Wow, did we go through a whole cycle of the moon already? It seems like a minute ago we were here, spreading the good news, uplifting each other and ourselves. And given that this time around the We Are the World Blogfest, (#WATWB) is the day after Thanksgiving, it’s only appropriate that this post is one of giving thanks. Here are three stories of thanks-giving that I’d like to share:
The first is about a Brazilian couple who met their future dog on their wedding day. The dog, a stray, crashed the wedding and then, despite being shown to the door a time or two, stuck around for the nuptials and even took a nap on the bride’s veil. Check the story out here:
Want more inspiration? The Greater Good magazine out of Berkeley, California offers tips on becoming more grateful. Check them out here:
And finally, one of the most forward thinkers of our time offers us “The Thanksgiving Reader” for those who want to immerse themselves in family, gratitude, and possibilities.
The quotes and thoughts therein will provide inspiration for making a ruckus of a grateful noise around your Thanksgiving table.
I know these stories will provide your heart with the lift it needs.
In case you forgot the guidelines for #WATWB, here they are again:
