World Gratitude Day
Sunday, September 23, 2018
This is our assignment for the Aspire and Inspire sparkteam:
September 21st was World Gratitude Day. The United Nations Meditation Group created World Gratitude Day to express appreciation for the great things that individuals and groups do. This recognition is on a global basis. According to their website: "World Gratitude Day presents an award to someone who they feel has done something outstanding in the spirit of Globalism." What are some of the things or people you are grateful for?
I am grateful for many things, too many to express, but here are five of them. I am grateful for my family. My parents, my sister, my nephew, my aunt, and I all live in the same town, and so we are fortunate to be able to see each other often. I am grateful for my cat. He is very sweet. I just found out a couple of days ago that he has cancer, so I am very sad, but also very grateful to have had him as long as I have (about 15 years). I am grateful for God and my church. I am very active in my church’s music ministry, and really get a lot out of it. I am grateful for my health. I have been ill in the past, and really appreciate my current good health. Finally, I am grateful for SparkPeople. The resources and support here are awesome.
