“Saying thank you is not only good manners. It’s good spirituality.”
I find this quote to be so true! The more gratitude you feel towards what you have in your life, big and small stuff, the more goodness you will attract. It’s exactly like saying thank you to a person for a favour or a gift. Next time that person feels more inclined to do something for you. It seams to me as the Universe works pretty much in the same way.
Saying thank you costs absolutely nothing and takes no effort so why not?
In our family we practice gratitude by each person saying three or more things they are grateful for at the dinner table. I think it is really good for kids especially to do this as human beings have a tendency to take things for granted.
So, with all this being said there is no surprise that Thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays.
This year we celebrated with my old friend from Sweden, Annaminh, who lives Upstate New York with her husband James. It was such an extra treat to celebrate with them this year as they just had their first baby, Paloma, four weeks ago.

My hope is that each and everyone starts the tradition of using reusable fabric giftbags instead of paper which instantly becomes garbage (not to mention all the natural resources needed to make the paper). I want you all to do it so much that I even put a video on www.bag-all.com showing how you can make the bags yourself. You can see it here: DIY
