Hey It’s Jet Here.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate! May your day be filled with family, friends, gratitude, appreciation, joy and abundance. My human sister is out of town this year. She and Mom chatted last night. Rachel initiated a discussion about expressing gratitude and appreciation daily, not just on one day. Mom beamed with pride on her side of the phone!
So, you may recall that Mom edited Snoopy’s upcoming Mischief Master Class Book recently. Snoopy and his Mum graciously showed their appreciation in a post. When Mom read the post to us, you could tell she felt grateful in her heart because her face had a special kind of smile on it.
Well, in addition to the post, on the Sunday Mom finished her editing… the doorbell rang as Mom was cooking dinner. When she went to the door, a delivery person stood there with a gift.
Unexpected appreciation fills the recipient with a layered type of gratitude. For Mom, the first layer was the excitement of receiving a gift. Then, after reading the card, she felt acknowledged (VBP – vocab builder project) for her contribution to help make Snoopy’s project a great success. She felt that Snoopy and his Mum received her efforts as intended – from her heart.
You know, sharing such a personal project with another human takes courage, faith, and trust. Mom’s grateful Snoopy and his Mum took the leap of faith, allowing Mom to read and edit their wonderful project. (She will have another read through after our morning constitutional, in about an hour!)
Another great unexpected appreciation day.
