Mailbox Monday: The Power of Gratitude

One of the things I’ve learned since one of the lights went out of my life, otherwise known as my little kitty died, is to be grateful for the time I had with her. I’m reading The Power of Gratitude by Lamees A and I already know this book is a keeper. Maybe not one I’ll read cover to cover but one I will pick up and read passages from more than once.

Among the quotes from extraordinary individuals in the book, part of George Washington’s proclamation of the First Thanksgiving caught my eye:

“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will,to be grateful for His benefits….”

If George Washington, Winston Churchill, and Oprah found power in gratitude, what’s stopping us from practicing it?

Here is a description of The Power of Gratitude from Amazon:

“In today’s highly consumerist society, where possessing a killer instinct is considered a great asset, and quarterly growth figures are a measure of a nation’s standing internationally; does gratitude have any place at all?

What is gratitude? Learn how gratitude empowers, how it affects society, its place in religion, and why gratitude is so important.

Gratitude can be learned. Inside are ten steps you can take to incorporate gratitude into your life. Additionally, there are some behaviors to avoid if we truly want to enhance our process of learning gratitude, as well as exercises to really incorporate gratitude into your life.

Read about real-life gratitude stories from the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Winston Churchill, and Ronald Reagan.

Enjoy the gratitude poems in this book. Use them to increase gratitude in your life, even when you don’t feel grateful.”
