Last year I started a gratitude journal for Thanksgiving, where it gets passed to each person attending, for them to write down what they are thankful for this year. I wanted to start this tradition so the kids then the grand kids would have a keepsake to look back on and hopefully keep up within their own families. It's just another way to express the day in writing. I wasn't sure if the idea would go over or not, but to my surprise everyone took a page and left heart felt thanks that I'm sure they will enjoy reading again this year before they claim a new page for a new year. I've been keeping a gratitude journal ever since I discovered Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach, I love her books!
Today's gratitude moment is for work, everyday I hear about layoffs, three just this morning, and no one is spared. I have a cleaning service so my jobs are take them when you get them, I've been blessed to have been able to keep the business going for 13 yrs. now, even if it's just me. But this business is so iffy at times but I'm thankful for every house to clean. I'm also thankful that my hubby is still working, alot have been laid off already there so his number is getting closer, but I'm thankful and I pray that we can hang on....like so many others!
