Attitude of Gratitude

"Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

1. Mind your manners. Say please, thank you and excuse me.
2. Smile
3. Pick up after yourself and for someone else too. Be happy you have someone to pick up after!
4. Notice when others do kind things for you, show gratitude by action or words.
5. Say I love you before you leave in the morning and before bed at night.
6. Give hugs daily.
7. Always kiss me goodnight.
8. Don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself. Focus on the blessing of today.
9. Write your blessing down.
10. Show thankfulness for even the little things others do for you.
11. Leave notes in unexpected places like lunch boxes and under pillows.
12. Encourage someone with a compliment.
13. When all you want to do is complain, start listing everything positive in your life.
14. Keep track of what you are thankful for all year long. It shouldn't be only at Thanksgiving time.
15. Remember to thank God for blessings each day.
16. Never forget to write a thank-you note.
17. Do special things to cherish time with your family.
18. Reflect on happy memories regularly. It's okay to hear, "Remember when.." for the thousandth time.
20. Help someone out without them having to ask you. Watch for someone in need.
21. When you are doing household chores, be grateful you have a home to clean.
