The Gratitude Challenge

by Jan Shoop
Today’s reflection/affirmation is on the word gratitude. What does gratitude mean to you? What does gratitude mean to your friends and family? What does gratitude mean to your class or school? What does gratitude mean to your neighborhood, city, state or the world?
According to, the definition for gratitude is as follows:
-          the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful
Yesterday we received many comments on our post and I am grateful for all of the kind and thoughtful words. Today I am challenging you! Send us a comment on something or someone you are grateful for or an event where you felt gratitude.
I’ll start the list:
I feel gratitude for the simple pleasures of life, the kindness of friends and family, my faith, and the smiling and laughing of children playing.
Today’s Affirmation:
Today I feel grateful and thankful for all of the people, places and events in my life!
I will attain and maintain an attitude of gratitude!
