Alphabet of Gratitude


We sometimes get so caught up in fear it’s hard to remember all we have to be grateful for. Yet there’s an array of things to fill our hearts with gratitude.



God, I get so shut within the fear
of the future,
or of making a mistake,
or not effectively meeting responsibilities,
that my days becomes stale.
But I can practice gratitude,
and, like opening a window wide,
I’m refreshed by the softness of grace blowing in.



Write down a list of “Gratitude A-B-Cs.” Start with A: What are you grateful for that begins with A? B? Continue through the alphabet. Create even more lightness by asking a family member to join in.
