Thursday Thought: Every Day Should be Gratiday!
Yes, of course I made the word up!
But it occurred to me over the past week that we really need to be grateful for what we have more than one day a year (Thanksgiving in the U.S.). And I'm sure each reader's culture has at least one holiday that focuses on gratitude, so I hope you can see where I'm going with this.
Why just one day a year? Even if there are a few more ... why so few? What happens to the others? Are they all useless, worthless, not worthy of consideration in our lives?
Do we just endure them until someone or something shakes us awake with constant reminders to be grateful for what we have ... and to not focus so much on what we might not have?
So, I'm proposing that at least one day a week be a day of reflection, of thinking back to the preceding week and realizing all that we have to be grateful for.
This past week I was doubly grateful for my plumber working overtime to help me get my new gas stove (finally have one!) installed, and also taking the time to put in a new under-the-cabinet toe-kicker heater. OK, it's an electric heater, but it makes a huge difference in the front area of my tiny 525 s.f. cottage.
And finally my new gas wall heater has arrived and been installed. Now I've largely switched from the incredibly expensive electric heat the cottage came with to natural gas heat.
Ahhhhhhhhh. Warmth without high costs.
There's no lack of what I can be grateful for -- how about you? What's going on in your life that you're grateful for?

Sad to say, I'm not perfect!
I am certain every language has its own ways that might not make absolute sense in terms of spelling ...
