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?
