Several of my friends – and likely yours, too – have taken their gratitude to Facebook over the course of November, each day listing another blessing in their lives for which they are thankful.
I haven’t done this, primarily because it never occurs to me to start in on November 1st and then I’m behind. It’s a fun and uplifting exercise. And yet, I noticed a post where someone was thankful that Facebook had the feature to hide posts from others who were doing this so that he wouldn’t have to endure seeing them.
How jaded have we become if somebody’s public note of thanks is an event that rubs us the wrong way? Personally, each note of gratitude I see reminds me of a similar blessing I have and I find myself noting that I’m thankful for that as well.
And so I want to thank my friends who are sharing their gratitude this month. I’m delighted to see my social networking feeds filled with appreciation, blessing, and joy.
