Writer’s Quote Wednesday – A. A. Milne

It is November, the month that brings us NaNoWriMo, NaBloPoMo, Movember, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday, American Thanksgiving and lots and lots of gratitude.  Writer’s Quote Wednesday will focus on gratitude this month.

I love Piglet and all of the other  characters Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin encountered in the Hundred Acre Wood.  Milne’s quote reminds us that the funny thing about gratitude is that like love it is limitless and our hearts know no bounds.  The more gratitude we feel and express the more we experience.

At different points in my life I have practiced living in a state of gratitude in various ways.  One of the ways over the years has been to keep a gratitude journal.

What are some ways you’ve found to be grateful and express your gratitude?

  1. Hello. There’s no better way to express your gratitude than with the simple words, ‘thank you’. I say these words a lot and I mean them every time. When someone says ‘thank you’ to me I understand that they’ve acknowledged and appreciated what I did or said and that’s awesome. 😀
