The unthankful heart … discovers no mercies
but let the thankful heart
sweep through the day and,
as the magnet finds the iron,
so it will, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
— Henry Ward Beecher
Friends and countrymen,
This evening, I was considering how to celebrate Thanksgiving here at Seeing Beauty, and I thought that perhaps I would start a series on things I am thankful for … then I decided that because I’ve already written several times on that topic, I’d rather take advantage of this (albeit very small) platform to reach a group of people.
Cue (drumroll) the Thanks Given Project!
What are you thankful for?
Two weeks. One question. Infinite possible answers.
Send your replies to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your first name, last initial, and if you’d like, your age.
Thank you so much for joining me in this. Gratitude is contagious, and we could all use some more of it.
p.s. Hopefully, Thanks Given will be posted on Thanksgiving Eve. Until then, there’s work to be done. Please share this project with as many people as you can reach. Text the link, post it on Facebook, tweet it, anything. (See those buttons below?) Thank you! I’m excited.
