We’ve gone through some rough days the last few months, but now it’s the happy season. Let’s revel in it.
The experts say the first step to happiness is being grateful for what’s good in our lives. So let’s get with it. We’d like to fill the letters pages with as many uplifting notes from our readers as possible this holiday season.
Yes, sometimes it’s hardest to write about gratitude when things are bad, but that may be when we most need to do it. So tell us about your best Thanksgiving, a friends whose wise cracks always make you laugh, the funny things your kids say or do.
Write about a book you’re reading that made you smile, your pets’ antics, a sermon from church that’s just what we all need. Are you in recovery mentally or physically? Share your progress.
We won’t count these letters against your monthly total, so be prolific if you like. Send the gratitude letters from now through December to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make them 200 words or fewer.
We’ll start it off this way: We are grateful for you!
