Today marks the celebration of Christmas around the world. It is a day of hope, a day of new beginnings, a day for families and friends to gather together. It means so much to so many, and yet we all have our different memories, traditions and beliefs.
And during this time of Christmas, there are many other holidays celebrated as well. Chanukah has just ended, Kwanza will begin tomorrow. We celebrate the New Year soon and we just celebrated the Winter Solstice as the days now lengthen and the light returns to the North.
Recently I discovered this Tara Mohr quote that spoke volumes to me and shifted my perspective of gratitude. I thank Sor’a Garrett@The SHINE Connection for bringing it to me in her Joy of Giving series.
“Gratitude for makes me feel fortunate, gratitude to makes me feel in my right place-as a humbled, limited, human being. Gratitude for is about counting our blessings. Gratitude to is about being on the receiving end of a conversation with something larger.” ~Tara Mohr
So during this special time of the year, I am filled with gratitude for so much and to so many people. And I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to thank all of you for your support of my new blog. Whether you read, comment, subscribe or pop over from time to time, I extend my gratitude to you.
And I wish you Happy Holidays as you celebrate the season.
