Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Letters Of Gratefulness

--by birdie, posted Sep 2, 2013
For me, this year started with lot of love being showered by lot of people. I received lot of acceptance, forgiveness, and I felt the love of the universe in the way it sent angels into my life to take care of me and ensure I reach places and meet people who would support my journey.
Needless to say, the year also started with a feeling of gratefulness. The fact that I am what I am today is largely because of the people who have come in my life. It doesn't matter if they were there for short or long periods of time. They have touched my being and changed my life in their own unique ways!
My heart was so overflowing with gratitude that I wanted to tell all these lovely people how much they have meant to me! So, I decided to write "letters of gratefulness."
I wanted them to be handwritten and I also added a bit of art work and added one special thing we shared in some form.
It's three months down the line and I still continue to write. This is perhaps the only new year resolution I have ever kept!

And i am thinking of writing also to those people who have no idea that they have had a positive effect on me, like old colleagues, teachers, neighbors. Wow, i can't wait to get started. Thank you, you got me thinking!
