It is the season for gratitude, an emotion that unfortunately does not seem to come naturally for us. But we can intentionally choose to be grateful.
As we celebrate American Thanksgiving with gratitude and thanksgiving, many books come to mind. Here are a few of my favourites.
Ann Voskamp’s wonderful book One Thousand Gifts;
Janice Kaplan’s recent book The Gratitude Diaries
Brother David Steidl-Rast’s Gratefulness, The Heart of Prayer
And if you want an inspiring short meditation on gratitude, as a prelude to your Thanksgiving meal, nothing can beat this video by Brother David Steindl-Rast.
