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 .
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 .
