5 Minutes of Gratitude

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States and I’m sure many people started their day working on today’s big meal.

I’m fortunate enough to have a father who loves to cook — he even worked in a restaurant back in the day — and handles our holiday meals. My job is just to be the hostess with the mostest.

Since I cleaned my house yesterday and will set the table while Daddy’s dressing is in the oven, I was able to spend Thanksgiving morning actually giving thanks. My Start Today journal prompts me to list five things I’m grateful for each day, but today I wanted to do more. Today I wanted to try five minutes of gratitude instead.
