remember the Oneness of it all.
I appreciate my body for being a useful tool for extending love.
I appreciate my mind for creating endless ways to communicate love.
I appreciate my Spirit for inspiring me to share abundantly the hope and faith and Love I know.
I am so grateful the more I give, the more I have.
The more I have the more I give.
And so Love grows.

I am thankful to be in Loving communication with you Now and Always.
