Happy Thanksgiving. . . or is it?

Lots of people look forward to the holidays. That might not be you. Gratitude is hard to come by when you are dealing with dysfunctional family members, the finances are tight, or the season pulls you in ten different directions and your are exhausted.

Gratitude isn’t just about the holidays. It’s what is on the inside of us and it spills out (good or bad) onto everyone around us.

Today I’m resharing a conversation I held last year at this time with two of my best friends, Holley Gerth and Jennifer Watson. We get real about how the holiday can spark an attitude and what to do about that.  It’s honest and maybe you’ll relate.

Grab a cup of coffee and join us around the table. I’d love to hear what you have to say and to pray with you on this day of Thanksgiving. ♥


We learned these helpful things from this conversation:

  • Note what is around you that is worthy of thanks and speak it out loud.
  • The more you step out of the natural, the more you step into the supernatural.
  • Growing a new groove of gratitude comes through practice.
  • You don’t have to be fake with God.
  • Lower your expectations (it doesn’t have to be perfect).

Q: What is one thing right in front of you what is worthy of thanks? Speak it out loud.

Q: “Gratitude sets you up to think better of people.” What is your response to that statement?
