Happy Sunday to you!

I am a resident of the United States. In our society, the word ‘DESERVE’ is overused. People feel an entitlement to the things they possess and even things they do not possess. For this reason, I place much importance on this exercise. The weekly gratitude list is a powerful tool that refocuses our perspective. It reminds us that we do not deserve any of the blessings we receive. It reminds us of our connection to human beings all throughout the world—that one life is not more valuable than another. The gratitude list urges us not to take any good for granted.

It has been quite awhile since I’ve completed the exercise on this platform. What a sad confession! The gratitude list is the foundation of this website. I know for certain that thanksgiving has propelled me into many open doors. Thanksgiving has transformed the way I view God, the way I see myself, and the way I interact with others. Thanksgiving is necessary! So appreciate all the persons in your life who call you to a life of gratitude.
