I feel I would be remiss if I did not bring attention to tomorrow (I'm on Pacific Standard Time, U.S.) of the Thanksgiving holiday.
I am extremely pleased that Katie Couric's Notebook on the CBS Evening News
was on gratitude, and made reference to studies by clinical psychologists of the power of gratitude. (You can see her comments by following this link.
) I suspect this is Human Existence 101 to most of us here, but it is reassuring to see the popular media taking a moment to help everyone remember this.
I ask that tomorrow, whatever your plans may be, take even a few moments, give yourself a little mental space, and consider the things you have for which you can be grateful.
(If you wind up shedding a tear or two in the process, I won't tell anyone.)
