My sister came to visit me this last week and her boots had “A thankful Person is a happy person,” written on the bottom of them. I say had, because when I saw them I could only make out the “A….. appy Person,” as it was written on the soul, I mean sole.
I think the thing about being thankful is you start to see all the things worth celebrating; therefore you celebrate life more often. Like new boots, or birthdays, or a visit from a sister; it’s the marking of things, in little ways by sharing the joy of what we have.
How do you celebrate? How do you mark those moments or things? Perhaps new boots don’t require a bottle of wine but certainly one must parade around a little in them and
express ones thrill of a great purchase, because it is not just about the boots. It is the
gratitude that there are others out there who express their creativity, that we live in a world
that has so many different and wonderful people that someone would think to share their sole, I mean soul, on the bottom of a boot.
