Give thanks

What's worse than showing ingratitude? Being grateful for the wrong things.

As Thanksgiving is being celebrated in the US, here is a message that we should never forget:

How Making a Gratitude List Can Change Your Life | Family Dynamics | LV Moms | LearnVest - Where life gets richer

Lists are a fundamental part of our lives - friends lists, resolutions lists, to-do lists, achievements lists, lists of bills, credit lists, vocabulary lists ...

So how can a gratitude list help us in our daily lives?

If you had to draw up a gratitude list, who would be on it?

Are you the kind of person that loves making lists? What are your favorites?

Thanksgiving, probably the most popular American celebration, usually makes people think about what they are thankful for. But have you ever stopped to think about who you are thankful to?

Here’s our list:
partner = spouse = companion
therapists - psychologists, psychiatrists
personal trainers
family doctors
pets: dogs (street hounds and all), cats

Would you add anyone else?

I`d like to thank my first elementary school teacher, Miss Yedda Cobbas Costas.
She was the first one who told me a long, long time ago :


PS: She worked for a county? state? school in a very poor district in Rio de Janeiro called Sampaio.

At that time, state and county schools were all called "escola pública" in Rio de Janeiro.

Have a look at what some philosophers have said about GRATITUDE:

Happy people remember the past with gratitude. They become happy with the present and face the future without fear.

Express Gratitude with words and attitudes. Your life will change in a positive way.
Masaharu Taniguchi

Gratitude is the best measure of someone`s character. A grateful person is someone faithful who is always with you,( doesn`t abandon you).
You can trust him/her forever.
Augusto Branco
