FMS Photo A Day – I Need To Do This

Give thanks.

With many American friends celebrating Thanksgiving this week, giving thanks has been on my mind. Not just thanks for the grand gifts and gestures, but of the little things that mean a lot, for thoughtfulness, for being a friend, for crossing my path. Life gets so busy that we are sometimes lucky to send off a quick text thank you.  However,  I am trying to be part of the movement of the return of snail mail of correspondence, and hopefully with a fountain pen or ink with some flair. It’s human nature for most to enjoy being acknowledged and appreciated, but did you know, it’s also good for the acknowledger/appreciator 🙂

…Simple gratitude is good for you. Among its benefits: lower blood pressure, strengthened immune systems, reduced loneliness, and measurably improved outlooks on life. Plus, people who practice gratitude “mindfully,” as the current psycho-argot has it, tend to pay things forward; they’re more compassionate to the people around them, generating all-around increased good will. – Glen Martin, The Science of Thanksgiving: Why Gratitude Really is Good for You

A selection of just some of the Thank You cards I have… Boxed cards and blank notebooks are hard to resist but I am trying  hard not to buy any more until I make a dent on my current stock.
