Morning guys. It’s Lelanie here, from of Beauty and Love. How was your weekend? I am sure most of us had a great weekend, filled with treats , smiles, happiness and blessings. Do you know what day today is? It’s a day where we focus our attention on people who are not as blessed as us and probably didn’t have such a good weekend. It’s world hunger day. I definitely don’t want this post to be a downer. Instead I would like it to be a reminder of how lucky we are. There are so many people with a lot less than us. Are we grateful for all our wonderful things in our life?

I found this lovely little gratitude print during my online wanderings. It is so lovely and positive, that I can’t help but share it.

It has really spoken to my heat. Especially today. I live in South Africa. Winter is steadily approaching and I know that there are so many people in our country that struggle to get by, that will be cold and miserable today. Yet, I am quick to bemoan my (comfortable) situation. I suppose we all are. So I have decided to make my own Gratitude poster. Here is what I am thankful for today.

 

 

What are you thankful for? Why not take a few minutes to list ten things. You might be surprised at how much you have to be thankful for. Even if it’s the small things.

Ciao, Lelanie. x

    Lovely. And when we are grateful, then we should also do something real for others in need. A link to that something would be a great idea. Thanks!

  2. Amen, I join in your prayer and thank God for all the blessings in my life.
    For all who do good daily and for all who will do good tomorrow

    Hey Susan,

    We normally donate within our community and we are quite involved with a school for learners with special needs in a very impoverished area here in my city. (I actually used to teach there.:) )They don’t have a website, but I could put you in touch with them if you are interested.

    Other options are http://www.charitysa.co.za/hunger-no-more.html or http://leadsa.co.za/ or http://join.actionagainsthunger.org.uk/aah/landing/landing_b?gclid=CN_xkKL8orACFUUhtAodBi7QZw

  4. What a lovely idea. I’m grateful for my snuggly cat Elsa :)

    I kept a list of gratitudes after reading Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts…I let the habit slide and really ought to pick it up again, and remember what I have, and what I can do.

    Thank you for the good reminder.
