Why give thanks?

I’m glad you took the time to reach out, give some feedback or just explain what’s not working.

After all how long does it take to say ‘Thanks’? 

I have learned over time that being alive is something to be thankful for no matter if we live a modest life by circumstance or choice. 

Focusing on whether you have a great class of students or not is immaterial. Or a great principal or not. Better that we rethink those thoughts. We’re, in fact, living and breathing and have a job that we love, which is more than some do. 

Here are 5 ways we can all give thanks 

We never know how a simple thank you can affect a person’s day.

  1. Send an occasional card to members of your extended family to say ‘Thanks’. Call or email them to show how important they are to you.
  2. Write a poem or short story describing the sacrifices your parents made for you. Struggles your family endured. Is your life better than your great-grandparents were? How did these life experiences make you a better person?
  3. Find a quiet place to pray or think about all the things you should give thanks for. Your family, their health, the home you have, and say thank you to your Creator.
  4. Reconnect with your family. Actions speak louder than words, so stop the school work, turn off the TV and give your family some quality time! Renewing relationships with your family will bring you closer together.
  5. Keep a gratitude journal to focus your life on giving thanks. Write down three major things you’re thankful for in life. Perhaps you found a parking space or your missing keys.

When You Need a Wake-Up Call

It can be easy to say thanks for a great life, but we can easily fall back into old habits as time passes. In times like this, we need a wake-up call to remind us what is good. Why not volunteer at a hospital, a soup kitchen or a local nursing home. Look at the people you work with, give time to listen to their stories and be grateful you’re fortunate to help those in need.

Giving thanks is receiving 

When you give of yourself – it can make a big difference. This kind of attitude can be very contagious, and you never know; You might be the recipient of a random act of kindness!
