What's the magic word?
That's the question we all use to prompt kids to say 'please' or 'thank you', hoping these promptings become second nature and eventually instill kindness, manners, and gratitude.
Gratitude isn't a magic word. Gratitude is being thankful, showing kindness or appreciation.
If you want to plant the seeds of change, the best soil is gratitude. Be grateful, every day, not on just the days where your blessings are abundantly obvious but also be grateful on the days where it takes extra effort to find things to be thankful for. THOSE are the days it means the most. THOSE are the days where we make a choice to be thankful for all seasons of our life.
