from a participant in 30 Days of Gratitude:
“Congratulations! This is a great book, website and blog. I will pass it along to friends as I start my 30 days of gratitude.
I started keeping a Gratitude Journal years ago when Oprah featured Sarah Ban Breathnach, author of Simple Abundance on her show and talked about it. I’ve had many journals and many starts and stops over the years but I see the power when I do it regularly. Once I heard Oprah say that someone told her to be sure to keep a gratitude list when times were difficult. That didn’t make sense to me at the time as it seems that you have so much more to be grateful for when times are good. However, I have found in my own life that the power of gratitude is much stronger in difficult times. When your gratitude list includes things like skillful surgeons and compassionate hospice nurses it takes giving thanks to a new level.
There has not been any stage of my husband’s illness, death and even now living without him that I haven’t been able to identify something for which I am grateful. I also found that focusing gratitude on my Daddy during his final months transformed our relationship.
I am grateful for having you in my life. I wish you much success with this book and blog and I’ll do what I can to spread the word.”
