 Be Thankful

As Thanksgiving approaches, remember to give thanks for your faith, family, friends--and the fabulous students you teach every day.

My son recently shared with me a list of “7 Scientifically Proven Benefits of Gratitude.” It’s taken from an article in Psychology Today magazine. 

1.     Gratitude opens the door to more relationships.

2.    Gratitude improves physical health.

3.    Gratitude improves psychological health.

4.    Gratitude improves empathy and reduces aggression.

5.    Grateful people sleep better.

6.    Gratitude improves self-esteem.

7.    Gratitude improves mental strength. (


Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all of us looked for something (and someone) to be thankful for each day?
