During this time of Thanksgiving, it’s nice to sit back and reflect on the many things for which we are grateful. But, sometimes, as we busy ourselves with to do lists, we can lose sight of the basic, simple things in life which are deserving of our gratitude, and often get lost in the shuffle. Take an hour to be mindful on this special holiday and join Denise for a Thanksgiving yoga class on Thursday November 28th, 8:15am. Thanksgiving is a beautiful time to experience the peace that gratitude brings. From the words of W.E.B. Du Bois, tireless civil rights leader and author:
“Give us thankful hearts … in this the season of Thy Thanksgiving. May we be thankful for health and strength, for sun and rain and peace. Let us seize the day and the opportunity and strive for that greatness of spirit that measures life not by its disappointments but by its possibilities, and let us ever remember that true gratitude and appreciation shows itself neither in independence nor satisfaction, but passes the gift joyfully on in larger and better form.”
