Yesterday after Meeting, one of the Friends told the rest of us that she had recently read a book about thanking, and it inspired her to embark on a practice of writing a thank you note every day. She has bought some stationery and a nice pen, and has restocked her stamps. She said that she was looking forward to seeing what this would be like. "How nice to start each day thinking about who I should thank this day, and why," she said.
What a wonderful idea! What a great spiritual discipline this would be!
I am considering trying some version of this myself.
I can begin right now by thanking all of the readers and commentors of this blog. It has meant a lot to me to find this online community of bloggers and blog-readers. I appreciate the sympathetic attention, the kindred-spirit sharing, the honest questions, and the good support and advice. Thank you!
