Every night before we drift off to sleep, my partner and I give thanks. We talk about the day and our gratitude for its gifts—friends who have come to dinner, a hug, the arrival of spring’s first red-winged blackbirds, a meal prepared together, a Skype call with the grandchildren, or some small gesture of kindness. Inspiration for my blogs often comes out of those nightly chats.
Still, maintaining an attitude of gratitude can be challenging at times. So here are seven Web sites that offer reminders of goodness and beauty, not just at Thanksgiving but all year. There are many more inspiring sites so please share favorites in your comments.
One site is not on the list only because you are there right now. Care2’s 17.5 million members are a mighty force for good in this world. Thanks for being one of them.
I found this site when I was looking for a virtual candle to light for a friend who had just been diagnosed with stage-4 cancer. Then I discovered the Gift People (dozens of special people, living and deceased), Light Up the World (links to thousands of groups around the globe that “take a stand for a sane and fair political, environmental, and economic future of our planet”) and Read about Gratefulness (a collection of some of the best writings that inspire us to live gratefully). These are only a few of the many treat in store for visitors to this site.
