All cultures, worldwide, have some celebration of gratitude. Of all the differences that would seem to separate us, this is one of the things that we commonly share! We can look around us at the world, and be grateful for many things; family, friends, health, prosperity. However, whether we know it or not, gratitude is a choice. It is not dependent upon circumstances. We can be grateful, even in times of challenge — and yes, even grateful for the challenge, itself! Gratitude opens us up to ever expanding Good — the more we express it, the more the universe will give us for which to be grateful!
