The ability to show gratitude helps us combat cynical thoughts that can trample our personal happiness. By fostering a conscious practice of gratitude, our children begin to see that outside of their inner world, people are generally kind, thoughtful and helpful.

How do you practice gratitude in your home? Please share your tips, ideas, photos and stories in the comments below.

Thank you for being part of my community! I love sharing what I learn with you and hearing what you have to say about ways we can all relate to one another in a more mindful, meaningful way.

…Because better communication really does build stronger families and communities.

Wishing you a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!

I keep a gratitude journal and we talk about gratitude at family dinners-not always but sometimes.

That’s great, Sue. I find that, for the most part, gratitude conversations seem to happen organically in our house. BTW, I also keep a gratitude journal! Love that!
