Being “thankful” is never out of style, however, sometimes we need a jolt by an electric cattle prod to help us remember that we should notice all the things that make our life full and happy.

Being ungrateful isn’t one of my vices and I think it is not only because of the teachings of my mother, but also from the experiences in my life.

Great post! I think it's always good to remember what we have to be thankful for. This year, I'm thankful for my brand new husband who put up our tree whilst I was working last night; for home, hearth, and family.

Thank you for sharing!
