“Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts.” – Henri Frederic Amiel

Gratitude if the active process of acknowledging goodness and recognizing its source, according to Dr. Robert Emmons, a psychologist who specializes in researching gratitude and happiness. His research has shown that a person’s level of gratitude is directly related to their level of happiness.

Gratitude in Action – 30 Ways to Give Thanks

One of our favorite new ideas to give thanks is by baking “thank you” bread using a monkey bread recipe. Then, as each family member pulls off each piece, ask them share something for which they are grateful. Here at Peace Learning Center we are grateful for so many things – most of which are a direct result of people like you!

Thank you for everything you do to promote peace in our community.

Peace on,
