Gratitude is the attitude!

Hey, Y'all!


Every day I post a good morning status on my Tonya Kappes Author page. I love to share my morning coffee with readers and friends. It starts my day off to a great and happy start. During the month of November I change my morning coffee posts to a month long of gratitude status's. It's a great way to lift your thankful spirit.

It's the first thing in the morning I see the entire month when I get on Facebook. Reading what everyone is grateful and thankful for really makes my happy juices flow, which make me very happy and motivated to get work done.

It's so contagious to read everyone's happy. How about you? When you hear how someone is thankful and grateful, does it turn your day or attitude around? Leave a comment to be eligible to win a $5 Amazon gift card!

I hope you join me!

Yes, it does influence my day to see what others are grateful or happy for in their lives and it makes me think about the things that I am grateful for in mine. Funny isn't it that we can forget such things in our busy day to day responsibilities.

I enjoyed your lovely post which resonated with me. My day becomes enjoyable and makes a big difference when I see how others are appreciative for what they have.

Hi Tonya,
So many times at one time or another it seems we get caught up trying to meet other peoples expectations. Over the last few years I realized that sometimes we have to just take a moment to sit back and realize all the good things that are happening in our lives. One of the things that I've made room during the day to just put everything aside and sit down to and just take the time to read a good story and have at "take me away" calgon moment that gives me the chance pace to just sit and enjoy all the people and things you love in the world is what really matters.

I agree; when you read and hear about how much we have to be thankful & grateful for it is uplifting.

It does make me happy when people are upbeat and appreciative of what they have.

I have an uplifting story. Yesterday I worked as a cashier at a grocery store. Around 8 pm a middle age woman came through my line and bought two yogurts. She said it was her dessert. She paid for it with a store gift card. She was obviously homeless carrying literally everything on her back. After she left, two of the other cashiers came over and told me the assistant grocery manager and the assistant bakery manager had noticed the young woman and they pitched together and gifted her with the $50 gift card. I was amazed by their generosity. I definitely work with some wonderful people!

Being grateful each day for everything is something we should do daily. Thanks.

It definitely brings my spirits up and helps remind myself that I have much to be grateful for in my own life.

For sure it's a great way to put your mind in the right place when you hear stories about others being grateful. I always feel the world is a better place when I personally get reminded that there's just as much good as their is bad.

I am not on Facebook, but I have so many things to be thankful for...don't we all? I am thankful for family and friends and sweet puppy dogs. :) I am thankful my son turned down a job in Jordan! I am thankful that we live in a land of plenty-plenty of everything we need except money. ;) I am thankful I learned to read and am able to read every day! I am thankful for libraries, for bookstores, and Amazon. I am thankful for home and better health than many. I am thankful and joyous for each new day.
Thanks Tonya for pointing out how much we do have to be thankful for! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I always think about Oprah starting a Gratitude Journal many years ago, where you list 5 things every day for which you are thankful. I did that for two years and now don't write it down because I sit here and think of dozens of things each and every day. It becomes engrained in you. When I see someone in a wheelchair, for example, I am thankful/grateful that I can walk, plus I am thankful that that person has the ability to get around with that wheelchair. It can always be worse....

I enjoy reading and participating every morning. It really makes me think about things. It's always fun to read what others have to say as well. Jill. Minishoes@msn.com
