Thanksgiving, like many holidays, makes space around itself that affords us the opportunity to briefly change our routines. We make use of this extra space in many ways – to be in the places, or with the people or doing the things for which we are most grateful, or which most urgently need an attention we may not always be able to offer. It’s also an opportunity to recommit ourselves to building just a little space into our lives for regular, daily gratitude. With this in mind, we might ask: what does gratitude look like that is small enough to fit in each day?
