Gratitude = Connection

Gratitude = Connection

Gratitude defies a simple definition. It can be experienced as an emotion or a state of being. Appreciation inspires us to act with compassion and aligns us to something greater than ourselves.

Yet throughout all these definitions, there is an underlying theme. Connection. Gratitude arises from our connections to each other, to nature, and to life itself.

It’s having the present-moment, open-hearted awareness that the gift being experienced, be it laughter, flowers or a sunset, could have very well been missed or not occurred at all.

  • We do something slmaiir called best and worst’ and we will go around the table and share the best part of our day and the worst part of our day. And you’re right They DO start storing their experiences to share and sometimes they can’t wait until dinner to share, like the other morning when our 5yo added bubbles to his morning bath without our knowledge and turned on the jets and the bubbles grew over 5 tall! The kids were building tunnels in them and laughing and enjoying, with such pride from their accomplishment. Even though it was only 7am in the morning, our son declared this is definitely my best’ today! . Great tradition. So glad you shared.VA:F [1.9.21_1169]please wait…
