An Attitude of Gratitude

Wouldn’t it be great if  Thanksgiving were more than just one day? 

I don’t mean that I want to have turkey, stuffing, and all the fixings every day. (Although I have to admit that I wouldn’t be opposed to the idea.) 

I mean, wouldn’t it be something if every day we had an attitude of gratitude?
