Thank you for …

Thank you to any and all of my readers for not commenting that I missed the celebration of Talk like a Pirate Day last Wednesday. While I should have been on top of it, it totally slipped off my radar. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed the day, me mates.

Friday, however, will be here in a few hours and you can let the reveling begin, not because the weekend will be starting, but due to the UN designating September 21 as World Gratitude Day. This provides an opportunity for you to present an award to someone you feel has done something outstanding in the spirit of globalism.

I’m not sure what they mean by globalism, but with the technology we have today, you could certainly consider anyone in the world your neighbor because you can text, email, Skype, Facetime, etc. folks around the world just as easily as if they lived next door. Interestingly, Jesus had this down thousands of years before the UN. He didn’t call it World Gratitude Day, He just said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” To me, that’s the essence of globalism.

So arm yourself with thank-you cards, e-cards, flowers, and lots of smiles to wish everyone on your worldwide list of family and friends, a Happy World Gratitude Day!

Make sure to be specific when you share your appreciation. You don’t want people to think you’re a shallow person by just mouthing certain words. Here’s a hint, think back – hopefully not too far – of an instance when the person demonstrated consistency, showed kindness, offered help, gave you a gift, or acted in some way that brought you pleasure. Thank them for those things. Make sure you do it for each individual. Not only will it make their day, but it will make yours as well

Have an attitude of gratitude.  Happy World Gratitude Day and thanks for reading!
