Autumn months always make me think about what we have and what we should be thankful for. For me this started at school and celebrating harvest. We would take tins of food or hampers of fruit and veg made up into school and they would donate then to the homeless to help them out as the weather started to turn. The process of gathering crop and what you reap you sow. I totally believe in the later.
Harvest is celebrated in my kids schools where gifts of food are also brought into school and they use it to help others in need. I feel it is so important and really teaches the children about people less fortunate than themselves and the importance of kindness and giving help to someone in need.
It also makes you realise how lucky you are and makes you realise thankful you should be for all you have. I know the simple things like having food in the cupboards and a warm meal on the table are often things we all take for granted.
It’s time to start thinking about the small things, savouring the moment and be grateful for the little things.
Be thankful for the little things in life and not take anything for granted.
Life is pretty busy most of the time, and I’m sure your life doesn’t differ much, but try to just practice a little gratitude each day and really think how lucky you are. I’m sure it will help with your own happiness and make you realise how lucky you are.
What are you thankful for ? ?
Here’s my list
- My wonderful supportive husband.
- My family who love me unconditionally
- The yummy food on the table every day.
- My beautiful children who I will always love unconditionally.
- Lazy mornings and chilled out days
- My wonderful friends who I trust and love.
- The past memories of a wonderful childhood.
- My home which keeps my family safe
- Good health
It’s not just the big things either it’s also the little things, a cuddle from my kids, a yummy hot chocolate, or even a smile from a stranger.
Savour the little things as much as the big.
I hope you have enjoyed reading and it’s made you think of all the things you can be thankful for.
Until next time
