Grateful 3 0 | T W E N T Y T W O

Today I will tuck a little postcard I printed last November into my Grateful30 notepad . 

Because today, 50 years ago, a man's life was taken . 
But I love what this man, J F K, had to say about gratitude before November 22nd, 1963 .

I was thinking about these words last November + am thinking about them again this year . 
Words can be so powerful, can they not ?
And yet, words can be limited if they are not backed up by actions . 
They only go so far . 
To say and not to do . May as well just not say . 

I am wondering, today, if I sometimes resemble the boy who cried W O L F . 
But - me - the girl who cried G R A T I T U D E .
I say I want awareness . 
I say I want community . 
I say I want to tune my heart . 
To sing Thy praise . 
And yet, do my actions always back it up ?

If I say words, I need to live by them . 
Words alone are just words . Powerless .
Uttered words and a life lived to reflect them .
Limitless . 
Those are my thoughts today . Thanks J F K .

I would love to have others join in taking small moments each day to begin filling each empty space in a gratitude notepad like my own . Writing those W O R D S, those reminders off all that you may have to be grateful for .  Already sent out several notepads, but a few remain . . . so join in the goodness, you . 

And thankful mind was in the same place last 1 1 . 2 2 . 2 0 1 2  :
