Say Thank You

Say Thank You

Gratitude, they say, is the highest form of prayer. It's also the most difficult when I'm in a depressive cycle or feel a panic attack coming on. During Lent, I try to pay special attention to all the small, wonderful things around me: that my kids aren't using diapers anymore, that they don't have disabilities, that my husband works around the corner and can come home for lunch.

My mom and dad told my sisters and me that when someone gives you a gift-no matter how small-you ALWAYS write a thank-you letter. It's the polite thing to do. So, as I try to teach my kids the same lesson, I remind myself to say thank you to God, as well. That's just plain good manners.
