But Give Thanks

It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.” ― David Steindl-Rast

It's everyone's favorite time of year. The leaves are changing. The weather is a little bit more crisp. But more excitingly, the holidays are quickly approaching. But in all things, we must give thanks.  Your gratitude should always present itself before anything material or superficial. Let your friends and family know you appreciate them. Aim to give as much as you receive. Live so that your graciousness is the thing people like most about you.
